Understanding Skin – Skin Type vs Condition

​​Understanding your skin is the first step to a fully developed skincare routine. Consider the skin concern you want to address, then make sure the products suit your skin type.

Skin Types

Combination skin features two or more different skin types on the face, and typically presents with dry and flaky skin on portions of the face, with excessive oil on others.

Oily Skin is used to describe a skin type with heightened sebum production. This over production is known as seborrhea. Those with oily skin tend to notice a great deal of shine on their face, and may deal with terrible acne breakouts.

Dry skin skin feels tight and you have have dry patches that may feel irritated. Your pores are almost invisible, you can have premature wrinkles and your skin is regularly irritated.

Sensitive skin 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 It can be hard to define normal skin types and characteristics, as they are made up of a degree of expectations. ‘Normal’ is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced skin. We often prescribe to a normal skin type by their concerns or conditions.
