Understanding the uniqueness of your skin is the first step in achieving beautiful skin. We go through life often blindly selecting skincare based on the “cool” products, what’s dirt cheap, or what friends and family use instead of taking the time to learn what is best your individual skin.
So, today, let’s analyze pores!
Looking in the mirror, your pores will appear larger in your T-zone which is across your forehead and down your nose. Spreading out from the t-zone, pores will either get a little smaller, significantly smaller, and maybe a little larger. At your jawline they nearly disappear. If your pores get smaller quickly, you skin produces less oil, and your skin can be considered dry. If you wake up in the mornings with oil on your t-zone, but not the rest of your face, your skin is combination dry.
If you see large pores further out on your face, your skin can be considered combination-oily. If they are all over, your skin is considered oily.
If you’re having trouble deciding if your pores seem large or small, compare with a friend or love one to put their size into perspective.
When you wake up in the morning, before immediately removing oily from your t-zone, try using a clean finger to move the oil around, pushing it to dryer portions of your face. This helps maintain an even water barrier all over your face, preventing the prospects of dry patches.
So grab a mirror, and take a gander at that mug!
Tomorrow we’ll talk routines for each skin type.
