If you answered mostly A…
You have DRY skin.
Dry skin can be genetic or a product of its environment. For example, colder weather can dry out skin. If your complexion feels constantly thirsty and flaky, try a hydrating and moisturizing routine.
If you answered mostly B…
You have OILY skin.
Skin that’s oily can be more likely to experience clogged pores and imperfections, but oil also helps keep skin looking young by minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by dryness. Control the slick with a routine for a more balanced complexion.
If you answered mostly C…
You have NORMAL/COMBINATION skin.
Normal/combination is the most common skin type, with drier cheeks and an oily T-zone. You get the best, and worst, of both worlds, but when you customize with this routine, skin stays looking balanced and fresh.
If you answered mostly D…
You have SIMPLE/YOUNG skin
Younger skin tends to be a touch on the oily side and can be more sensitive, so it needs a gentle routine to keep it feeling fresh and looking clear, promoting even skin tone and visibly reduced imperfections.
