You know I love quizzes but often I just feel like multiple choice doesn’t have the answer I need to pick lol! In the end I got–
OSNW: Oily, sensitive, non-pigmented and wrinkled skin often has acne breakouts or facial redness and flushing, as well as frequent skin rashes and irritation. Unfortunately this skin type has less protective skin pigmentation and because of that has a tendency to wrinkle due to current or past lifestyle habits that may include sun exposure or smoking cigarettes.
But now I am going through it again … And have questions so I can figure out the answer.
All my life I thought I had oily face especially tzone but now that I am using a facial routine I am not sure because I don’t get oily. I was probably dehydrated a bit and so excess oil. After cleansing now I add hydrating products and serums and a moisturizer to lock it all in. After doing this my face feels more just normal and really soft. I rarely get oily.
Now the next one-
I try to go more towards sensitive skin products mainly because they don’t have fragrance in them. Not really sure that I necessarily need sensitive for my face though. But they are working well and have no scent so I have been sticking more to these types of products. I’ve never been diagnosed with Rosacea but I’ve never seen a dermatologist (out of my budget right now), I do have a red patch on my right lower cheek and have for as long as I can remember. A lot say if you have rosacea stick to sensitive products because your skin is sensitive. When I am warm my face gets red super fast and really red (i’m guessing this is flushing?) - I think that is hereditary same happened with my dad, same with my son and my niece. And I rarely break out. Every now and then I get a pimple here or there. My face never gets itchy. I am 34 and have wrinkles under my eye in the inner parts, but that is about it. I’ve noticed slight pigmentation on the very top of my forehead the past year- I am guessing from poor use of sunscreen and easily getting sun burn but I have started using sun screen. My pores I would say are not visible unless you look very closely.
I’ve used all sorts of products though: glycolic acid, azelaic acid, fermented stuff, niacidamine, other exfoliating acids that I can’t spell lol… Snail products, etc. Stuff that some don’t react well too but I have had no issues.
