Each skin has specific characteristics and needs.
Therefore, before choosing a beauty product , be it cosmetics or makeup , you must take into account what your skin is like.
In case you have doubts, we review the different types of skin .
Balanced skin , not oily, not dry or prone to blemishes, looks good, is hydrated and luminous, with an even tone and small pores.
It is rare in adults, but it is more common in children. Also in people who take care of themselves and have a good diet and good beauty care (… and a good genetic inheritance, of course…).
Dry skin is skin that lacks hydration or does not retain it easily.
They have less fat than normal skin and, therefore, are more unprotected against external aggressions. This causes its appearance to be somewhat duller and matte.
They do not usually have blemishes or pimples, but they are sensitive to certain facial care products, such as some cleansers or alcohol soaps, which dry out the skin more.
Oily skin, as its own adjective indicates, has an excess of fat , especially in the so-called "T zone". They tend to be thicker and have enlarged pores . They can be prone to acne and blemishes due to increased sebum secretion and clogged pores (blackheads), making them look duller. Contrary to what you may think, oily skin also dehydrates, so you cannot do without oil-free moisturizers.
Combination skin would be a hybrid between oily and normal skin. It is prone to shine in the T zone (chin, nose and forehead), on the other hand, the rest of the face can even dry out.
Type of skin that is easily irritated or dry , that reacts to certain cosmetic components or external agents with the appearance of redness, dryness, pimples, ... Due to this degree of reaction, it is advisable to first try the products in different areas (such as the arm) to check whether or not it is suitable for the skin.
