Skin is the biggest organ in the human body. So to care about it is very important. The skin condition depends on many factors, for example eating habits, lifestyle, weather conditions. Every skin has specific characteristics, which depending on the moisture content, production of sebum and the way in which it reacted to the environment, we can divide it into four types- sensitive, dry, mixed and normal.
You often have spots, skin bumps or peeling. Your skin is extremely dry, and with a redness tendency.
The sensitive skin, reacts very violently to the external conditions – dirt, hot and cold weather, wind and etc. The sensitivity may be the same for dry, oily and mixed skin. Sensitive skin has the tendency to become red, mainly on the cheeks, and can cause a feeling of itching or burning. If you take medicines, the stress or the incorrect choice of cosmetics, may provoke bad symptoms.
Sensitive skin is very reactive, so we can care very carefully about it.
Your skin peels and has dry spots on it, some places are thicken or red. Your pores almost invisible.
Dry skin has lack of lipids ,or with other words – luck of sebum, which hardens its moisturizing. So that kind of skin has to be nourished before hydrating. Dry skin is very dry, when you touch it, peels , strains and you do not feel very comfortable. It is very important to make difference between the genetically dry skins from the physiologically one, which conditions may vary from the climate, or from eating habits. There are pathological cases as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema.
Your skin shines, has enlarged and rather visible pores and is prone to potential pimples and comedones.
Oily skin is a direct result of the overproduction of sebum. One’s face and back are most prone to this condition. If we are to characterize oily skin we would pin down the following 2 criteria – shiny, enlarged and visible pores. Oily skin can, however, be caused by a number of factors such as smoking, a genetic predisposition, hormone imbalance, stress, weather changes or contamination of the skin itself.
Oily skin is most likely to affect the so-called T zone (forehead, nose, chin). Often oily skin comes along with an oily scalp.
Combined Skin Type
Your skin is prone to becoming oily at the T zone (forehead, nose and chin).
The combined skin type includes two types of skin and is characterized by excessive oiliness of the T zone and a dry-to-normal cheek skin. This type of skin is rather hard to deal with, as it combines to different courses of treatment. It is this that calls for the use of an adapted product and especially delicate care.
It is important to note, that during the course of time often this skin type transitions into a dry one type.
Normal skin type
Rarely do you find yourself having pimples and comedones, enlarged pores or red spots and your skin looks healthy and hydrated.
The normal skin type is naturally considered the ideal type. It is the standard for which every one of us strives for by using different cosmetic products. It is not too oily, nor too dry, and doesn’t create any discomfort or react to outside factors.
