Skin Types and Products
There are basically 5 types of skin and the entire market has been divided into 5 ranges based on the skin types:
1. Oily Skin
Oily skin type is caused by excess production of facial oils from the sebaceous glands causing the skin to be oily. This can be indicated by the excess presence of oil, shine, and accumulation of dirt and grease on the facial skin, especially the T-zone.
2. Dry Skin
Dry skin is the lack of facial oils that are produced by the sebaceous glands making the skin feel and look dry to appearance. Dry skin is indicated by the absence of natural moisture, a feeling of dryness, and a stretchy sensation on the skin.
3. Combination Skin
Combination skin is one of the problematic skin types when some areas of the face have excess moisture due to oil secretion while the rest of the areas have very little oil secretion on the face causing it to feel too dry and stretchy.
4. Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin is also a problematic skin condition where the skin is overly reactive to any kind of product. The skin may develop redness, rashes, and allergies and is also very sensitive to sunlight and cosmetic or skincare products.
5. Acne-Prone Skin
Acne-Prone skin is a condition of skin type which is very prone to getting frequent acne attacks of any kind – whiteheads, blackheads, nodules, pustules, or cysts. Acne-prone skin requires a special range of products as their skin is very easily irritated.
