How do I know if my skin is oily?

You may already have a clear idea of your own skin type, but if not, here is a way to help you find out. After cleansing with your usual cleanser, don’t apply any products but leave the skin to rest for two hours, then look at it in the mirror. If after 2 hours you have visible oil and shininess, you are oily.
