Different Skin Types and How to Care for Them

Welcome back to the Beauty It Is blog. In our blog post today, we are going to cover a topic that is extremely important to have an understanding of, especially if you’re hoping to properly care for and achieve, great skin. We are going to review the different types of skin and what defines that skin type so that you can move forward using the right products and skin care regimen.

Normal Skin

This is the skin that most of us wish that we had because it isn’t heavy on the oily or dry side of the spectrum. Normal skin has a healthy circulation of blood throughout the face that allows for soft, smooth skin. Because of the blood flow, there is usually an even skin tone throughout the face. Aside from that, because circulation is strong, there will rarely be any trace of oil on the skin, or any dry, irritated skin to care for.

Oily Skin

One of the biggest ways to recognize that you have oily skin is through the patches of skin that are heavy in facial oil. Most commonly, you can find these oily patches of skin on your forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. The pores for this skin type are usually hereditary and are caused by things like diet, exercise levels, stress, hormones, and any care regimens that are not designed to care for this skin type. If you have oily skin, it is incredibly important to recognize what type of products you’re using and how often you’re caring for your skin, in order for it to balance out and look great. This is something that we will definitely be covering in later blog posts.

Dry Skin

On the other spectrum from oily skin, is dry skin. While oily skin is the result of having too much facial oil produced through the pores, dry skin is the result of too little oil being produced. When you have dry skin, your skin will also often result in flaky pieces of skin that show where the extra sensitive, dry skin is. This skin type requires extra moisturizing in order to maintain a healthy look, but also in order to maintain comfort. Dry skin can often result in a painful feeling because of how cracked dry skin can become.

Combination Skin

When you have both patches of oily skin and skin that requires extra moisture, you need to be extremely specific with the types of products that you’re using. More often than not, this type of skin produces more oil around the nose, forehead and chin area, but is dry around the cheeks mouth and eyes. The products that you use and how you use them are going to determine what your skin looks and feels like, so it’s absolutely great if you recognize this is your skin type sooner than later.

In our next blog post, we will cover a few of the care techniques and products that can produce the healthiest, best-looking skin for these various skin types.
