How to determine the skin type and how to care for it?

People are always confused when determining their skin type, especially when buying cosmetics and skin care.

There are different types of skin, such as normal, oily, dry, complex and sensitive skin.

The skin can change from one type to another over time. This article offers different skin types and ways to identify and care for them.

Specific agents for each skin type

There are many factors that can identify and determine different skin types, for example the percentage of water that affects the elasticity of the skin and the percentage of oils produced by the skin and the extent of skin sensitivity.

Oily skin

Oily skin

This skin type is characterized by the secretion of many oils and fats, which lead to a set of characteristics of people with oily skin, such as the shiny appearance of the skin, large pores, the thickness of the skin, the appearance of pimples and whiteheads, and also the outbreak of acne and pimples.

There are several reasons that lead to the appearance of oily skin, such as a defect in the body's hormones, stress, hot weather accompanied by high humidity, and certain types of cosmetics and also there is the genetic factor.

Normal skin

Normal skin

People with this skin type are lucky because it is one of the best skin types. Often people who have good health and nutrition and exercise regularly have normal skin.

It is characterized by its balanced properties between dry and oily, and is also characterized by pore-free and wide circulation, and without acne and pimples, it is basically good soft pink skin. Normal-skin is velvety, with no acne and even in color

All you have to do with this skin type is a little care, such as washing every night with soap and water suitable for normal skin and moisturizing once a week.

Mixed or complex skin

Mixed or Composite skin

It is one of the different skin types. It is basically the one between dry and oily skin. The concentrated fat part is usually in the forehead, nose and chin area, which forms the letter "T", while the dry part is located on the cheeks.

Mixed skin has slightly larger than normal pores, pimples and a shiny appearance.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin

This skin type is characterized by rapid redness and inflammation. Sensitive skin is usually dry and thin. People with this skin type always suffer from itching.

The guaranteed way to accurately determine skin type

Different skin types can be distinguished in an easy and guaranteed way. Just wash your face thoroughly with water and dry it with a soft, clean towel. Leave it for an hour without applying any lotion or makeup.

Then, using a soft tissue, press all areas of the face from the forehead and nose to the cheeks and chin. Examine the tissue if there are traces of oils and fats in it, then you have oily skin.

If the effects of fat are on specific areas then, your skin is a complex skin type.

But if there are no traces of fat on the tissue and it is completely dry with some white crusts, this is a sign of dry skin. While if the tissue is completely clean and free of fat and peels, you have a normal skin.

How to take care of different skin types?

Here are some tips for caring for different skin types for men or women. People with oily skin should use cleansers that do not contain oils or fat and also do not clog the pores of the skin.

Face cleaning

People with dry skin should use mild cleansers and not soap twice a day. And people with complex skin should use cleansers that do not dry the skin twice a day.
