You should often wash your face and bring Oil absorbent papers by your side if you have this kind of skin.
Your skin is normal if it does not shine nor dry. You should feel lucky if you have normal skin. Normal skin often feels supple, smooth and soft.
This is the most common skin type. Your skin is often oily in the T-zone and dry elsewhere. You should choose skin care products for combination skin and daily gently exfoliate is also needed.
Sensitive skin: Your skin is sensitive if it becomes red, irritated, and itchy after using normal daily products. Basic cleansers can sometimes be too irritating for people with sensitive skin.
