Esthetician Monika Tarnowski's Recommendations for Different Skin Types:

Normal Skin: The world is your oyster! Unless you have allergies, most products will work for this skin type. Monika recommends choosing products based on areas you personally want to target such as anti-aging treatments. Hydration is still important, so don't forget to moisturize!

Oily Skin: Using oil-based products on oily skin might sound insane but it's actually a great way to give your skin the hydration it needs without clogging your pores. Monika recommends using water-based or oil-based products for this skin type. Water-based moisturizers and ingredients like aloe vera will absorb into your skin easily without adding any shine.

Dry Skin: If your skin gets dry, flaky, and tight most of the time, you probably have dry skin. Using hydrating ingredients like aloe vera definitely helps but Monika also recommends using heavier moisturizers such as shea butter to lock in moisture that lasts.

Sensitive Skin: For this skin type, Monika recommends using products with little to no fragrance. Natural rose water is a great way to hydrate those with sensitive skin that doesn't react to fragrance.
