What is your skin type? How to choose products and ingredients for your specific skin type

Skincare is one of the most important undertakings in anyone’s daily routine. If you want healthy and glowing skin, you must prioritize skincare. Lather Green has a wide range of products that you can use for this purpose. However, for you to choose the most fitting products and ingredients for flawless skin, you must first understand your skin type.


Different individuals have skin types that generally fall into the following categories: oily, combination, dry, normal, acne-prone, and sensitive. If you are wondering how you can differentiate them, keep reading this guide to learn more.


Determining your skin type


Bare-faced method

Thoroughly cleanse your face with a mild cleanser and pat it dry. Do not apply anything for the next 30 minutes and examine how the skin feels. Any of these signs will help inform you of your skin type:


Skin feels tight – dry skin

Noticeable shine on the skin – normal/combination

Shine on the cheeks – oily skin


There are other methods that you can use to get these answers, but the bare-faced method is the most reliable.


Choosing skincare products suited for your skin

Once you have determined your skin type, you are better placed to choose a fitting product for your skin. There is a wide range of products, including Pure Body Butter and Sweet Rain Body Butter, among others.



Do not buy skincare products out of hype. If you are going to buy something just because your friend told you to do so, it is important that you ask them the type of skin they were dealing with. That would give you a clear picture of how the product would work for you.

The ingredients contained in the skincare product are equally important. Each of these ingredients has varying roles, and you must understand what issue you are dealing with.


  • Shea Butter and Mango Butter – Serve as moisturizing agents

  • Avocado Oil – Help moisturize and protect your skin from damaging UV rays

  • Coconut Oil – Reducing inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and helping heal wounds

  • Grapeseed Oil – even out your skin tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Tocopherol (Vitamin E) – Handles the same roles as Vitamin C and would work best when both ingredients are combined


The skincare products at Lather Green are created with a special focus on these ingredients. Our body scrubs and body oils

includes these ingredients as well. Each of these products features the right ingredients aimed at handling particular skin problems.
