What's your skin type? Understanding and getting to know your skin type is arguably the most important thing you can do for your skin. Without this knowledge, you could inadvertently compromise your skins natural balance and trigger inflammation which could lead to irritation, breakouts or even premature aging (yikes!) by using the wrong products. The most common skin types are: oily, dry, sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin. Once you determine your skin type, it is important to remember that skin can change seasonally with weather conditions and with age over time due to hormonal transitions. Always listen to your skin.
