Normale Skin

Normal skin has an even tone, soft, a smooth texture, no visible pores or blemishes, and no greasy patches or flaky areas. This type of skin has a clear, fine-textured, supple and smooth surface which is neither greasy nor dry. It glows with an inner health which stems from good blood circulation and excellent health. 
There may be occasional pimples in women just before menstruation due to increased hormonal activity, which makes the sebaceous glands overactive. Acne is, however, not a problem for people with normal skin. It is beautiful, but it needs care if it is to last. Neglect can lead to signs of aging and wrinkling.


Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Dry skin has a low level of sebum and can be prone to sensitivity. The skin has a parched look caused by its inability to retain moisture. It usually feels "tight" and uncomfortable after washing unless some type of moisturizer or skin cream is applied. Chapping and cracking are signs of extremely dry, dehydrated skin. Dryness is exacerbated by wind, extremes of temperature and air-conditioning, all of which cause the skin to flake, chap and feel tight. This type of skin is tightly drawn over bones. It looks dull, especially on the cheeks and around the eyes. There may be tiny expression lines on these spots and at the comers of the mouth. 


Combination Skin

Combination skin is a combination of both oily and dry skin. There is a greasy center panel consisting of nose, forehead and chin and a dry panel consisting of cheeks, mouth and the areas around the eyes. This type of skin is very common, and it should be treated as if it were two different types of skin.

Oily Skin
Oily skin is shiny, thick and dull colored. Often a chronically oily skin has coarse pores and pimples and other embarrassing blemishes. It is prone to blackheads. In this type of skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed. The oil oozes and gives the skin a greasy shine. The pores are enlarged and the skin has a coarse look. The cause are Heredity , diet, hormone levels, pregnancy, birth control pills, cosmetics you use, humidity and hot weather. Because of the hormonal shifts of adolescence, oily skin is common in teenagers, but it can occur at any age. In general, skin tends to become dryer with age. The flow of sebum or oil increases during adolescence and starts decreasing with age. During pregnancy and menopause, hormonal imbalances can also upset the oil balance and increase the activity of sebaceous glands. 


Dull Skin

The cause of dull skin usually comes from smoking, drinking dehydrative drinks such as coffee, black tea or pop and even lack of exercise and illness have a role. Characteristics of this skin type include poor circulation which leads to dull grey tones that look dusty. You can treat this by oxygenating, hydrating, massaging, stimulating and re-texturizing. 


Hyperpigmented Skin

Hyperpigmentation is a type of skin darkening that occurs when certain skin cells release more pigment (dark color). It is a darkening of the skin in patches, or all over. The cause are more often when  skin has undergone some trauma that causes inflammation as acne,burns, chemical peel,laser treatments, sunoverexposure, pregnancy …. Sometimes the marks go away on their own, but more often the fading process can take more time as month or years.


Mature Skin

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity, becomes more fragile and appears thin and dull. Wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and growths, such as skin tags and warts, can also become more common. Changes in your skin are a natural part of aging, but you may be looking for ways to slow this process and keep your skin looking young and healthy.
