Welche Hauttypen gibt es?

There are four basic skin types, but they can be further broken down based on specific characteristics. Once the main skin type is determined, we determine the sensitivity level of the skin. This practice reveals the individual skin type. 

NORMAL

Normal skin is characterized by an evenly distributed pore size. This skin type is relatively rare. Normal skin typically has:

 

  • No or only a few imperfections

  • No particular sensitivity

  • Barely visible pores

  • A radiant complexion

OILY

Oily skin is characterized by large visible pores all over the face. Oily skin typically has the following characteristics:

 

  • Feels oily, appears shiny throughout the day

  • Large visible pores in the T-zone and on the cheeks

  • Often clogged pores, acne, or both

DRY

Dry skin is characterized by little to no oil production.  Dry skin typically has:

 

  • Little to no visible pores

  • Responds quickly in the form of irritation and redness

  • Feels tight

  • May itch

  • Rarely experiences clogged pores

COMBINATION

Combination skin is a mix of oily and dry skin in different areas. This is the most common skin type. Combination skin typically has:

 

  • Oily T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) 

  • Enlarged pores in the T-zone, possibly also impurities

  • Smaller pores on the cheeks

  • Dry cheeks

WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO KNOW MY SKIN TYPE?

Knowing your skin type is the most important step in finding the perfect skin care routine for your skin. A misdiagnosis of your skin type can make the difference in the results you get. Unfortunately, one often confuses a skin condition with a skin type. This can be a huge mistake in choosing the right skin care product. For example, someone might have acne and experience a dry, tense feeling. To treat this, they look for a product that is very moisturizing in the hopes that this will solve the problem. In reality, it is likely dehydrated, a condition in which the skin lacks water, not oil. Now that you have a heavy moisturizer on your skin, it becomes too much for your oily skin type and creates an ideal habitat for acne to thrive!

 

This is just one example of the importance of understanding what your skin type is. Don't worry, we have provided you with our simple online skin analysis. Simply answer a few questions and immediatly after we will tell you your exact skin type and put together the perfect skin care routine to get your skin in tip-top shape!

HOW ARE THE SKIN TYPES FURTHER CLASSIFIED?

The skin type analysis is based on the four basic types of skin and is also divided into two sub-types, sensitive and non-sensitive. Sensitive skin is common and usually:

 

  • Appears thin and turns red slightly

  • Experiences stinging or tingling sensations frequently

  • Reacts easily to products

 

Any skin type can have sensitive skin and it is important to be aware of this in order to limit further skin irritation.
