- Oily Skin:
An Oily skin is one in which the pores are big and are very visible and sometimes they maybe clogged. The face has a shiny look. After sometime the oil reappears if the skin is not washed. Moisturizer is not required.
- Combination Skin:
A Combination skin is the one in which the lisone is the area of the nose and the skin around it is oily and the rest of the skin is normal or dry. After washing the lisone feels oily and certain areas appear dry and stretchy.
- Sensitive Skin:
Sensitive skin is not a skin type it is a condition. It is caused due to various factors like environmental factors, hormones or infections on the skin which cause skin irritation and lead to excessive oil or begin to dehydration, flaking redness itching. People with sensitive skin are unable to tolerate most skin products and get any skin treatments done and everything reacts very easily on their skin.
