What’s Your Skin Type?

by admin  /  Jan 19, 2022

Knowing your skin type is important. It helps you know about which problems you need to be most concerned now and in the future and which skin products and treatment will be most effective for them.

Genetics and external elements impact your skin and determine its type . Genetics impact issues such as your hormones, sleep cycles, and how much oil your glands generate. External elements include weather, sun, medications, and the chemical substances around us.

Your skin type can change over time, as you mature. Where you live and your home and work environment (cold weather, dry office) can also impact your skin type.

Four Skin Types

There are four basic skin types:

  • Normal Skin: normal skin is neither too oily nor too dry.  It is soft, has few flaws, and usually does not require special care. 
  • Dry Skin: dry skin generates less sebum and lipids than normal skin (protective oils and substances that hydrate and protect skin).  It, thus, requires extra moisture to build a protective shield against external elements.   Dryness, flakes, fine lines, dullness, early wrinkle appearance, rosacea, elasticity loss, and cold weather sensitivity are additional, frequent problems.   
  • Oily Skin: oily skin produces large amounts of sebum (oil), which causes breakouts.  Pores are large and skin tends to be shiny and acne-prone.  Puberty, temperature extremes, and stress can affect hormones, imperfections, and skin changes. 
  • Combination Skin: as the names suggests, combination skin is a mix of both dry and oily skin.  Skin in the t-zone area (nose, chin, and forehead), tends to be oily, while skin in the check and jaw area, tends to be dry.  Treatment in the different areas depends on the skin’s type.  Combination skin is common.
