Skin Types Explained

Skin Types Explained

Today I would like to talk to you about skin types. It is very important to self-assess and know your skin type so that you can choose the right products for you.

The skin types are as follows:

Normal skin

Not too dry and not too oily, normal skin has no or few imperfections. No severe sensitivity. Barely visible pores. Unfortunately, due to damaging environmental conditions, poor lifestyle, only a few people have this skin type. It is very rare to have a normal skin type, but if you have a normal skin type, it is important to maintain a good skincare routine however basic it would be.

Oily skin

Oily skin is shiny, has visibly enlarged pores, blackheads, acne-prone, sometimes redness due to inflammation.

Dry skin

Dry skin is dry, flaky, tight, often irritated, wrinkles appear at a younger age, at younger age pores are basically invisible Rarely affected by acne, but reacts very strongly to changes in temperature.

Combination skin

Combination skin is often oily T-zone and normal or dry cheeks. Combination skin is the most common skin type that requires a little bit more time and effort in terms of caring for different areas of the face. The dry part of the face should be nourished with more oily, moisturising face creams and the T zone with normalising creams.

It is important not to confuse skin type with a skin condition.

The skin type is genetically inherited and we cannot change it, but with proper skincare, it is possible to improve its appearance.
