Skin Care Products

     In order to buy the right skin care products for you, you need to know what type of skin you have. There are a few main skin types - normal, dry, oily, sensitive and combination, and products are sold to deal with each.

     Most people have normal skin. This type of skin has no real, persistent problems. Dry skin feels tight and is often flaky and dull looking. Oily skin is usually shiny with large pores and is prone to breakouts. Combination skin exhibits symptoms of each skin type.
Sensitive skin often breaks out in rashes or other skin irritations when you use skin care products.

     If you have normal skin you can use almost any type of skin care product. If you have dry skin, you'll want to look for moisturizing products. If you have oily skin, you'll want to use skin care products that are light, water-based and oil-free. If you have sensitive skin, you'll want to use products that contain few, if any, perfumes or dyes. There are products made for combination skin as well.

     Not all skin care products will work for everyone, no matter what skin type they say they are designed for. Everyone is different and you may have to try several skin care products before you find one that you like.
