Understanding the four skin types: normal, dry, oily and combination
- Normal skin. 'Normal' is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin.
- Dry skin. 'Dry' is used to describe a skin type that produces less sebum than normal skin.
- Oily skin.
- Combination skin.
- Sebum and sweat production.
People also ask, what does combination skin look like?
If you have combination skin, then you know what the term “T-zone” means. In fact, you may sometimes feel like your skin has a split personality—oily with large pores on the forehead, nose, and chin, and dry and sometimes even flaky on the cheeks and under the eyes.
Do I have combination skin?
Combination skin: Combination skin usually feels oily in the T-zone (the area that includes your forehead, nose, and chin) but dry everywhere else. Oily skin: Oily skin will feel greasy and shiny all over. If you feel like you are constantly reaching for the oil blotting sheets, this means you probably have oily skin.
How many types of skin do we have?
There are five main skin types: normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. Understanding the different types of skin will give you a better idea of how to treat acne breakouts and reveal smooth, clear skin.
