Daily washing and moisturizing are beneficial for all skin types, but different skin types, such as oily, dry, normal, combination, and sensitive skin, have various needs. The first step in giving your skin the correct care is to identify what kind it is. However, how can you tell what kind of skin you have? Simple observation will reveal the solution.

There are five main types of skin, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD): oily, dry, normal, combination, and sensitive. Each category has specific requirements and features that might affect how your skin looks and feels. You can start making wise choices and provide your skin with the specialized care and protection it requires now and in the future by first recognizing what type of skin you have.

Five Basic Skin Types

Skin, the largest organ in your body, serves a range of vital and intricate purposes, including controlling your body's temperature and preventing germs. All skin types require a healthy skin barrier, but it's vital to keep in mind that every person's skin is different in many ways. This implies that there isn't a "one size fits all" method for getting glowing, healthy-looking skin. However, there are a few similarities to look for that can assist you in determining your skin type. ”

The primary factors to consider when determining whether your skin is mainly oily, dry, normal, combination or sensitive are mentioned below.

Oily skin

Sebum produced in excess by oily skin makes the skin seem shiny and feel greasy, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD),2 people with oily skin may have fewer wrinkles on average, but they may also be more prone to enlarged pores, acne lesions, blackheads, and whiteheads.

Remember that simply when oily skin produces more natural oils, it still needs to be moisturized just as much as other skin types. The key to supporting oily skin is picking the correct products that moisturize and nourish without blocking pores or causing outbreaks. A gentle, foamy cleanser that is efficient in removing debris, extra oil, and other pollutants should be a part of the ideal oily skin routine. It should also contain a lightweight moisturizer that is non-comedogenic, oil-free and gives your oily skin the vital hydration it requires.

Retinol serum

Gentlehomme 2.5% Retinol Complex Serum is an advanced solution for a man's facial skin. This serum is designed to help with aging, and moisture and smooth out the skin. Using the serum daily may help with giving your skin the essential moisture it needs to look and feel youthful. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, collagen, and aloe vera, this serum is designed for a man's skin. Make retinol serum part of your evening routine by using a few drops. Only a small amount is enough to feel and see a big difference when used daily on a clean face.

Dry skin

In comparison to other skin types, dry skin often produces fewer natural oils. This could make it look dull and make it feel rough, flaky, or even scaly. It frequently has a tight or elastic feel, is dehydrated, and could be more prone to more obvious fine wrinkles. Additionally, it might itch or bother you.

Ceramides, for example, are gentle, soothing, and moisturizing skin care components that support the maintenance of the skin's natural moisture barrier. The Mayo Clinic advises against taking extremely hot, long showers, watering frequently throughout the day, and choosing skincare items that are alcohol-free, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic for dry skin types.

hyaluronic acid face serum

Gentlehomme Men’s Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum is formulated with vitamins. The extract codium tomentosum is rich in vitamin A which is helpful for the skin in various ways. It encourages deep layers of the skin to produce healthy skin cells. Our formula also includes vitamins C and E for added benefits. This premium Hyaluronic Acid face serum is designed for men of all skin types including sensitive, acne-prone, oily, and dry.

Normal skin

Skin that is balanced feels neither either dry nor overly oily. It doesn't flake, break out quickly, or feel tight or greasy. Normal skin types often have small pores, and smooth skin, and are less sensitive or prone to blemishes. Normal skin doesn't have any particular problems or worries, but it still needs the right treatment to look and feel its best. By retaining moisture and strengthening your skin's natural barrier, the optimum normal skin routine keeps your skin hydrated.

advanced collagen face mask

Gentlehomme Advanced Collagen Face Mask is a premium collagen mask solution specifically created for men. These skin care masks are designed for all skin types and formulated to help reduce signs of aging, and hydrate and moisturize the skin.

Combination skin

Combination skin has both dry and oily patches; the T-zone is typically oily, while the cheeks are either dry or average. This skin type can change with the seasons of the year and as a result of numerous things, like stress or changes in hormone levels. For skin that is oily or normal in some areas and dry in others, effective washing and hydration are essential.

face mist for men

Gentlehomme Face Mist is a unique 3-in-1 men's skincare solution. This water and facial spray are infused with coconut to help provide your skin with the moisture and hydration it needs. This men’s formula comes with vitamin B5, aloe vera, and hyaluronic acid. A face mist can become an essential skincare routine as it makes a great cleanser for both dry and sensitive skin types.

Sensitive skin

Although sensitive skin is sometimes described as having a certain skin type, it can also be oily, dry, or normal. Whatever skin type you have, if you have sensitive skin, it may seem red and feel dry, itchy, or burning. These symptoms may be brought on by certain substances, such as dyes or scents, as well as environmental variables and may be connected to skin that is more sensitive to external irritants.

If you have sensitive skin, you can identify the components that make you more sensitive and avoid using cleansers, moisturizers, or other products that include them. To lessen your exposure to triggers, you can also change your surroundings.

It's 100% natural, and non-comedogenic; it guarantees that it leaves no greasy residue.

Can Your Skin Type Change?

Skin types can vary (and probably will, at some point). For instance, it's rather typical to have oily or acne-prone skin as a teenager. You won't always have oily skin, though. Your skin becomes drier as you age (along with several other changes we won't get into here). Thus, having oily skin when you're young and drier skin as you age is usual.

Your skin type may also be influenced by other factors, such as the climate where you live: Hot heat and humidity may be connected to oilier skin, whereas cold, dry air is frequently linked to dryness.

vitamin c face serum

Gentlehomme Men’s Vitamin C Face Serum is formulated with magnesium ascorbic phosphate. The extract is a stable antecedent of vitamin C and achieves constant delivery of vitamin C into the skin and has antioxidative effects. It helps stimulate collagen production and maintain skin hydration.

Identify Your Skin Type

The Bare-Faced Method

Starting with a moderate foamy cleanser that is suitable for all skin types, such as Gentlehomme Facial Wash Booster, can help you achieve your desired results. After washing your face, pat it dry gently with a clean towel but do not use any skincare products. Observe how your skin feels and appears after 25 to 30 minutes. You most likely have dry skin if it feels tight, dry, and painful. People with excessive shine often have oily skin. You likely have combination skin if it has both oily and dry patches. Sensitivity is indicated by irritation, therefore if you don't have any of these issues, you presumably have normal skin.

The Blotting Sheet Method

By applying a clean piece of blotting paper to various parts of your face, you may also easily ascertain your skin type at home. To determine how much oil was absorbed, hold the sheet up to a light source. The more oil there is on the paper, the more oily your skin is going to be. Similarly to this, you can have dry skin if you notice little to no oil. Last but not least, if the blotting sheet only shows a small amount of oil from your T-zone, you most likely have a combination or normal skin type. Blotting your skin too soon after cleansing will skew the findings, so we advise performing this test in the afternoon or evening for the best results.
