Sometimes we go ahead with certain skin treatments without exactly knowing our skin type. Each and every individual have different skin type. Some have extremely dry or oily skin, while others have normal or combination skin (where in the T-zone of the face that is forehead and nose area are oily and rest of skin is normal). I don’t say that all skin treatments are not good. Nevertheless, you must know your skin type before blindly go ahead with any type skin treatment.
