I had real trouble figuring out what kind of skin I had, and what products i should be using. I have finally perfected it.
One thing i have learnt that made a huge difference was accurately identifying my skin type for example you might think you have dry skin but because you use harsh toners and products containing alcohol it has stripped your skin of its natural oils, or maybe you think you have oily skin because you inadequately cleanse or use to many oils.
You may not be what you think you are. You might think you have dry skin but it might be that you have oily skin or normal skin
