There are many factors to take into consideration when we look at what type of skin a person may have. Aside from genetics things like what’s going on internally in our bodies and environmental factors are also part of the equation. Internally factors such as our state of health, hormones, and what we put in our bodies affect how we look.
This of course includes the health of our skin. Environmentally, we face things like pollution, second hand smoke and the sun which also affects our skin both health wise and visually.
There are 5 general categories that are used when we speak of skin types.

is due to active sebaceous glands. It produces too
much oil and the skin is over lubricated. Because too much sebum is produced
the skin is greasy, looks very shiny and the pores are large and clogged. The
texture is slippery but coarse do to the enlarged pores. It is acne, blackhead
and other pimple problem prone. It does have acne eruptions frequently. This is
due to the sebum trapped under the skin causing pus filled lesions called
comedones. There can also be flaky patches on oily skin where the oil dries.

is not prone to aging and wrinkles.
