The bare face test goes like this: wash your face with a soft cleanser, clean off the wetness with a clean towel, and do not apply any moisturizer or clean for the time being. After 30 minutes, take a close look at your skin texture. If you don’t find any redness, dry patches, or oil on your face, you have a normal skin type. If your face is dry and tight, you have dry skin, but if your face is oily and greasy, you have oily skin.
