Most cosmetics are designed for a specific skin type, and is listed on their products. For example, hypoallergenic products are clinically tested to be safe for all skin types. If you know your skin type it makes it easier to have your skin care products tailored to your beauty care needs. Use blotting paper to pat your skin all over your face, no presence of oil means you have dry skin, and oil indicates you have normal/oil skin. For professional results see a dermatologist to test your skin type.

Sensitive skin can be easily irritated, and must be treated with all-natural ingredients. There is a number of popular organic skin care products for sensitive skin.
