How To Determine My Skin Type

Skin types include sensitive, dry, oily, normal. Some people also have a combination of skin types in different areas of their skin.

Your skin type can also change over time depending on your age, demographics, eating habits and so many other variables such as:

  • Water content, which affects your skins comfort and elasticity
  • Oil, (lipid) content, which affects your skins softness
  • Sensitivity level

I have included an additional skin type that has gained traction over the years and has not been talked about a lot as its own entity “aging/troubled”.

Check out the chart below to determine your skin type and then head over to WWW.JLTC.CO and see what skin loving products we have for you.
