Easy Guide To Identify Your Skin Type

How To Determine Your Skin Type

It is very important to know your skin type before investing in skin care products as wrong products can harm the skin and also lead to many skin problems.

Here Are 5 Skin Types Men Should Know To Find The Right Product

Oily Skin

Oily skin naturally produces excess sebum i.e. too much oil. Signs of an oily skin include frequent blemishes, visible pores and shiny skin all over. Remedies for oily skin focus on controlling oil and promoting clearer pores in order to reduce the risk of blemishes.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is completely opposite to oily skin. Skin doesn’t get enough sebum to keep it hydrated. Men with dry skin don’t have visible pores and break out rarely, if at all. Dry skin men have to struggle with roughness, tightness, itching and flaking. Regimens for dry skin need to increase moisture levels in the tissue to ease signs of dryness.

Combination Skin

Combination skin as the name itself suggest is a type with a mixture of oily as well as dry skin. Men having combination skin usually produce too much oil along nose, chin and forehead leaving rest of the area dry. Regimens should work to balance oil levels across the skin while addressing signs of dryness and oiliness where they occur on the face.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin is prone to reactions immediately if exposed to certain ingredients. If your skin ever stings, gets red, itches, or develops rashes by the use of shaving products or skin care, you have sensitive skin. It’s important for men to note that sensitive skin can also be oily, dry or combination. A sensitive skin care regimen should calm inflammation when reactions occur, protect the skin from harsh ingredients and address any signs of oiliness or dryness.

Normal Skin

Normal skin produces just enough oil all over the face and is not sensitive to skin care products. If your skin is normal, you don’t fall into any of the categories described above. A daily routine for normal skin should emphasis on maintaining right oil production rates to keep skin from becoming dry or oily.
