SHOP BY SKIN TYPE
Your skin can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). Many people have this type. It can also be oily and dry in different locations, but if you notice two or more different textures on your face, it is a sign that you have combination skin.
Combination skin can have:
• Pores that look larger than normal
• Shiny skin
Your skin can crack, peel, or become itchy, irritated, or inflamed. If it’s very dry, it can become rough and scaly. Exposure to dry weather conditions, hot water, and certain chemicals can cause your skin to dry out.
You may have:
• Almost invisible pores
• Dull, rough complexion
• Red patches
• Your skin is less elastic
• More visible lines
Oiliness can change depending upon the time of year or the weather. Breakouts are also more likely because the sebum mixes with dead skin cells and gets stuck in your pores.
The causes of oily skin include genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors
Things that can cause or worsen it include:
• Puberty or other hormonal imbalances
• Heat or too much humidity
