There are many types of skin, depending on the content of water and oil in it, and the level of sensitivity to certain substances. The difference in skin type is largely influenced by genetic factors, age, hormonal conditions, and general health status. Skin type is one factor that should be considered in the selection of skin care products. Because, the use of skin care products that are not in accordance with the type of skin can be very risky to cause inflamed skin, due to allergies or irritation. Here we explain the differences of several skin types:
Normal skin conditions have a balanced amount of water and oil content, so they don't look too dry, but also aren't too oily. This type of skin is not very sensitive, rarely has skin problems, the pores are almost invisible, and look brighter.
Dry skin indicates a lack of moisture in the outermost layer of skin. As a result, skin like this will feel dry, rough, dull, and small pores. Dry skin can more easily redden, itch, scaly, and peel, especially when excessive scrubbing or contact with extreme weather (for example due to the temperature of the environment is too cold or direct activity in the hot sun).
Oily skin is caused by the production of excess sebum (oil). This condition often makes the face look oily, pores are clogged and enlarged, and easily looks crumpled. People with this skin type tend to be more prone to problems with blackheads, zits and black spots.
Sensitive skin is characterized by skin that is easily inflamed when in contact with several things, for example dry air, sunlight, cosmetics, soap, to food, or other environmental substances (such as smoke, dust). This inflammation is characterized by redness, itching, dryness, peeling, or burning sensation.
Combination skin is the result of a combination of dry and oily skin types. Usually, this oily skin area will be concentrated in the T zone (forehead, nose and chin), while other areas of the skin appear dry.
For ordinary people, it is often difficult to distinguish these various skin types. Therefore, if you are in doubt, you can check your skin condition directly to a doctor or dermatologist. That way, your doctor can certainly recommend you what skin care products are right for you to use.
