Zali’s Ultimate Guide to Skin Types

1. Oily skin

As the name suggests, this skin type refers to excessively oily skin. Common oily areas include the t-zone (forehead, chin, and nose). Oily skin usually looks shiny and feels greasy. Due to overactive sebum glands, this skin type is prone to acne, breakouts, and blemishes.

2. Dry skin

Dry skin type is characterized by rough, flaky, scaly, irritated, or itchy skin that looks and feels extremely dehydrated at most times.

3. Normal skin

 Normal skin is properly balanced skin. It’s not too oily or dry. If you’ve normal skin, you may not be prone to flakiness (associated with dry skin) or breakouts (associated with oily skin). People with normal skin are blessed with a perfectly balanced t-zone.

4. Sensitive skin

This skin type can vary from person to person, but some of the most common traits include dryness, irritation, and redness. Many times, signs of sensitive skin may not be visible at all, but sensitive skin may still feel irritated and painful. 

5. Combination skin 

The combination skin is a mix of both oily and dry skin -with some areas that are too oily and others too dry. For instance, this skin type is generally oily on areas like the nose, chin, and forehead, but it appears normal or dry on the cheeks.
