Knowing your skin type is really important. Before buying a skin care product, you should first know what skin type you have. Applying the proper product to your skin will not only give you the best skin care but at the same time you’ll save a lot of money.

If you’ve notice, your skin type can change over time. Teenagers tend to have oily skin but when they become older, it becomes drier. There are several factors that can affect your skin type: genes, hormones, diet, environment and stress level just to name a few.
