DIFFERENT TYPES OF SKIN


NORMAL SKIN
 It is a smooth textured and evenly toned with tiny pores. Balanced skin types have balanced moisture (water) and sebum (oil) content.

OILY SKIN
This type of skin has over reactive sebaceous (oil-producing) glands,which makes the face shiny especially down the central panel-your nose, forehead and chin. The pores of this skin type are enlarged making it prone to blackheads, pimple and Acne.


COMBINATION SKIN
It is very common and requires separate treatment for each area. It is oily down the central panel and dry on the cheeks. This type of skin lacks water (moisture) and have slightly under active sweat (water) producing glands, its oily down the central panel because T-zone have much sebaceous (oil) producing glands as compare to the rest of the face and oil sits at top of the water (moisture) so it doesn’t evaporate and rest of the face gets drier because there is less oil and water gets evaporated easily especially in winter.


DRY SKIN
This type of skin lacks both sebum (oil) and moisture (Water). It looks fine textured, dry. This type of skin flakes and chaps easily compared to other skin types. Tiny expression lines may be obvious.


SENSITIVE OR ALLERGY PRONE SKIN
This type of skin reacts externally and internally to changes in life. Can be both oily and dry, it can be easily disturbed by skin care products and cosmetics. It tends to go blotchy and have broken veins at the same time; it might show a flushed or reddened look or might even itch.
