How to pick the right product for your skin type
Picking the right product for your skin type can be extremely difficult if you don't have a guide to follow. Lucky for you, we have compiled a list of basic skin types, the most effective ingredients for your skin type and which Alimentary products will suit you best!
Dry Skin: If your skin feels tight and flaky generally (not just during winters), you might fall in the dry skin category. Gently scratching dry skin could lead to scaliness, flaking and peeling.

Oily Skin: On the other end of the spectrum lies those who rarely feel the need to moisturise because of their active sebaceous glands. People with oily skin would generally experience enlarged pores and acne, especially on the nose, chin, and forehead.

Combination Skin: The combination skin type is common amongst men and women alike, and basically refers to those with an oily T-zone area, with the rest of the face being dry or relatively less oily. Because of this, things often get confusing — using different products for different parts of the face.

Normal Skin: Aaah, the dream skin! In layperson's terms, someone with a normal skin type = good skin, one that rarely faces an excess or lack of anything, and that's pretty homogenous. Not only is the normal skin type the easiest to identify, but it's also the easiest to manage.

Sensitive Skin: "Do I have sensitive skin?" is one of the most commonly asked questions. However, although often categorised as a skin type, sensitive skin is actually a condition. You could have oily and acne-prone skin that's sensitive. Alternatively, your skin could be dry, along with being sensitive.
