How to Determine Your Skin Type

Combination skin, oily skin or normal skin? Admittedly, it is not always easy to correctly assess your skin and assign it to a skin type. However, having a basic knowledge of your skin type is key to help you take better care of your skin and choose the right products. Here is a simple test you can take to determine your skin type.

Determine your skin type

What skin type do you have? Time to find out!

  • Cleanse your face thoroughly with a gentle cleanser.
  • Pat your skin dry – don’t rub!
  • Don’t use any other products and wait for about 30 minutes.

Now it's your turn! How does your skin feel? What do you notice when you look into the mirror? Your observations are crucial to figure out which skin type you actually have!

Skincare for Mature Skin

Do you wish to reduce the first fine lines or even deeper wrinkles? Mature skin benefits greatly from rich anti-aging creams and firming active ingredients. There is one thing all of our anti-wrinkle products have in common: They contain our unique Celumer Marine Extract. It offers a gentle combination of highly effective ingredients, which makes it easy to combine anti-aging benefits with a skincare routine tailored to your individual skin type. Not all of us have one specific skin type that can easily fit into just one of these categories. That is why during the development of new DALTON products, we ensure that all of our products can be flexibly combined with each other to meet every skin’s individual needs.
