What does Dry skin look like?

  • Flaky and Rough
  • May show more wrinkles and fine lines
  • Is itchy and easily irritated
  • Is very dehydrated

What is Dry Skin?

Dry skin produces fewer natural oils. This can make it appear dull and rough, flaky, or even scaly. It usually feels tight or less elastic, is dehydrated, and may have more visible fine lines. It may also become itchy or irritated.

Try avoiding long, hot showers. Also, try moisturising multiple times per day, and using fragrance-free and alcohol-free skincare products for dry skin types.

What does Normal skin look like?
  • Balanced Skin. Not too dry or too oily.

What is Normal Skin?

Normal skin is well-balanced, not overly dry or overly oily. Normal skin has small pores, a smooth skin texture, and is less prone to sensitivity and blemishes.

However, even if normal skin has no big issues, it still needs proper skincare to look and feel its best. The ideal normal skincare routine keeps your skin hydrated by locking in moisture and supporting your skin's protective barrier.

What does Oily skin look like?

  • Shiny and greasy appearance.
  • Very large and obvious pores.
  • Black heads and occasional/ persistent pimples.
  • Thick looking skin.

What is Oily Skin?

Oily skin happens when the sebaceous glands in the skin produce an excessive amount of sebum. Sebum is a waxy, oily substance that moisturizes and protects the skin. This may be caused by dirt or hormonal fluctuations.

Washing your face regularly with gentle, scent-free cleansers can help reduce the oil on the skin. Avoid using loofas or rough wash cloths to avoid stimulating the skin to make more oil.

What is Sensitive Skin?
