Which word best describes how your skin feels?

Oily

Oily

You have oily skin. Oily skin is caused by an overproduction of oil (sebum) by your sebum glands. This skin type is most prone to acne, enlarged pores and a shiny complexion. Care for your skin with gentle skincare products.

Sebamed USA recommends their VISIO collection, designed for oily skin.

Dry

Dry

You have dry skin. Dry skin feels tight and can look dull. You probably experience red patches, cracking and itchiness from time to time., Dry skin means small facial pores, but it can also result in more fine lines and wrinkles over time. Limit the duration and temperature of your showers and baths, and use ultra-hydrating skincare solutions.

Sebamed USA recommends applying their Urea line of skincare at least one per day to rapidly rehydrate your skin.

Normal

Normal

You have normal skin, you lucky thing you! Normal skin is more or less flawless, so you must be doing something right. You probably have a pimple-free radiant complexion, invisible pores and low sensitivity. Keep it up!

To maintain normal, healthy skin, Sebamed USA recommends using their Classic line to reinforce your already strong skin barrier.

Combination

Combination

You have combination skin. You probably have shiny skin around your T-zone (nose, forehead, chin) and dry skin around your eyes, hair and jaw lines. We're also betting that your pores are larger than normal and you're more prone to blackheads. You'll benefit from targeted care in different areas of your body.

Sebamed USA recommends using their VISIO solutions in oily areas and their Urea line in dry spots.

Sensitive

Sensitive

You have sensitive skin. Whether your skin type is a result of genetics, certain triggers like ingredients you are allergic to, or another reason, sensitive skin requires thoughtful care. You likely experience frequent bouts of blotches, rashes, redness, itchiness, dryness and burning sensations. You may even have a skin condition such as psoriasis or eczema. Make sure you wear sunscreen when outside and use gentle, delicate skincare products. Refrain from smoking and drink plenty of water.

Sebamed USA recommends their Fragrance Free solutions for sensitive skin.
