Skin Types

When I reached puberty my face is oily. Pimples easily broke out and it's not nice to see. Thankfully, my pimples don't broke out through out my face instead I only have one or two pimples but it always broke out at the tip of my nose!! Of all places???!!
Close to ninety percent of adults have a combination of dry and oily skin. This makes it more challenging to treat and manage.

Dry Skin
           Facial skin feels tight after washing. Requires moisturizers more often during cold weather. Skin surface is rough and poreless. Small lines can be found around the mouth and the eye area.

Oily Skin
            Enlarged pores and a shiny, oily face with the presence of blackheads, whiteheads and occasional pimples. Pimples on shoulders and back.

            The T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) is shiny and oily but the other parts, like the cheeks, eye area, throat, are dry.

Sensitive Skin
             Skin that feels itchy, turns red and has a tendency to blotchiness, is sensitive. So extra care must be given your complexion.

Dehydrated Skin
             Itchy, flaky, cracked and papery. Your skin cannot retain its natural moisture. It is so dry that it actually smarts.

Your dermatologists can analyze your skin type and draw up a skin regimen for you. So when  are you going to visit your dermatologist I think it's about time to do it.
