Oily: If your skin has shiny appearance and rough texture then you may be having an oily skin. The problem that you most commonly face is of enlarged pores, pimples, redness and inflammation. This problem is mainly caused because of high sebum production which needs to be regulated. So while picking any skincare product look for ingredients like eucalyptus, clove, mint, calamine, camphor and also vitamin C for healing and rejuvenation of skin.
Dry: A dry skin often looks dull and flaky and feels strechy. There can be many reasons for dry skin which includes harsh chemicals, poor diet and chilly weather. The worst part of dry skin is that it may increase your aging process and can lead to premature aging. So one needs to add extra layer of moisture by using ingredients like glycerin, alpha hydroxy acid and hayluronic acid. These ingredients will help in adding moisture to your skin which will make it look soft and supple.
Sensitive: Men who have sensitive skin often feel itchy sensation in their skin when they apply any cosmetic product. Redness and inflammation are the common thing to spot in their face. Sensitive skin is caused by damage of protecive skin barrier and therefore one must look for a product which may help their skin in healing. So look for a product of neutral acidity of 5.5 pH level. Vitamin A, C and E are the next important thing to look for. Natural ingredients like alovera and green tea will help in soothing the irritated skin.
Combination: If you have a skin which is oily in T-zone i.e. forehead, nose and chin and dry in other parts of skin then you may be having combination skin. The reason is that T-zone has more sebaceous gland as compared to other parts of skin. So for combination skin you need to work on two things. Firstly, to regulate sebaceous gland and secondly to add moisture in your skin. Ingredients like clove, mint, camphor and alpha hydroxy acid must be in your search list.
Normal: Skin which is in its balanced state is called as normal skin. It is neither too oily nor too dry. Here also one needs to check ingredients before using them on skin. One should avoid product that can make skin either too drying or too oily.
