How familiar are you with your skin? You may be thinking that you know what color your skin is, so what else is there to know? Well, there’s more to your skin than its color. In fact, each person has a specific skin type, and becoming familiar with the type of skin you have will help you care for it properly.

Specific skin types are more prevalent to particular skin challenges than others. And, to make matters even more interesting, your skin type can change as you age. What that means is that your skincare regimen will need to adjust as your skin changes. But before you can follow a skincare regimen, you need to know your skin type.

Dermatologists typically categorize the skin in terms of how oily, dry, or sensitive it is. Oil production and sensitivity generally are the most important factors in determining the type of skin treatment, sunscreen, and other products that you should be using.

Normal Skin Type

  • Few to no imperfections
  • No severe sensitivity
  • Barely visible pores
  • A healthy, radiant complexion

Oily Skin Type

  • Enlarged pores
  • Shiny complexion
  • Blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes

Combination Skin Type

  • Dry to normal skin on the cheeks
  • Oily skin in the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin)
  • Enlarged pores

Dry Skin Type

  • Almost invisible pores
  • Dull complexion
  • Rough, flaky, or red patches
  • Less elasticity and more visible lines

Sensitive Skin Type

  • Redness
  • Burning
  • Itchy patches
  • Excessive dryness in some areas

Knowing your skin type will help you care for your skin. If you want to learn more about your skin type and how to care for it, contact Medical Dermatology Specialists today. Our team of skin experts can recommend products specific to your skin type to help you feel and look your best. Always remember that sharing personal hygiene products with family members and friends is not recommended. Your skin type is specific to you, which is why you need a customized skincare plan.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
