Here is some useful advice for your skin…


This type of skin is characterized by thick, shiny, oily skin cutis due to excessive production of sebum, yet sometimes dehydrated. Pores are dilated and other typical features are blackheads, acne, comedones and dull complexion. This condition is extremely frequent in teenagers, but it may occur also with mature skins as a result of excessive exposure to sun, pollution and wrong skincare.


Normal skin has no evident problems. It is well hydrated and shows a nice complexion. However, it may happen that, due to some causes such as pollution, stress and exposure to UV rays, so-called “normal skin” suffers from oiliness and/or dryness and becomes a “combination” skin.. The latter is considered the most common type of skin. The face can be divided into two separated zones: well-known T zone (forehead, nose, chin), which tends to be oily and shiny with impurities and dilated pores, and cheeks, which often show dehydrated conditions of dry and red skin.


It is a type of skin characterized by thin texture, reduced elasticity and tone, and a dull complexion. The production of sebum and lipids is extremely low. It often suffers from redness and wrinkles are common due to scarce tone. As for dehydrated skin, it is not actually a skin type but a condition, often temporary and sporadic, caused by water shortage, which may also affect combination and oily skins. The major features of this skin are cracks, tightness and difficulty to absorb creams.


It is a fragile skin type that reacts to internal (genetic, hormone and stressful conditions) and external (wrong dietary habits, pollution and exposure to UV rays) factors with redness, burning sensation, irritation, itching and tightness. It is often accompanied by dryness and broken blood vessels. Sensitive skin is prone to blotches.


Starting from the age of 30, skin starts losing elasticity and tone, and becomes thinner. Dryness is one of the major features of mature skin and results in expression lines. Another frequent characteristic is hyperpigmentation: spots and darker areas appear on face, neck, chest and hands. Skin aging is affected by both genetic and environmental factors (exposure to UV rays, pollution, cigarette smoke and alcohol).
