Your skin can change over time. For example, younger people are more likely than older people to have a suitable skin type.

Everyone’s skin is healthy to them, but to care for diverse skin types, we often group people into four major categories. Ascertaining your skin type is an essential first step in knowing how to treat your skin, or that of your customer, what products to use, and how to have perfect skin.


Skincare is the range of practices that support skin integrity, enhance its appearance, and relieve skin conditions. They can include nutrition, avoidance of excessive sun exposure, and appropriate use of emollients.


There are five common skin types: normal, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive. Blotting a clean tissue on your face in the morning is an easy way to find out your skin type. A healthy skin type has good circulation, and there will not be any trace of sebum (or oil) on the tissue. Healthy skin is soft, with a smooth, even skin tone.

An oily skin type will leave blots of facial oil on the tissue, particularly from the cheeks, nose, and forehead. This type of skin has overactive sebaceous glands, producing more oil than necessary. Oily skin can be caused by hereditary factors, diet, hormone levels, pregnancy, unsuitable cosmetics, and stress, leading to acne flare-ups and enlarged pores.

It is vital to thoroughly clean the skin regularly with gentle, soap-free cleansers.

A dry skin type has a low level of sebum and does not maintain oil easily. Dry skin is often flaky and feels tight after being wiped. Gentle cleansing and a rich protective moisturizer for dry skin are essential to control that tight, uncomfortable feeling. It may be necessary to adjust your dry skin moisturizer for the changing seasons With.

A combination of skin type oil is produced around the ‘T-zone’ of the nose and forehead but not on the cheeks, mouth, and eye areas. The best skincare for combination skin will involve treating each region differently.

Having a sensitive skin type can mean different things to different people. It can be caused by skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, or allergies. Sensitive skin can become inflamed and irritated easily. It is essential to choose the right skincare products for sensitive skin because many cleansers and moisturizers contain ingredients that can cause adverse reactions to this skin.
