Skin can be divided into
various types according to its texture. It is essential to know the various
types of skin, so that its treatment can be done accordingly.

with a supple and smooth surface. It has a proper balance between oil and
moisture contents and is therefore moist and neither greasy nor dry. It
looks clear and does not develop spots and blemishes. The pores of the skin
are fine and barely visible. It reflects good health and needs gentle
Dry skin has a dry parched
appearance and has a tendency to flake easily. It is prone to
wrinkles and lines. It is due to the inability to retain
moisture as well as the insufficient production of sebum by the sebaceous
glands. Dry skin often has problems in cold
weather and ages faster than normal or oily skin. Constant
protection is very important. It needs a moisturizer during the day and a good
cream at night.
This type of skin is caused by
the over secretion of sebum making the skin surface oily. The excess oil on
the surface of the skin attracts dirt and dust from the environment. oily
skin is also prone to black heads, white heads, spots,
pimples and such skin will never be clear. This type of skin
needs to be cleansed thoroughly.
of skin is very common. As the name suggests, it is a combination of both oily
and dry skin with certain areas of the face oily and the rest dry. Usually
there is a Central greasy panel consisting of the forehead, nose and chin
and a dry panel consisting of cheeks and the areas around the eyes and mouth.
The greasy central panel is referred to as T - Zone. In such cases, each part
of the face should be treated accordingly - the dry areas as for dry skin and
the central panel as for oily skin.
This type of skin has a fine
texture and is very sensitive to changes in the climate. They show the
disadvantage of bleaching, Waxing, threading etc.
The skin is
subject to various problems - blemishes, infections and growth due to internal
or external causes. Some of the skin disorders are
Lesion - Change in tissue formation.
Papule - A firm raised lesion
Pustule - Similar to papule but contains puss.
Seborrhea - Excessive secretion of disturbed
quantity of sebum is collected upon the skin in the form of oily coating. This
is known as seborrhea. Some times a burning sensation is felt
White heads - These are caused by pores getting
clogged with hardened oil. They therefore show up as tiny white pearly lumps
beneath the surface of the skin. They usually form on oily skin.
Black heads -The pores are open and clogged sebum
is exposed to the air. Oxidation takes place turning it black in color.
Acne - This is one of the most common skin
disorders which primarily affects the adolescents as it can be caused by
increase of sex hormones which takes place during puberty. This imbalance of
sex hormones causes the sebaceous glands to secrete more sebum (Sebum is a
semi-fluid oily substance which lubricates the skin). The pores of the skin
enlarge and get blocked with hardened sebum. This result in black heads and
pimples. Some of these develop into pustule which rupture and spread
infection. Acne should never be neglected as it causes extensive scarring.
