Normal Skin, Oily Skin or Combination Skin?

People often ask us how we define skin types. Your facial skin is type is determined by how much or how little oil your skin produces and diet, stress, hormones and genes all play their part. Below is a general guide as to what each skin type looks like.

Normal Skin

Normal skin looks soft, moist and plump and has a healthy looking glow and colour. The skin surface is fine in texture and there are no open pores or added shine.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is often a hereditary condition that is caused by over active sebaceous glands. It is quite easy to recognise as your skin will have more of a shiny appearance and you may also have enlarged pores and be prone to blackheads and breakouts. One of the great things about oily skin is that it can sometimes age better than dry skin as the oils keep skin plump allowing fewer wrinkles to form.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is more often than not usually two or more different skin types combined – You may have a slightly oily T-zone and dryer cheeks with a few dry spots here and there. You may also have larger pores on your checks and possibly forehead. Combinations skin has a smooth and even texture with good circulation.

Here at Savar we feel it’s always good to remember to get the most out of your natural skincare products try looking for products that are specifically formulated for your skin type and enjoy!
