Types of skin

Skin type is determined by our genes, but there are habits that can exacerbate a skin condition. Knowing your skin type and understanding the ways to maintain it can help you achieve a clear, healthy-looking skin.

Each skin type has a specific set of characteristics and symptoms, and thus requires special attention.

Normal skin

Normal skin is usually neither too oily, nor too dry. Pores are usually small and are not engorged or easily visible. Normal skin doesn’t normally have a great excess of shine, and it also doesn’t tend to be cracked or flaky. There will be few lines and wrinkles and the skin tone is generally even, with no marked blemishes.

Oily skin

Oily skin is the result of both genetic factors and hormonal changes experienced in an individual’s lifetime. Those with a genetic predisposition to active oil glands produce a higher amount of sebum, an oily substance created to help keep the skin soft and hydrated. This oil flows from inside the epidermis to the surface of the skin through pores and hair follicles. When an excess of this oil is produced, it can expand the size of the skin’s pores and result in blockages that often lead to acne or pimples.

Dry Skin

Dry skin feels tight and may also have scaly patches or flaking. The pores are almost invisible. Dry skin is more prone to premature aging and regular irritation of the skin. It appears dull, lifeless and stretched. Dry skin is very prone to allergic reactions to products and hence right care of dry skin is of utmost importance.

Combination skin

Combination skin typically has dry and flaky skin on portions of the face, with excessive oil on others. Many mistakenly believe they have oily skin when they, in fact, have combination skin type. Combination skin is the most common skin type, but it can be hard to identify and treat. The skin will often be shiny in the T-zone, which includes the forehead, nose and chin. These areas tend to have more active oil glands than other parts of the face like the cheeks.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin types may exhibit the characteristics of dry skin, oily skin, or combination skin, but they also deal with a great amount of redness and irritation. Normal skin types may also have sensitive skin, but these generally don’t overlap. Those with sensitive skin types should avoid harsh chemical-based skin care treatments, and can be caused by other skin conditions like rosacea or allergies. Sensitive skin is easily inflamed, so it’s important to choose the right skin care for sensitive skin to avoid any adverse reactions.

AGEING SKIN

Ageing skin exhibits most features of dry skin. With ageing, even the most oily skin begins to turn dry. Lines and wrinkles gradually get more prominent. Open pores also become more prominent owing to laxity of the skin. Ageing skin tends to turn red and get irritated easily and hence needs the right kind of skin care regimen to maintain itself.
