Skin types and how to know them

We can know the type of skin by the distinctive characteristics of each type. It is known that oily skin is characterized by abundant oily secretions, and dry skin is the one that lacks fat and suffers from a lack of its natural fats and always needs moisturizing. Normal skin is characterized by balance and that it is complexion Moderate, sensitive skin is quickly affected by external stimuli, so appearance is the one through which we can know the type of skin, and the types of skin are: 

  •  Normal skin

 which is fair and balanced in its secretions and texture, and has several characteristics, including that it does not suffer from acne and does not suffer from allergies, and it is characterized by its narrow and natural pores, smooth texture, fresh appearance, uniform color, and no pigmentation and spots. Of the grains or pimples



  • oily skin,

 which is a type of skin that has problems secreting fat significantly, which leads to a change in the characteristics of the skin and infection with pimples, grains and acne.


  •  Dry skin

 is the one that always suffers from dehydration as it lacks its natural lipids in an annoying way and suffers from cracks, crusts, pigmentation and dehydration, and is harmed by fluctuations in weather, water and heat, and one of its characteristics is that it always suffers from a feeling of tightness, a feeling of itching, and a heterogeneous and rough texture. Parts where the skin is oily and parts where the skin is dry and difficult to care for, because caring for oily areas dries up dry areas, and taking care of dry areas harms the oily areas and increases their fat. Blackheads and acne appear.


  •  Sensitive skin

 suffers from allergies due to cosmetics, care and hygiene, and special products should be used to treat and care for sensitive skin, as it is quick to irritate and its characteristics are rapid redness and itching because it is dry and the feeling of burning spreads and sensitive oily skin is greasy in summer and dry in winter.

What is the shape of oily skin and its advantages?

Oily skin is famous for its shiny appearance, greasy texture, secretions, and acne, and one of its advantages is that it gives a younger age than its real age. The question here is: does oily skin never age? The truth is that it does not age easily, because it is a skin full of fat, it contains an increase in the amount of natural moisturizers because it has an overactivity of the sebaceous glands and this makes the fine lines that appear in the elderly are not noticeable and this delays the appearance of wrinkles on oily skin where the skin is thicker and this Makes wrinkles and lines invisible.


Mixed skin types Mixed 

skin is considered one of the most difficult types of skin to deal with, as it contains all types of skin in one skin, and mixed skin suffers from the difference in the size of the pores in it. The pores are narrow and the skin is dry and there is also an unevenness in the color of the mixed skin. It is an uneven skin because the oily areas are shiny and darker than the dry areas and it is difficult to care for them. As we have already said that caring for oily areas harms dry areas and vice versa because the problem is in the presence of oily areas And dry in the same place and this is a difficult problem, for mixed skin types, there are three types of mixed skin: 

  •  mixed oily
  •  mixed dry
  •  and mixed normal, and 

this makes it very difficult to care, oily mixed skin is where the secretion of glands, oils and fats is large and its pores are wide It contains black heads, and the difference between oily mixed skin and original oily skin is the presence of some dry areas in oily skin Mixed skin only oily skin is uniform in all its parts, dry mixed skin always suffers from itching, redness, continuous dryness and skin tightening and is prone to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, normal mixed skin, in which fat is concentrated in the shape of the letter T in the forehead and nose area, skin problems Normal mixed skin is less than oily, mixed oily and dry mixed skin, and it also suffers from pimples and blackheads on the nose area, but the problems of normal mixed skin are easy to respond to treatment.
