5 Basic Skin Type: What is your Skin Type?


5 Basic Skin Type – what is your Skin Type?

Hello beauties 🙂

Today I am going to help you all with the most tricky question “what is your skin type?” well, we all want to give best care to our skin but without knowing the type of skin it is impossible to take care of it.


These days’ numbers of skin care products are available in market. Picking up a right product for your skin is important else it might be able to give opposite affects. All products are made for a particular type of skin thus in order to care for your skin, properly, it is important to first determine the type of skin you have.

There are 5 types of skin I’m going to review in this article: normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. Let’s take a look now!

Normal Skin

This is the least common skin type. It occurs in less than 20% of women. This skin is soft supple and smooth. It has a nice glow and never feels oily and dry. It is free of blemishes (except for the periodic blemishes).It has small pores and has a good balance of moisture. It has even skin texture and tone. If you have this skin type you should consider yourself lucky, but this does not mean that you shouldn’t take care of your skin.


Dry Skin

This type of skin has a matte uneven texture and it has a very thin top layer (looks slightly transparent). It lacks moisturizer and feels dry and stretchy especially after washing. It may have whiteheads and appear rough and flaky. This type of skin feels tight and can have premature lines and wrinkles, thus need a proper care.

Oily Skin

Oily skin produces excess of sebum and oil. It appears dull, sallow and shiny. The oiliness of skin reappears within hours of washing. It has large pores and tends to have pimples and black heads. The makeup usually gets absorbed quickly on oily skin.


Combination Skin

This is the most common skin type. It is the combination of two or more skin types. This type of skin is oily in the t-zone and rest of the face is dry. The t-zone includes nose, forehead, and chin. In this both skin require different skin care routine to restore them to balance.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is usually dry. It easily reacts to the products and may get irritated and flaky.
