Yasmin Karachiwala and Dr Jaishree Sharad often make effective videos and discuss common problems that people face in general. A while back, the two spoke about how to identify skin types and then design a routine accordingly. Dr Jaishree said that without going for any skincare product, it’s important to know your skin type first. You can categorise your skin into seven types – normal skin, oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, acne-prone skin, sensitive skin and pigment skin.
To identify your skin type, she stated, “When you wake up in the morning wash your face with soap and wait for an hour. After an hour has passed, take tissue paper and lightly dab it on your face. If the paper is smooth then you have normal skin.”
