Is generally called "baby skin." It is the ideal skin and as such, so rare. It looks smooth, has medium thickness and a healthy, vibrant appearance. Pores are slightly noticeable. Has an excellent percentage of moisture and upon contact is gentle and well balanced.
Has a very subtle look with pores that are hardly visible, almost nonexistent. Is sensitive to the environmental conditions, is dull, lacks elasticity, and has a tendency to flake. It has the feeling of “pulling” especially after cleansing. The sebaceous glands are less active. The dry skin easily loses its moisture through evaporation, cracks and has the tendency to easily form expression lines which, relatively early, become wrinkles.
Sensitive skin is thin, fragile, and vulnerable to atmospheric conditions (cold, sun, wind, heat, dust, pollution, temperature). It is transparent, to the extent that visible capillary vessels appear close to the skin’s surface around the area of cheeks, nose, and chin (couperose). Is often accompanied by redness and/or flushing, especially on the cheeks, nose fins, and sometimes on the chin. In cases of allergic reaction intense irritation, rashes and itchiness can present themselves. Nothing, apart from the special products intended for sensitive, can alleviate this type of skin and therapy must begin at the very first signs / symptoms.
Oily skin is tough, resilient, and coarse (like the skin of an orange). It has a shiny appearance, especially around the T zone, following cleansing. Has enlarged, visible pores, often filled with sebum particularly around the nose, chin and forehead. It has elasticity, is gentle and smooth to the touch. Dehydrates easily due to the use of harsh astringent products and because of enlarged and extended pores where moisture is not sustained. Blackheads and whiteheads are evident. From the age of 13+ it has the tendency of producing spots due to overactive sebaceous glands. When pore openings are clogged with accumulated sebum, small bumps appear, generally known as whiteheads or blackheads, due to oxidation. When these residues become inflamed, the condition is described as acne.
It is dull, melancholic, without vitality, rumpled and wrinkles have already developed. It is usually dehydrated and is in general, age-worn skin. After the age of 40, shows early signs of ageing such as expression lines and wrinkles around the eye and mouth areas, dehydration, atony, and slack. Moderate to substantial sun damage can provoke the skin, appearing as pigmentation spots, wrinkles, and weakened skin tone. Only systematic care with products rich in hydrating elements, nutrients and rejuvenating ingredients can prolong its ageing process.
