Are you always confused when Skin Therapists ask you what your skin type is? Or really unsure what to write when filling out skin consults forms/surveys and they ask for your skin type?
What does this question mean? And why do Skin Therapists ask this?
Looking after your skin and having healthy skin begins with knowing your skin type, as this is critical in determining what products to use on your skin.
Most of us don't really know our skin type and this is the reason why we often choose the wrong products for our skin - which can then lead to even more skin conditions or problems in the future. For example, if a dry skin type is using harsh acne products on their skin, this would be fatal to their skin health and barrier function.
