Knowing the type of skin you have is the first step towards having beautiful skin. These are the five different skin types and they are determined by how much or how little oil your skin produces. The factors that determine how much oil you produce are genetics, diet, medication, stress, and even your skin care routine.
In her book, “Beauty the new Basics”, Rona Berg details the five different skin types and suggest that you take the following skin test to determine the type of skin you have:
Wash your face, pat it dry, then take few pieces of rice paper or lens-cleaning tissue paper and press on the different spots on your face. If you skin is oily, the paper will stick, pick up oily spots and become translucent. If the paper doesn’t stick or pick up any oily spots, your skin is dry. If it sticks in your t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) then you have normal-combination skin. About 70 percent of women have normal-combination skin type.
Combination Skin Characterized with a smooth and even texture with medium size pores and can tend to have dryness on the cheek area while being oily in the t-zone. Here are our product suggestions for Normal and Combination Skin types:
Facial Cleansers, Facial Toning Mist, Facial Moisturizer, Facial Scurb, Pore Minimizing Mask, or Nutrient Rich Mask, Creamy Eye Treatment or consider our starter pack Go Natural Facial Cleansing Pack.
Oily Skin Characterizes by enlarged pores and excessive sebum that generates shine on the surface that blocks the pores and causes blackheads and blemishes. You may, on occasion, experience some tightness. Here are our product selections for Oily Skin Types:
Facial Cleansers, Facial Toning Mist, Facial Moisturizer, Facial Scurb, Pore Minimizing Mask, Creamy Eye Treatment or consider our starter pack Go Natural Facial Cleansing Pack.
Dry Skin The characteristics of dry skin include tightness after cleaning, tendencies for fine wrinkles, flaking and red patches. It rarely gets oily.

Aging or Damaged Skin Similar to dry skin that also feels tight with visible wrinkles with slack skin tone especially around the cheeks and jaw line with leathery texture and broken capillaries.
Sensitive Skin The characteristics of sensitive skin include skin that is easily flushed and irritated, tends to be thin and delicate with fine pores, and prone to broken capillaries. It can react to food, stress, alcohol and weather.
