The 7 types of skin are normal, oily, combination, dry, sensitive, sun-damaged, and acne-prone.
Each type of skin has its own set of characteristics and needs that should be taken into account when determining the skincare routine.
Normal skin is often described as balanced, with a healthy glow and no visible pores or blemishes. This type of skin requires minimal effort in terms of maintenance because it can usually handle most skincare products well. However, proper hydration is still very important for normal skin to maintain its suppleness and resilience against environmental stressors like pollution or sun exposure. It’s also beneficial to use gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreen on a daily basis to ensure optimal health in the long run.
Oily skin tends to appear shiny due to an overproduction of sebum within the layers of your epidermis. Oily skins require more attention than other types because they are prone to breakouts if not cared for properly; this means using oil-free products with ingredients that help control excessive sebum production while providing adequate hydration at the same time. Exfoliation is key here too – use mild scrubs once or twice per week depending on your individual preferences – as it helps remove excess oils from your complexion without stripping away its natural protective barrier which keeps out impurities from entering deeper layers of your dermis.
Combination skin contains both oily and dry areas; this could mean having an oily T-zone (forehead/nose area) while having drier cheeks simultaneously, or vice versa whatever combination you have will determine what kind of routine you need! People with combination skins should look for non-comedogenic products that don’t clog their pores but still provide enough nourishment without leaving them feeling greasy afterwards; lightweight serums work best here since they absorb quickly yet offer up sufficient hydration levels without feeling heavy on the face throughout the day. Avoid using harsh exfoliants so as not to further strip down essential lipids which protect against environmental aggressors like UV rays etcetera!
Normal skin needs minimal maintenance and should be hydrated regularly.
Oily skin requires products that control sebum production and exfoliation once or twice a week.
Combination skins need lightweight, non-comedogenic products to provide adequate nourishment without feeling greasy.
