Apparently, you can tell your skin type using tissue – and this method has been there for a while.
Top international beauty magazine Instyle, laid out a step by step routine of this skin type finding method.
First things first. Wash your face with a cleanser to remove all the dirt, oil and makeup from your face.
Using a dry towel, pat your face down.
Leave your face bare for about an hour. Do not moisturize. Avoid touching your face as well.
After an hour, take a large piece of tissue paper and dab your face with it.
Types of skin
Normal skin – No signs of oil on the tissue paper
Dry skin – No oil on the tissue paper but your face feels tight and is flaky
Oily skin – Tissue is oily and your face looks shiny especially on the nose, forehead and cheeks.
Combination skin – Your face is oily around the T-zone area (the forehead, nose and chin) while other areas of your skin are dry.
Of course, the most sure way to know your skin type is by consulting a dermatologist but it wouldn't hurt to know how to do it yourself at home.
