Want to better understand skin types?
You only have one skin. It’s the closest thing to you. It’s your first line of defense against the element. It does so much for you, but most of the time it’s taken for granted, until it doesn’t look or feel the way that it should …
Firstly, your skin type is predetermined by your genes – it’s the skin you’re born with, and the one that’s with you for life.
There are basically three skin types, oily, normal and dry. Some people may have more than one skin type, which is often referred to as combination skin.
Normal skin has a perfect balance of oil and moisture. It’s radiant in appearance and is blemish-free. ideally we all want normal skin which has the perfect balance of oil and moisture. It look radiantly healthy, it;s generally even in tone and texture and it’s blemish-free.
Oily skin results from having overactive sebaceous glands (oil glands), which means that your skin secretes more sebum than normal skin. As a results, oily skin has a shiny appearance and a greasy feeling texture.
On the other side of the spectrum is dry skin. It is characterised by a dull appearance and has a rough texture and is the result of skin that secretes very little sebum.
Want normal skin?
