Have you been searching for the best products to get the skin of your dreams? There's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to achieving this; it all comes down to using the right skincare for your skin type. There are four skin types, and they're largely determined by genetics–but external factors (like the weather) can also affect your skin condition. It's important to know what kind of skin you're dealing with so you can target your problem areas.
If you're feeling like getting into a self-care routine just got more complicated, don't worry! We've broken it down for you with the best products for your skin on Baopals, all organized by skin type.
Normal skin is usually characterized by smooth texture and small pores, all signs of good balance. Your T-zone might be a bit on the oily side, but overall your skin is neither too oily nor too dry. If this is your skin, then good news: you don't require a super-fancy routine to maintain your skin's condition. Below are some skincare essentials that we recommend.
People with oily skin have higher sebum (an oily substance that keeps our skin and hair moisturized) production than those with other skin types. They also usually have larger pores that can get clogged. You can also tell if you have oily skin if you hardly need to moisturize your skin. Below are some products that are either oil-free, or contain ingredients like tea tree that work great for this skin type.
As opposed to oily skin, dry skin produces less sebum than normal, resulting in brittle skin with lower elasticity. Swap in some of these hydrating products into your routine.
As you may have guessed from the name, combination skin is...a combination of skin types. This is typically characterized by an oily T-zone and normal to dry cheeks, so picking the right products to use can get a little tricky. Below are some of the best items you can use to help balance out your skin.
