Having beautiful skin is essential. However, it's difficult to say which remedy is best for your skin if you don't know what type of skin you have. There are four general skin types: oily, dry, normal and combination.
If your skin has a strong tendency toward drying up, lacks oil, and has few breakouts if any at all, it is considered dry. In more extreme cases, dry skin lacks elasticity and can be extremely sensitive to the sun, wind, and cold temperatures. Wash your face once a day with a rich, creamy cleanser and warm water.
If your skin is oily, it usually has a lot of shine to it very soon after cleansing and the pores are generally slightly enlarged. It is more prone to pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads than other skin types and is coarser in texture.
Some consider normal skin to be combination skin, but it is not. If your skin is oily in the "T zone" and your nose while dry and taut on the cheeks, it is considered normal. It's also considered normal if it changes with seasons (dryer in winter, oilier in summer). Normal skins can also be 'Normal-To's' as in normal to oily or normal to dry.
Combination skin is comprised of two extreme skin types on one face. These situations occur when there is acne and a lot of oil in one area when the rest of the skin is generally dry (no oil).
However, whatever your skin type, it always boils down to good health. A poorly nourished body isn't able to support your body's health and beauty needs, and can lead to health and skin problems, lifeless hair, premature wrinkles and broken nails.
