The foundation of every great skincare routine starts with knowing your skin type. If you use products not made for your skin, you will not achieve your skincare goals. So, if you don’t know your skin type read our blog about identifying skin type here.

For all intent and purposes of this blog will classify skin types into three groups oily, dry, and combination. Of course, some skin experts might argue that there are other skin types, such as sensitive and acne-prone, but any skin type can be both sensitive or acne-prone.
