Following a skin-care routine that's geared toward your specific skin type is important. Whether you're prone to breakouts, dry patches, an oily T-Zone (or all three) you can't expect those skin-care concerns to go away without the proper treatment.
There are six main skin types — oily, dry, combination, acne-prone, sensitive, and normal — and each one requires different things. For those with super dry skin, you don't want to use anything made with harsh ingredients as they can make the issue worse. On the other hand, if you have oily skin, you don't want products that are too heavy and will clog your pores. But, no matter what skin type you have, your routine should focus on three main components: cleanse, treat, moisturize.
