The inability of our skin to retain enough moisture or oil causes dry skin. If you generally feels your skin tight after washing your face, you also experience dry or flaky skin. Dry skin is associated with wrinkles, fine lines. Dry skin people usually do not experience breakout as they normally have fine and small pores. However, they are very prone to experience dehydrated skin. This is due to the lack of sebum in their skin and insuffficient amount of water. The skin look dull as a result of the build up of dead skin. You should minimise the exposure of sun to prevent further damage to your skin.
Oily / Combination Skin
How do you know if you have a oily skin? If your skin tends to be shiny, you have a enlarged pore and is prone to blackheads, acne and blemishes, you will belong to this group. People who have oily skin tend to experience breakouts due the production of excess sebum. People with combination skin are also associated oily skin. The oily skin is generally around the T-Zone area of the forehead and the nose area and you have less oil surrounding the cheek, eye and neck area which is the cause of dryness and dehydration. People with Oily or Combination Skin need to manage their skin well to keep it under control. Our lifestyle, diet, environment and products we use can contribute to the skin imbalance.
People with sensitive skin tend to have more fragile and thin skin and usually experience redness when exposed to heat or under direct sunlight. Their skin reacts easily to extreme temperature and is prone to irritation. People who have sensitive skin needs to take special and gentle care of their skin. They should use products that are tested for sensitive skin to help to control their skin sensitivity and prevent further damage. They are usually allergic to certain products and is prone to broken capillaries of the skin.
Those people who has a normal skin type usually do not have much skin problem as they have a good balance of water and lipids which provide sufficient hydration and moisture to the skin to reduce the skin aging process. They generally have a clean and clear complexion and healthy looking skin. The sebum production is normal and they generally has a smooth appearance with fine pores, even skin tone and a good circulation. This is a perfect skin type as you have a even skin tone and free of blemishes.
