Different types of skin

Hi, friends today I will talk about the types of skin in detail.
We have known about the skin types. They are,
Normal skin
Oily skin
Dry skin
Combination skin

---Normal skin---
This skin type is neither oily nor dry. It has a soft velvety texture. its glows under its translucent surface. Beautiful as it is, it need care, if it is to last.
People with normal skins start showing signs of age and wrinkling sooner than others, if they tend to neglect their skins.
Daily cleansing toning & nourishing is the best care for normal skin.
---Oily skin--

in this kind of skins, the oil producing glands are overactive. They produce more oil than needed, which giving the skin greasy shines. The pores are enlarged & the skin has a course look. This type skin faces problems of blackheads, pimples & acne.
About its care, oily skin needs very special cleansing to keep the pores unclogged. The flow of sebum increases during adolescence and starts decreasing with age. At other times of life, like pregnancy and meno-pause can also upset the oil balance and increase oil gland activity.
---Dry skin---
Dry skin looks fine textured transparent, patchy and fragile. If you have a dry skin, your skin lacks both sebum and moisture. There may be tiny expression lines. It flacks and chaps easily.
There are many factors, which effect dry skins and make them even more dry. Washing with soap and water not only removes grime but also the natural oils that protect the skin. Exposure to the sun, heaters and air conditioners also take dry skin’s oil.
This skin types need attention by way of products which supply emollients & moisture. A moisturizer increases the water content of the outer layers of skin, giving it a soft, moist look.
--Combination skin—
Combination means mix of skin types. This type of skin has a oily area, while the rest is dry or normal.
The forehead, nose and chin, the T-zone, may be oily and the rest dry.
This types of skin are very common and are one of the most frequently misunderstood and mistreated skins. Its both dry and oily areas need moisturizing.
Like oily skin, the oily panel may be prone to unappealing clusters of enlarged pores and blackheads. Pay special attention to cleansing and use a toner or skin tonic to tone up the skin.
We will discuss about other types of skin like sensitive skin, hydrated skin and of course aging skin. So be happy and enjoy…
