Normal skin: skin feels supple, looks smooth, pores are not very visible, there are no oily or dry parts
Oily skin: skin looks shiny / shiny after a while, shiny almost all over the face, bigger pores
Dry skin: the skin feels dry, it can peel off, the pores are not visible, it is easier to see fine lines
Combination skin: usually the T (forehead and nose) is oily, while other parts can be normal or dry
Sensitive skin: easily red, itchy, and peels
You can try to pay closer attention to your skin after a few hours of cleaning your face. Regarding skin care, you can adjust it according to the skin type. Usually, skin care products are used for any skin type so you can choose skin care products more easily.
The following skin care can be done according to skin type:
Normal skin: use cleansers and moisturizers for normal skin, use sunscreen too. Facial scrub is used 1-2 times / week. Generally, normal skin tends to adapt more easily to the ingredients in skincare
Oily skin: use a mild cleanser and moisturizer that is formulated for oily, water based, oil free, and non-comedogenic skin. Choose a sunscreen that is non-comedogenic and oil free too. Use oil control film during the day if it feels too oily. You can try skincare with BHA, AHA, niacinamide, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, clay.
Dry skin: use cleansers and moisturizers for dry skin, oil based, alcohol and fragrance free, avoid washing your face for too long, avoid scrubbing your face too hard, use sunscreen. Some ingredients that are good for dry skin include hyaluronic acid, glycerin, squalane, aloe vera, and various facial oils such as rosehip seed oil, marula oil, argan oil, chia seed oil
Combination skin: product use can be adjusted according to skin conditions, products for oily skin on the oily part, and products for normal / dry skin on normal and dry areas, keep using sunscreen
Sensitive skin: choose a cleanser and moisturizer for sensitive skin that is hypoallergenic, fragrance free, alcohol free, use sunscreen, avoid scrubbing the skin too hard, if it is reddish, use a soothing cream or soothing gel.

The most important thing in caring for skin is the concept of cleaning, you can use a toner if necessary, use a moisturizer, and always use sunscreen. Don't forget to do a patch test every time you try a new product by applying it to 1 part of your face for 1 week. Continue to use if no negative reactions appear, discontinue use if negative reactions occur.
