There are how many different types of skin?

There are four varieties of skin, and knowing which one you have will help you take better care of yourself. Find out what skin type you have by reading on!

Normal Skin-type

Normal skin is a gift, and you should appreciate it. With attractive, thick skin that does not prematurely age and grows smoothly, half of your aim of looking younger has already been fulfilled. The result is fewer issues and lowers maintenance requirements. Cleanse and moisturise your skin using a mild cleanser to maintain it youthful and healthy-looking.

Dry Skin-Type

Because dry skin generates less oil and is depleted of its natural vigour, it should be avoided. In most people, deep wrinkles appear around the eyes and on the lips. This type of skin is susceptible to both dryness and temperature fluctuations. As a result, people with dry skin should drink plenty of water and occasionally take vitamins to hydrate it. An energising wash, used regularly, can help maintain it that way. To keep your skin looking healthy and moisturised, apply a moisturising cream designed for dry, dull skin twice daily, in the morning and at night. 

Oily skin is associated with acne

When your skin produces more sebum than usual, you’re more likely to have oily patches, acne, and open pores. People with oily skin should use an oil-free cleanser and wash their faces twice daily. Acne-fighting treatments like the Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, manufactured by various skin-care companies, not only eliminate acne but also aid to prevent future outbreaks. Add some grapefruit to the mix for freshness and smell even more! When protecting one’s skin from the sun’s harmful rays, persons with oily skin should use SPF 50+ sunscreen. When applied to the skin, there is no greasy residue.

Combination Skin-Type

Although this skin type seems normal on the outside, the T-zone is greasy. As a result of its higher sensitivity to the sun’s rays and susceptibility to UV damage, oily skin requires additional sun protection compared to other types. The pores can be cleaned with a gentle soap. Using a deep cleanser twice a day with Sunscreen (SPF 30 -50) is a good idea if you have combination skin.

For better and faster results, consult a dermatologist.  Their examination is necessary to identify your skin type and the products that are most suited to it.
