The first step to achieving a flawless skin is determining your skin type. It helps you to choose the right beauty products that your skin needs to look beautiful naturally. The more you know about your skin, the better care you will be able to provide it.
If you are confused about what skin type you have then don't worry, we have got you covered!
Basically, there are total 5 skin types - Normal, Dry, Oily, Combination and Sensitive. Let's talk about them in depth!
What's Your Skin Type
Normal Skin Type
If your skin feels neither too oily, nor too dry throughout the day then you are one of those lucky people who have normal skin type! Smooth, radiant and blemish free skin also indicates that you are in the normal skin type category.
Dry Skin Type
Does your skin start to feel rough, tight and flaky even a few hours after applying a moisturizer? That means you have the dry skin type! Dry skin can be really annoying at times.
It can get worse during the winter season - unless you pamper it well. Apply a good quality moisturizer on your skin at least twice or thrice a day to prevent it from getting dry. Using a moisturizer that contains natural extracts of plants will be more rewarding for your skin!
Oily Skin Type
Clogged/enlarged pores, whiteheads/blackheads, excess sebum, etc, are the signs of oily skin type. By using the right kind of facial cleanser and moisturizer, you can get rid of the oiliness and greasiness from your face.
People with oily skin type often skip using a moisturizer as they feel that their skin will become more oily because of it. That's actually a wrong notion! Even if you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize it regularly to keep it healthy and happy.
You can use a light weight/oil free moisturizer that would not make your skin greasy.
Combination Skin Type

Combination skin type can be described as being a mix of oily and dry skin patches on different areas of face. Typically, if you've got combination skin, it will be the T-Zone area (forehead, nose and chin) where you might experience oiliness while the rest of your skin will remain dry or normal. It's the most confusing skin type out of all of them!
Especially when you're choosing a facial moisturizer, you would start to wonder whether you should pick a light weight one or a richly moisturizing one. Try the DeBelle Fairness Cream which will give your combination skin just the sufficient amount of moisture and hydration without leaving any trace of greasiness!
Sensitive Skin Type

Red, itchy and irritated skin indicates that you have sensitive skin type. It requires utmost love and care otherwise it can get unpleasant and painful. There are a lot of things that can trigger sensitive skin, but it's usually provoked by the different types of products you might be applying on your face.
Avoid the use of cosmetic products that contain harsh chemicals. Switch to something natural that won’t harm your skin. Our fairness cream comes with the soothing properties of mulberry extracts attached to it. This cream can become the best friend of your sensitive skin from the first use itself!
We hope that this post helped you to understand your skin type.
