Buy the Right Products for Your Skin Type

One tricky thing about shopping for skin-care products is working out which ones suit you. Is your skin sensitive? Oily or dry? And when does it become “mature”? If you find that two or more points in any one of the categories below describe you, try products labeled for that skin type.

  • By midafternoon, a greasy film has developed on your face, even though your skin felt fine when you left home this morning. The culprit? You probably have an oily T-zone.
  • Acne breakouts are making you feel like your 16-year-old self. Minus the homework and boy-band crushes, anyway.
  • The more you scrub your skin, the oilier it seems to get, and the more you seem to break out. That’s because stripping the skin of oils prompts it to produce even more oil to compensate and restore balance.
