How to determine the type of skin?
Let’s try to figure out how to determine your skin type. What is it for? I think that the answer to this question will give each of you, without hesitation and unmistakably. Proper care for your skin type is necessary for us so that we can, at a minimum, like ourselves and, naturally, those around us.
After all, the standard of female beauty is the external state of the skin, which immediately reflects the internal. The skin of the face is: – normal; – fat; – dry; – combined (mixed); – sensitive. I want to give some simple tips on how to correctly determine the type of skin of my face, because, unfortunately, not everyone knows this, and this leads to improper care and deterioration of the appearance of the face. Why is an appointment with a beautician is recommended to come, after washing in 2−3 hours? Because during this time, natural fatty grease and moisture are produced, and their amount affects the skin type. To determine the type of skin by yourself, it is enough to wash and 2-3 hours after washing, wet the face with a tissue or attach a mirror.
An oily surface that impresses will indicate that you have oily skin. If we talk about the combined, then it will touch the T-zone: forehead, nose, chin. But if there are no traces, then the skin will be either normal or dry. Normal skin after washing will not feel any discomfort. It is elastic, fresh, elastic, smooth matte pink color without greasy luster, smooth to the touch, pores are almost invisible. This type of skin is very rare, and many people dream about it. Although oily skin has its advantages, since the excess fat secreted creates a protective film, which, in turn, does not allow drying of the skin, but it is still quite problematic and requires certain care. Its main signs are oily shine, enlarged and clogged pores, increased secretion of the sebaceous glands and a tendency to various inflammations and rashes. The enlarged pores on the face, unfortunately, give oily skin a stale and dirty look. These are the main visible signs of oily skin. The same characteristics can be attributed to the combination skin, but not on all its parts. Combined (mixed) skin differs from oily skin only in that its individual areas, such as the contour around the eyes and cheeks, often have dry skin and are rarely normal, but the forehead, nose and chin have a characteristic oily sheen. Here you will need to use cosmetics for two types of skin, depending on the areas and the type of skin. Dry skin is quite problematic, it is difficult to determine it only by external signs, but it is possible. At a young age, dry skin type looks delicate, matte and without visible pores, but to the touch it remains fairly thin and not elastic. After washing, the feeling of tightness and peeling is impossible not to feel and not notice if you have dry skin. It is necessary to care for it when these first visible signs appear, because, due to the lack of proper moisturizing, it is too susceptible to bad environmental influences and the first wrinkles appear too early.
Sensitive facial skin, perhaps, of all – the most delicate. It can be both dry and oily. The first visible signs: this type of skin instantly reacts to any changes, be it wind, sun, frost, air temperature and any climatic changes, poor-quality cosmetics and improper care. The impact of these and many other factors leads to a violation of the lipid layer of the skin, and it is not able to retain moisture, synthesize fat, which leads to a violation of the epidermal barrier. The response is peeling, tightness, itching, redness, skin rash. Well, I told you about the main types of facial skin, each of them needs its own correct approach and attention. Be beautiful!
