Find out your skin type

Dry, oily, combo, sensitive - the types are endless! If you can't find your skin type, we recommend trying this quiz from Teen Vogue to determine it!

Now we've established that, let's get into the products! 

Acne Prone Skin

If you suffer from acne, then I recommend washing your face with a cleanser like this Mario Badescu one, £14 that has acne fighting components such as salicylic acid to help calm your skin.   

Sensitive Skin

If your skin is more on the sensitive side, I would recommend formulas with 'kind to skin' properties like Simple's Moisturising facial wash, £3.99 - I use this at home and my face feels refreshed and moisturised every time. 

Dry Skin

Dry skin requires moisture so I recommend this No. 7 cleansing lotion £9.50 from Boots. This lotion will hydrate and refresh your dry skin leaving you feeling radiant!

Oily Skin

For oily skin types, why not try a shine control facial wash like this Clean and Clear scrub, £4.25. This one will also make your skin feel energised so be ready for that!

Combination Skin

Combination skin requires a bit of both, so why not try this cleansing gel from Olay, £2.79? It has aloe vera extracts and purifies the skin without drying it out!

Which of these will you try?
