    Hi,
    As per my knowledge U can do these steps to check ur skin type:

    If u can find white spots(not actually spots u can say like powder type thing) on ur face that means U have DRY SKIN.

    After waking up in the morning check near ur nose boundary.Is there oil? U can use ur finger to check.If there is so much oil then ur skin is oily.

    Hope this helps to some extent.

    Hi illusions

    In most beauty clinics you can see a device that detects your skin type.

    You can also test in kaya's skin clinic.

    Re: To identify skin type???

    Hi,

    There are 4 types of skin. They are as follows.

    1. Oily skin
    2. Dry skin
    3. Combinations skin
    4. Problematic skin.


    Check out this diagram.
    • Oily skin : T-section will be more oily till chin and C-section will be in medium oil.
    • Dry skin: T-section and C-section will be dry.
    • Combinations skin : T-section will be very oily and C-section will be dry.
    • Problematic skin: (acne, thin layer of skin, sensitive skin)
