Understanding Your Skin Type

Each person is different. We each have unique physiologies, and our bodies tend to react to things differently. There are four main types of skin: normal skin, oily skin, dry skin, and combination. Depending on which skin type you have, you will need a different approach to skincare. Seoul Mamas will help you understand your skin and take care of it in just the right way!

Normal Skin

Normal skin is often referred to as “well-balanced” skin. If you have a normal skin type, you will rarely suffer from acne, facial sensitivity, or blotchy complexion. A normal skin type means you have an even amount of oil and dryness, so you don’t typically lean one way or the other.

Often, normal skin types are not as sensitive to environment and stress levels since the skin is balanced and healthy, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t actively care for your skin. Make sure you wash your face regularly to remove dirt and bacteria, using the occasional face mask for rejuvenation. Always use a facial moisturizer with SPF for protection, and to keep your skin soft and hydrated.

Oily Skin

Oily skin can be troublesome because it can take extra work to maintain a healthy and beautiful complexion. With oily skin, it is normal to have enlarged pores, a thick complexion, and acne breakouts. The oiliness in your pores may change depending on stress, puberty, hormones, and temperature variation.

To clean your skin correctly, use a gentle cleanser every day, preferably one that targets oily skin. Don’t pop or irritate acne, and keep your hands away from your face. If you continue to have problems with oily skin, look for oil-absorbent pads and face masks for oily skin!

Dry Skin

Dry skin can be challenging to tackle. Dry skin is unable to produce enough sebum (oil) to maintain a healthy complexion. Pores have a difficult time retaining moisture, so your skin will quickly become dried out without proper care. Dry skin usually appears to have a rough texture, red patches, and visible wrinkle lines, which can take a toll on your complexion. Your skin can feel itchy and tight.

Look for face masks created for dry skin. The right face mask will rejuvenate your skin, leaving a balanced and healthy complexion. Keep your skin hydrated with a quality facial moisturizer.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is just how it sounds, a combination of dry and oily areas. Typically the T-zone gets oily, which is the area above your eyebrows and down to your nose and chin (forming the letter “T”). The cheeks and hairline can be normal skin or dry.

For this type of skin, focus on products made for combination skin, like masks and cleansers. You may have to find separate products to use on the dry and oily areas to balance them out.
