Normal Skin

Also referred to as 'Balanced Skin', a person with normal skin has a balanced oil and moisture content, with no visible pores or blemishes. The skin is smooth and has a healthy, even tone. If you have normal skin, you can use a variety of skincare products without worrying about irritation or dryness.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is characterized by excess sebum production, which can lead to enlarged pores, blackheads, and acne. People with oily skin often have a shiny, greasy appearance. To manage oily skin, it's important to use products that control oil production, such as cleansers, toners, and moisturizers that are oil-free or non-comedogenic.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is characterized by a lack of oil and moisture, which can result in flaky, itching, and redness. People with dry skin may also have fine lines and wrinkles. To manage dry skin, it's important to use products that are hydrating and moisturizing, such as creams and lotions.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is a combination of oily and dry skin, with some areas of the face being oily and others being dry. The most common areas of the face that are oily are the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin), while the cheeks are dry. To manage combination skin, it's important to use different products for different areas of the face.
