When living in a faster is better world, it’s sometimes hard to take care of yourself properly; this can be particularly evident when it comes to our skin care, or lack thereof.

Knowing your skin type can help you quickly identify what types of health care your skin demands, allowing you to properly take care of it and not shrink away from the dreaded mirror.

There are four different skin types: normal, oily, dry, and combination.

• Normal Skin isn’t too oily or dry and has very few blemishes, acne, or pimples; it is the most desired skin type, so if you have it, consider yourself lucky!

• Oily Skin is known by a shiny complexion and frequent blemishes, acne, and pimples. Additional oil can be seen particularly around the T-zone areas, which include the nose, forehead, and chin.

• Dry Skin feels tough and tight throughout the day and can show visible peeling. Unfortunately, this skin type is mostly caused by genetics.

• Combination Skin is as it sounds – it is a combination of normal and oily skin. People with combination skin will generally find excess oil only in their T-zone areas with the rest of their skin appearing smooth, clear, and moisturized.
