As yesterdays post on dry skin was a real popular post I thought I would let you all take charge of today’s post , let’s make it more interactive !

Below I have listed the 4 main skin types and next weekend I will cover an entire post on one that is not covered and talked about enough in my opinion `Menopausal Skin` this is a skin type that requires lots of TLC and its own post as there are so many changes this skin type goes through (the joys of womanhood!)

“I would like you all to comment and share your skin type and concerns and let me help you all get on the road to radiant skin”!

Dry Skin: 

Dry skin can feel tight and may have visible flaking. It is often delicate, easily irritated, and usually sensitive to cold weather. Dry skin has a matte finish with no sheen and can have a rough feel to it. Many people think that they have dry skin when they actually have a superficial dry condition. Superficial dryness is caused by exposure to the sun, sea, air, wind, or pollutants. It is also caused by improper skin-care habits such as using soap as a cleanser or not using a moisturizer for protection. The symptoms of certain skin diseases such as eczema, mild psoriasis, or dermatitis are sometimes mistaken for dry skin.

Combination Skin:

Combination skin refers to skin with two or more distinctly different characteristics on different parts of the face. The most common combination skin is oily in certain areas and then dry or normal in the other areas. Usually, the “T-zone” (forehead, nose, and chin) is oily and the cheeks and around the eyes are normal or dry. Ninety-five percent of combination skin types will fit this description. The  other five percent can have a variety of combinations such as a blemished forehead, dry cheeks and normal everywhere else, or the skin could be normal in the “T-zone” and dry everywhere else.

Oily Skin:

Oily skin has a shiny appearance and is usually thicker, firmer, and less sensitive than the other types. The pores are visibly more noticeable than in other skin types and are medium to large in size. There is a tendency for recurring clogged pores, blackheads, Whitehead’s, blemishes and enlarged pores.

Normal Skin:

Normal skin is the goal of every skin care program. Yet, it may be that the only truly normal skin is that of a child. Normal skin is not too oily or dry and blemishes are uncommon. Normal skin’s appearance is moist, plump and dewy. The pores are small to medium in size. The skin is of medium thickness and has an even tone. Normal skin is soft, smooth and firm with good elasticity.

I think everyone would agree we all wish we had the latter of these skin types, and the truth is we can given the right skin care routine and sticking to it. Once you have determined which of these skin types you are it’s the first step to great skin and the second step comes with great products and a healthier lifestyle!

I look forward to a Q & A with you all 😎
