Dry skin is flaky, scaly, or rough.

Oily skin is shiny, greasy, and may have big pores.

Combination skin is dry in some spots (cheeks) and oily in others (forehead, nose, and chin).

Sensitive skin may sting, burn, or itch after you use some makeup or other products.

Normal skin is balanced, clear, and not sensitive.

 

Moisturize

You may think you're too young to need moisturizer -- or your skin is too oily -- but all skin types need one every day. Apply it while your skin is still damp from washing or rinsing to help seal in moisture. If you have acne or your skin is oily, find a moisturizer that's lightweight and oil-free, so it won't block your pores.
