The skin feels soft and comfortable, neither tight, nor oily. It is balanced and has an even production of sebum and moisture. For normal skin, skin care is recommended, which maintains a good moisture level and protects the skin from external influences, such as cold. Do not opt for heavy products that clog the pores.
The skin is both oily and dry and is often characterized by a oily T-zone (forehead, nose and chin). This is a very common skin type, which requires more complex skin care. For combined skin, balancing skin care is recommended and a good idea is to have a basic skin care routine, to which you add specific products for spot treatment of the T-zone or dry areas.
The skin has an overproduction of sebum and becomes slightly glossy. The pores are often large and the skin may be more prone to pimples or blackheads. For oily skin, moisturizing skin care is recommended, which is easy for the skin to absorb. A common mistake is to use dehydrating products, which can have the opposite effect and increase the skin’s sebum production.
The skin is moist and greasy and feels tight, especially after cleaning. The pores are often small and there may be scaly parts. Dry skin is often sensitive and can itch. This type of skin is recommended for moisture and oil rich skin care that works in depth and protects against sun and wind. Avoid products containing water.
The skin has reduced tension and luster and fine lines or wrinkles have occurred. This is because cell turnover and collagen formation decrease with age. For mature skin, skin care is recommended with a maximum of moisture and repairing properties. To regain luster one should choose antioxidant and vitamin rich products.
The skin responds to active ingredients or scents and is prone to blush. It can feel tight and irritated. In fact, sensitive skin is a long-lasting or temporary condition rather than a skin type, and one is often even dry. For sensitive skin, gentle, fragrance-free and soothing skin care is recommended, which provides both moisture and oil. Avoid to many changes in your skin care routine.
