Identifying Your Skin Type

We are all different. Some of us are taller than others, some more muscular and some are leaner. You might have brown eyes and dark hair, while your friend has green eyes and blonde hair. But what many people might not notice on the first look is how different our skin can be.

There are five skin types and it’s quite easy to figure out what yours is.

1. Normal Skin

This is the most common skin type of the five. People with normal skin type have soft, smooth and even skin tone. Normal skin also has good circulation and not too much oil or sebum on the tissue.

2. Dry Skin

Dry skin has very low levels of sebum and generally doesn’t hold oil very well. It is usually very flaky and feels tight when it is wiped with a towel.

People with dry skin have to make sure to regularly apply a moisturizer and perhaps even use a different one for different seasons.

3. Oily Skin

This skin type produces more oil than is necessary and can be caused by several different factors, including hereditary, hormones, pregnancy, diet, stress or poor/unsuitable cosmetic products.

Oily skin needs to be cleansed regularly with gentle, soap-free cleansers to prevent acne.

4. Combination Skin

With combination skin, you might have oily parts around the nose and the forehead, while your cheeks, eye and mouth areas would be mostly dry. Since both dry and oily skin types require different care, it is best to use different moisturizers and cleansers for each part of your face.

5. Sensitive Skin

Your skin might be sensitive to a number of things. This is typically caused by an allergy, or a skin condition such as an eczema or rosacea, and it can become irritable and easily inflamed.
In order to treat sensitive skin, you should make sure to use the right moisturizer and cleanser, since the wrong one could cause an adverse reaction and add to the problem.
