Which Skin Type Do You Have?
Knowing your skin type
Do you know which skin type do you have? Well there are 5 broad types of skin - Normal, Dry, Oily , combination and sensitive skin type.
First of all it is important to understand that the great variety of skin types among us will limit science from accommodating every skin type with its own category.
The type of skin you have depends on the activity of the sebaceous, or oil producing glands.
The following results generally indicate your skin type as:
Normal Skin Type - If upon observation in the mirror there are no prominent areas of shine, your skin feels comfortable and there is no residue on the tissue.
Combination Skin Type - If upon observation in the mirror there are prominent areas of shine on your forehead, nose, and chin AND the tissue test also reveals residue for those areas but cheeks are normal.
Oily Skin Type - If upon observation in the mirror your entire face appears shiny and the tissue test reveals residue in all four zones.
Dry Skin Type - If upon observation in the mirror there are no areas of shine AND further to this, you can see and feel the presence of tight skin, possibly flaky skin AND there is not a trace of residue on the tissue. Also see sensitive skin
