WHAT'S YOUR SKIN TYPE?

TAKE OUR QUIZ AND SHOP YOUR TYPE

Your perfect skincare routine starts with your skin. This blog post explores the basic skin types, and includes a little quiz to help you decipher yours. Remember, skin types aren't meant to be prescriptive or put you in a box. That said, it can be a useful starting point to help navigate your way through oodles of skincare products.

If you have specific skin issues such as hyperpigmentation, eczema, acne and other conditions, we've made finding the right treatments even easier. Just click on "Shop by Skin Concern" in our directory to explore our specially curated collections.

F I N D  O U T  M O R E | T A K E   Q U I Z  ➪

SKIN TYPE:

COMBINATION

Your T-zone can be oily, while your cheeks tend to be dry. Don't fret - it is the most common skin type!

Did you know?

If you target your oily areas by using products which excessively dry out your skin, you might be making it worse - your skin usually produces even oil to compensate. 

Shopping tips: 

Segment your skincare, by only using products such as blotting papers and sebum-absorbing power (like this one from innisfree) on your oily areas. Use pH balancing products on every area of your face and always remember to moisturize!

SHOP FOR YOUR COMBINATION SKIN HERE → 

SKIN TYPE

DRY SKIN

There's dry skin, and then there's dehydrated skin. While both feel tight and uncomfortable, dry skin suffers from a lack of sebum production whereas dehydrated skin lacks water and occurs with any skin type. Now, if you have dry skin, a tailored skincare routine is usually required to manage it.

Did you know?

Dry skin gets worse in winter, under constant air-conditioning and dry weather. A humidifier at home can make a big difference!

Shopping tips

Hyaluronic acid and humectants like glycerin, shea butter and squalene are your best friends.

SKIN TYPE:

OILY SKIN TYPE

Over production of sebum means that your face may be shiny especially in the T-zone. You may be more prone to acne and congestion.

Did you know?

The silver lining to having oily skin is that it tends to age slower than dryer skin types.

Shopping tips

Dehydrating your skin actually has the result of your skin producing more sebum to compensate. Balanced moisture is still important for oily skin! Centella is your best friend. It not hydrates, but also gently eliminates excess sebum.

S H O P  F O R  Y O U R  O I L Y  S K I N  H E R E → 

SKIN TYPE:

BALANCED SKIN TYPE

Balanced skin is not too oily nor too dry. It produces enough sebum and generally enjoys good blood circulation.

Did you know?

You don't have to go all out with the skincare routine but maintaining good skin through the seasons still requires one! Follow a basic skincare regimen (cleanse, tone, moisturize) and stay hydrated.

Shopping tips

Add an antioxidant serum to keep your skin nourished and well protected. To maintain a healthy skin barrier, always apply SPF. Try acid exfoliants for that extra glow factor.

SHOP YOUR SKIN TYPE HERE → 

SKIN TYPE:

SENSITIVE SKIN TYPE

This is a skin condition rather than a skin type. Strong products tend to sting, and you may be more prone to redness and rashes than others. It just means your skin needs a little extra attention.

Did you know?

A simple skincare routine and focusing on products that rebuild your skin barrier can greatly improve skin sensitivity.

Shopping tips

Look for products with oats, calendula, aloe vera and endothelial - which have cooling and soothing properties. Niacinamide also works well, especially in low concentrations. Until skin sensitivity is reduced, avoid active ingredients like acids and retinol.

BEAUTY OF JOSEON: INSPIRED BY ROYALTY

Beauty of Joseon is what happens when traditional Korean medicine (also known as Hanbang) meets clean skincare. It’s inspired by women of the Joseon Dynasty, the royal ruling family of Korea for over 500 years until 1910. Apart from establishing Korea’s modern capital Seoul and inventing hangul (the Korean script), the court was also famous for the beauty standards of its women. Joseon women famously shunned ostentatious beauty routines in favour of disciplined skincare using natural ingredients. Joseon women pretty much personified the “skin first, makeup second” movement before anyone! This is the essence of Beauty of Joseon: with elegant, holistic and effective formulas, it’s little wonder the brand has earned a legion of diehard fan (with Kanvas Beauty among them!).
