There are 4 different skin types: Oily, Dry, Combination and Normal skin…

OILY SKIN: This is characterized by excess shine,large visible pores,pimples and blemishes. The accumulation of excess sebum(a natural skin lubricant and moisturizer) leads to clogged pores,blackheads and build up of dead skin cells making it difficult to have a clear healthy skin. The good side is “the oil locks in more moisture in the skin making it supple,elastic and less prone to wrinkles..

DRY SKIN: Our skin needs a certain amount of moisture to maintain flexibility, suppleness and for protection. Dry skin lacks moisture…In severe cases moisture is nearly absent leading to cracking,scaling and itching. Skin feels tight and dry,wrinkles and lines are more visible,presence of small pores…

COMBINATION SKIN: This is a mixture of both oily and dry skin. Some parts are oily, others are dry. E.g Oily skin in T-zone (Chin, forehead and nose) and dry skin in Butterfly zone (cheeks).

NORMAL SKIN: This is the best and easiest to maintain. It’s neither dry nor oily,has medium sized pores a person with normal skin usually has a clean and clear complexion…

SENSITIVE SKIN: This is an add on,one usually has one of the above skin types PLUS Sensitive skin. A person who has a sensitive skin reacts to all sorts of things e.g clothes,cosmetics,temperature e.t.c.
