Here are some things how you can find out your skin type:

Dry Skin: If your skin has a flaky, rough texture after cleansing the face you have dry skin. Dry skin can be caused by a lack of moisture or hydration, environmental conditions, harsh skincare products or genetics. Tips that need to be followed for dry skin are having plenty of water, using gentle cleansers and keeping your skin moist all the time. For hydration use products containing hyaluronic acid, glycerine and ceramides etc.

Oily Skin: Skin that produces a lot of sebum causing a shiny appearance, enlarged pores, acne and blackheads considered oily skin. Causes for oily skin are humid weather, genetics or hormonal imbalance. Products that should be used for oily skin are foamy face wash and light moisturisers that contain ingredients of salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

If you have combination skin you will experience oiliness on your nose, chin and forehead and dryness on the cheeks. Combination skin is influenced by hormonal imbalance, genetics and environmental factors. Skincare products that can be used for combination skin are gentle cleansers, and light moisturisers by customising different products for different areas. 

Sensitive Skin: People with this skin type should be very careful while choosing skin care products and must consult a dermatologist before any use of products.
