You can determine your skin type by following the simple steps below:

1) Cleanse your face thoroughly before testing your skin type using the Deep Sea Cleanse and leave the skin as it is for at least an hour. During this time, your skin should return to its natural state. Be sure not to touch the face as this may alter your skin type.

2) Press a tissue on various parts of the face, concentrating on the typical t-zone areas such as the forehead, nose and chin.

3) The last step is to examine the tissue:
a) Oily skin will reveal greasiness all over and the tissue may stick to parts of the face.
b) Normal skin will reveal no greasiness and no flakiness on the tissue.
c) Combination skin type will reveal patches of oiliness on the t-zone area and typically normal patches on the remaining areas.
d) Dry skin will reveal flakiness/dead skin cells on the tissue.

N.B Remember to carry out this test every season as the skin can alter dramatically across seasons and as we age.
