What is my skin type?

There are five key skin type groups, which we've described below. Choose the skin type which sounds most like you, and click through to see the products we stock at Natural Supply Co which have been developed to offer the best results for you.

If you need any extra help, please email Sarah (sarah@naturalsupplyco.com), who has a background in dermatology nursing, for further personalised advice. 

Normal Skin: Normal skin is typically smooth and healthy with small pores. It is not too oily or too dry, and rarely experiences breakouts. Normal skin requires a simple skincare routine to maintain good skin health and keep premature signs of ageing at bay. You can see our recommendations for normal skin here.

Dry Skin: Dry skin is lacking in oil. It generally has small pores, and is more prone to loss of elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. Dry skin needs a nourishing skincare routine to help replace lost oil, firm, nourish, smooth, soften existing and prevent further fine lines and wrinkles. You can see our recommendations for dry skin here.

Combination Skin: Combination skin is both oily and normal to dry... tricky! Combo skin tends to have an oily t-zone (across the forehead, down the nose and chin, sometimes to jawline) and is normal to dry on the cheek area. It's important to keep combination skin hydrated so as not to exacerbate any oiliness or dry patches. You can see the products we recommend for combo skin here.

Oily Skin: Oily skin has excess oil with large and visible pores, and it can be coarse in texture. Oily skin is prone to breakouts and acne. It can be imbalanced, and may have visible redness and flaky patches from excess oil. Oily skin needs a skincare routine to calm and provide oil control, whilst keeping the skin's moisture levels balanced. You can see our top recommendations for oily skin here.

Mature Skin: Anti-ageing skincare has been developed for what is known as 'mature skin' but we hate that term! However for the sake of correct information... mature skin sees fine lines and wrinkles become more prevalent due to redistribution of fat throughout the body. You may notice your skin is also becoming very dry, sometimes even irritated as the body loses its ability to maintain moisture levels. You can see our top picks for anti-ageing skincare here.
