There are five main skin types, and knowing yours can help you to get the best care. Let’s take a closer look at normal, sensitive, dry, oily, and combination skin types. We’ll provide some quick tips for each.

Normal Skin – Don’t confuse normal with common. Most people will fall into one of the other categories. If you have normal skin, you’re lucky. Your skin isn’t too oily or too dry. The texture is normal, and you don’t require special care. All you have to do is keep up with a regular maintenance routine to keep your skin looking its best.

Sensitive Skin – Sensitive skin doesn’t necessarily require extra care. It just means your skin is more likely to react to external stimuli. As a result, when your skin does need care, you need to use the right products. Avoid artificial fragrances in your skincare products, for example, and stick to gentle treatments.

Dry Skin – Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize! You need to keep your skin hydrated in order to avoid flaking, cracking, or premature aging. You can also enjoy hydrating facials and other treatments for dry skin.

Oily Skin – If your skin is too oily, it can result in acne problems and even lead to scarring. Additionally, you need to be careful not to dry the skin out too much with your skincare routine. The best thing to do is to use products and treatments that combat dry skin while still taking advantage of a quality moisturizer once a day.

Combination Skin – Someone with combination skin is going to experience some issues with dry skin and some with oily skin. Again, you’ll have to walk a line between combating the oils without drying your skin out. In this case, you may require even more moisturizing as well as facial treatments that can combat acne without drying out the skin.
