It is quite confusing to find the right kind of product for your skin type when there is a lot of variety to choose from. This post does not talk about a brand that you like or the cost of the products but it is about the form and texture of any skin care product that will suit your skin type. Every person's skin is unique. A product that suits one person will not necessarily be suitable for another as both individuals might have different skin types and the product might affect each differently. There are 3 basic steps for skin care i.e. Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing. It is highly important to use the right form and texture of any of these products to get the best results. Here are the different forms:



Cleansing milk: It has a thick and milky texture. It has equal amount of oil and water in it.

Suitable for: Normal/dry/combination (not too dry, not too oily) skin

Cleansing oil: It can have oily or milky texture.

Suitable for: Normal/dry/very dry skin

Cleansing water: It is more water like with a little touch of oil in it

Suitable for: All skin types.

Cleansing foam: It has more water in it

Suitable for: oily/ combination/ acne-prone skin

Cleansing cream: It has a thick and creamy texture. It has more oil and less water.

Suitable for: Normal/dry/very dry skin

Cleansing gel: It is viscous and can have bubbly texture with water. It is more water based.

Suitable for: oily/ combination/ acne-prone skin



Water based texture: It is more commonly found and is good for all skin types

Gel based texture: It is not found commonly and is good for oily/acne-prone skin



Cream: For dry skin.

Gel: For oily/combination/acne-prone skin.

Lotion: For normal/combination/acne-prone skin.

Oil: For dry/very dry skin.    

Milky: For normal/combination/acne-prone skin.
