Understanding what your skin type is should be your first step in identifying the skincare products and treatments required to keep your skin healthy and in proper function.
This blog post helps you men out there as a guide to know your skin type so that you can develop your personal skincare routine to keep it in optimal condition.
Normally the skin secretes natural oils (called as Sebum) to keep itself moisturized and healthy. For people with oily skin, there is an excess production of these natural oils, which forms a thin layer of oil over the skin throughout the day.
The production of sebum in men is double than that of women. The pores are larger and sebaceous glands are more active in men than women. Therefore this type of skin is the most common one in men compared to women.
The less production of sebum causes this skin type. As a result, the skin lacks the natural moisturizing factors that help in water retention of your skin. Certain body parts are more prone to dry skin such as hands, legs, palm and ankle of your feet.
Combination skin type is a mix of oily and dry skin in different areas on your face. It is the most common skin type and is often mistaken for oily skin.
People with combination skin will have oily skin in the T-Zone, covering their forehead, nose and chin. There is an excess production of sebum in this region. The cheeks, mouth and eyes are dry due to lack of sebum secretion and water retention in these regions.
If you are still not sure of your skin type then consult a dermatologist to help you with your concerns.
