The Italian olive skin tone Care Sheet Guide

Italian olive skin tone

The Italian olive skin tone is one to watch as it has a medium to medium-dark tone following its green tinge which it earned its name” The Olive Skin Tone” is pretty much a rare commodity to have. 

I know! Iknow that not all of us have any sense of what skin type do we have. But the one thing I know for sure is, if you don’t know your skin tone, picking out the perfect product for your skin tone can be such a challenge. 

No wonder many of your skincare range is what your friends recommended to you regardless of them not knowing your skin tone type.

Hence you end up getting the opposite results, if not a skin irritation after using those skincare products. This is why you first have to identify your skin tone.

Also, did you know that what you wear can sometimes be conflicting to your skin tone? I mean, have you ever seen someone wearing an outfit that doesn’t seem to suit him /her but it suits someone of a different skin tone? 

There is a huge role for any skin tone you happen to have than you realize, and as a result of not identifying your skin tone, you are risking making schoolboy errors with skincare products and fashion etiquette too.

Luckily, with the help of a skin tone sheet, you can quickly identify your real skin tone and make sure that you are using the best products for the type.

What is the skin tone Sheet?

This is a method that allows you to identify your skin tone by using a sheet of paper, to help you in picking the right products and know what color of clothes match your skin undertone.


How does it work?

Basically, all you do is hold a piece of white paper to your face. The aim here is to assess if you are warm-toned or cool-toned. 

The results come in two ways, either the sheet of paper will make you look more vibrant or you will look like your skin lacks luster. 

If your skin looks vibrant in the presence of the paper, then you have a cool skin tone that has blue undertones. If it seems the opposite, then you have a warm skin tone, which is associated with yellow undertones.


So, what colors should you wear?

Generally, if you have a warm skin tone, colors like brown, green, gold and red will suit you best. 

On the other hand, colors such as blue, pink, silver and purple will look great on people with a cool skin tone. 

Having looked at the skin very briefly, let’s take a look at some Vitamin C serums and Skin toners that you can use.
