The skin type is generally determined by the natural sebum production process, which makes us understand not only if it is too much or too little greasy but also how quickly our skin loses moisture, letting moisture evaporate.
The best test is once again to observe our skin, therefore we must wash the face and wait about an hour without applying any type of cosmetic, from how our face will look we could determine which type we belong to.
Normal Skin : it is a balanced skin in terms of hydrolipidic balance, it produces enough sebum useful to seal hydration and appear smooth but not so much that it looks greasy.
- the skin does not appear greasy

Dry Skin : it is a skin that does not produce enough sebum, resulting not very smooth to the touch and poorly performing in retaining moisture which therefore evaporates.

- marks and lines appear more evident
- often prone to peeling and red spots
Oily Skin : is a skin undoubtedly characterized by an overproduction of sebum which makes it appear shiny.

- the pores are particularly dilated in some areas
- eruptions and blackheads are frequent
Combination Skin : is a skin that appears greasy in some areas - generally the so-called T-zone consisting of the forehead, nose and chin - and dry in others. Normally there are small differences between the various parts of the face, but in the case of combination skin these are really pronounced.
- the skin is noticeably oily in some areas and dry in others
- the pores in the shiny areas are dilated
