Your skin type: Impure skin

Your skin type is: Impure skin

Impure skin is prone to blackheads, so-called comedones, which sometimes form inflamed, small reddish pustules. Impure skin most often occurs in adolescents after puberty, but can also recur throughout life. Lifestyle, diet, hormones and genes play a big role. Most of the time, the combination of excessive sebum production and keratinization is the basis for small inflammations in the sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Too much sebum is a breeding ground for some bacteria that are on our skin. The Propionibacterium acnes, which gives its name to acne, feels particularly at home here and metabolizes fatty acids on an assembly line. With impure skin, the goal is to bring sebum production back into balance. Cleaning that is too harsh and aggressive can also have an impact on sebum production. If too much sebum is removed from the skin, it reacts by producing even more sebum - and a vicious circle arises. Your skin primarily needs moisture, which you should give it and an intact skin barrier.

Oily skin

Oily skin tends to produce more sebum and sweat, which makes it shiny and coarse-pored. Unwanted blackheads often form, which unfortunately can also develop into acne.

Dry skin

Dry skin is also known as lipid-dry condition or sebostasis. It usually also belongs to the category of problem skin, sensitive or sensitive skin. Your skin produces too little sebum.

Sensitive skin

Symptoms of sensitive skin include redness, flaking, itching and feelings of burning and tension. Likewise, sensitive skin can quickly develop rashes with pustules, papules or swelling.

Combination skin

It is typical for combination skin that some areas show symptoms of dry skin and other areas show symptoms of oily skin. Most of the time the forehead, nose and chin (called the T-zone) are shiny and oily, possibly even unclean, while the cheeks are dry, dull and flaky at the same time.

Mature skin

Everyone gets mature skin over the course of their life. Some earlier, some later. When your skin begins to show the first signs of aging depends on many different factors

Impure skin

Impure skin is prone to blackheads, so-called comedones, which sometimes form inflamed, small reddish pustules. Impure skin most often occurs in young people after puberty, but can also recur over the course of life.

Normal skin

The term “normal” is generally used for a balanced complexion. The T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) can be slightly oily, but the sebum and moisture levels are balanced and the skin is neither too oily nor too dry.
