How to know your skin type

Share

There are four different skin types (normal, oily, combination and dry). It is important to know your skin type in order to use the right skin care products.
Each skin type is recognizable by symptoms and specificities. You do not feel any discomfort or tightness.

To find out which care products to use, you can consult our article: Choosing the right skin care for normal skin.

Oily skin:

If you have oily skin, your skin tends to shine during the day. You are likely to develop acne pimples and blackheads. These symptoms are caused by an overproduction of sebum in the pilosebaceous follicles.

Combination skin :

If you have combination skin, your skin tends to shine on the T-zone during the day. You sometimes have areas of tightness on your face. Blackheads and blackheads often settle in the same T-zone.

Dry skin:

If you have dry skin, your sebum production is insufficient. This phenomenon creates tightness, redness and scaling on the skin. Wrinkles and fine lines form more quickly.

In addition to the four skin types, you may face skin conditions that can change depending on the season, life stage, or hormone levels. These skin conditions affect all skin types.

Dehydrated skin:

Dehydration affects many people. It is due to a lack of water present in the skin. It causes a sensation of temporary tightness in localized areas and a lack of radiance of the complexion.

Sensitive skin:

The skin is considered sensitive when it marks and heats up quickly. People with sensitive skin have a feeling of discomfort. Skin irritations are common. The skin is marked on localized areas of the skin.
