1. What does your skin look like first thing in the morning?
Usually slick and oily—I make a dash for my face wash.
Lackluster—I always look like I haven’t gotten enough sleep.
About the same as it always does, with a little oiliness around my forehead and nose.

Take the quiz to find out what your skin care regime should be.\n No\n <p><strong>OILY SKIN</strong></p>\n<p>Get your oily skin under control and looking stunning, not sweaty. Start with your morning routine: make sure you’re exfoliating two or three times a week and washing up with an oil-free face wash. Follow it up with a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer (you can use a heavier one in the winter). </p><p> </p><p><font color="#006400"><strong>SPONSORED TIP:</strong></p><p>Burt\'s Bees New Natural Body Lotions can help perfect your skin, naturally.

Take the quiz to find out what your skin care regime should be.\n No\n <p><strong>DRY SKIN</strong></p>\n<p>Look dashing, not dull—dry skin needs plenty of TLC, and it starts in the shower. If you notice that your skin feels extra dry and itchy post-rinse, it’s not in your head: one study found that taking frequent hot showers and baths is the leading factor in dry skin. Dial it down a few notches so your water temperature is warm, not boiling, and follow up with moisturizer. Skip the soap-based cleaners, astringents, and toners—they’re too harsh for your skin. When shopping for foundation, look for one that has "moisture" in the name—many foundations have separate formulations for dry skin and oily skin—and steer clear of powder and mineral foundations, which will dry out your skin. Finally, don’t be afraid to exfoliate—use a gentle formula no more than once a week to get rid of dry skin cells and reveal the smoother, healthier skin underneath.</p><p> </p>\n\n<p><strong><font code="#006400">SPONSORED TIP:</strong></p>\n<p>Burt\'s Bees New Natural Body Lotions can help perfect your skin, naturally.

You’re likely to have oilier skin around your T-zone (your nose and forehead), so use a water-based, oil-free, noncomedogenic moisturizer only in the spots where you need it. Keep skin looking its brightest by exfoliating once or twice a week, and make sure you’re not overdrying it with toners and astringents (we know it’s tempting!)—drying skin out too much actually sends your sebaceous glands into overdrive, leaving your problem spots even oilier. </p><p> </p>\n\n<p><strong><font color="#006400">SPONSORED TIP:</strong></p>\n<p>Burt\'s Bees New Natural Body Lotions can help perfect your skin, naturally.
