Wondering What Your Skin Type Is? Keep Reading...

We have four basic types of healthy skin: normal, dry, oily and combination skin which is generally determined by genetics.

 The condition of our skin can, however, vary greatly according to the various internal and external factors it is subjected to. If you need help with identifying your skin type the skin test may be a useful tool.

Normal skin
‘Normal’ is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin. The scientific term for healthy skin is eudermic. Normal skin is well balanced: neither too oily nor too dry.

Dry skin
‘Dry’ is used to describe a skin type that produces less sebum than normal skin. As a result of the lack of sebum, dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.
Dry skin can feel tight and rough and look dull.

Oily skin
‘Oily’ is used to describe a skin type with heightened sebum production. This over production is known as seborrhea. Oily skin has a glossy shine and visible pores.

Combination skin
As the name suggests, skin that consists of a mix of various skin types.
