Did you know that there are five different types of healthy skin? Normal, dry, oily, mixed (oily and dry skin), and sensitive skin types are available.
THE NORMAL SKIN - This skin is neither too dry nor excessively oily. It has a consistent texture, no flaws, and a clean, soft look, and it does not require any particular maintenance.
HYPERSENSITIVE SKIN - Sensitive skin is more likely to react to stimuli that normal skin does not. It has brittle skin and is frequently accompanied by discomforting symptoms such as heat, tightness, redness, or itching. This skin type loses its barrier (or protective) function, allowing germs and irritating chemicals to penetrate and raising the likelihood of infection and allergic responses. It is the type of skin that requires extra care to combat dryness, roughness, and its typical look.
SKIN THAT IS DRY - Dry skin is often caused by extrinsic causes such as weather, low air humidity, and immersion in hot water, and it is typically only transitory. However, for other people, it may happen more frequently and possibly become a lifelong problem. Although dry skin can break, exposing it to bacteria, it can create other skin conditions, such as eczema, or make it more susceptible to infections if not adequately controlled.
The signs and symptoms of dry skin might vary based on factors such as age, health state, and the reason. It is distinguished by a sense of tightness and roughness. It may also turn an ashy gray hue, with desquamation, irritation, and burning as well as minor cracks Cracked skin is typically seen in very dry skin and consists of microscopic fissures that, in more severe cases, may be larger and even bleed.
SKIN THAT IS OILY - Oily skin seems porous, damp, and brilliant. It is caused by excessive fat synthesis by the sebaceous glands and is mainly caused by hereditary and/or hormonal factors. It is common in teens and young individuals under the age of 30, and is generally associated with the appearance of acne.
SKIN COMBINATION - Because the distribution of sebaceous and sweat glands is not uniform, it exhibits features of both dry and oily skin. The T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) normally has more oil, but the skin on the cheeks is average or dry.
