According to the skin dictionary, the term “normal” refers to having a well balanced skin, neither too oily or too dry. Normal skin texture is usually described as skin that is even and smooth with little sensitivity and no blemishes, dry patches and non-visible pores. This is because of the balance of water to oil ratio and a good blood circulation. If you are blessed with normal skin, focus on products and ingredients that maintain and enhance your perfect complexion. 


Dry skin is defined as skin that lacks the appropriate amount of hydration and tends to have a low balance of natural oils and lubricants. Dry skin can feel tight, rough and look dull. Environmental factors, such as humidity and temperature, have a profound effect on the amount of water retained within the skin however one of the most common factors causing dryness is frequent application of harsh chemicals. The best treatment for dry skin is to use ingredients that help the skin retain moisture. 


Combination skin is the most common skin type. With combination skin, certain areas of the skin tends to get oily while other areas are either dry or normal, which can fluctuate between seasons. The oilier parts of the skin are caused by sebum overproduction and the dry areas are caused by sebum deficiency. It is extremely common in combination skin types to get oiler around the T-zone area, and with excess sebum causing build up, leading to enlarged and clogged pores. If you are in a constant battle with shiny/clogged pores, the best treatment is to find products that can help balance hydration levels of the skin, with a focus on visibly shrinking pore size. 


Oily skin is defined as those who tend to over produce oil or as you know it sebum. Although sebum is key for keeping the skin healthy, too much sebum can cause skin imperfections. It can make your skin more prone to all forms of acne including blemishes, whiteheads and blackheads. The causes of oily skin is mainly due to genetics and hormones, factors that we can’t permanently change. However, the key is to take steps to manage and control oily skin which requires a lifestyle change and a consistent skin care regime that works and we can stick to it!
