What is your Skin Type and what should you be using for it?

Here at zk’in HQ we LOVE all things skincare, and as experts in natural skincare products, we have delved deep into different skin types and created a skincare menu! We’ve put together a list of products that you should be using for you particular skin type, and taken the guesswork out of your morning and evening skin routine.

First of all, do you even know what your skin type is? Some days do you think you have oily skin and others really dry skin? Take our quick step-by-step test to determine what skin type you are.


Step 1; Wash your face with a cleanser and wait 15 minutes.

Step 2; Run fingers along forehead, nose and chin (the t-zone)? Do the feel oily or dry?

Step 3; Run fingers along cheeks. Are they tight and dry or do they feel oily and slick?

Step 4; Use the pads of your fingers to gently push up your cheek a few times to check if fine lines appear.


Based on the zk’in portfolio we have devised a skincare menu  for you! Oily skin in this instance is the same recipe as for combination skin, and if you are pregnant you should use our sensitive skin recipe. Try it now and let us know how you get on!


Very dry to dry skin: skin is dry and tight all over with fine lines. Shop the range here.


Dry sensitive skin: skin is tight in the cheeks and comfortable in the T-Zone. Shop the range here.


Combination oily skin: skin is comfortable in the cheeks but oily or shiny in the T-Zone. Shop the range here.

Oily skin: Skin is oily or shiny all over without any fine lines. Shop the range here.


You should repeat the test again when you need to buy new products just to check your skin type is still the same as your skin type changes based on age, hormonal changes and the seasons.
