Skin Type Categories:
When you determine your skin type, keep in mind that your skin’s unique needs depend on its environment. It can easily change with your location, season, and lifestyle.
Take time to listen to what your skin is telling you, when it needs more nourishment and hydration, more protection from wind and temperatures, less stress and more sleep, etc.
Your skin gladly tells you its needs - just take time to listen to it.
