Skin type is what we’re genetically born with. It can be determined by the amount of oil secreted by your skin, the size of your pores and the texture of your skin. Because your skin type’s embedded in your DNA, it can’t be changed, but it can be managed and controlled with the use of the correct skin care products. So, when you’re looking for the best skin care regimen for your skin, you should always consider your skin type (normal, dry, oily or combination).

It can be caused by both internal and external factors, such as the environment, your diet, stress levels, medication, hormones, skin care routine and age.
