Frequently asked questions
There are four basic types of healthy skin: normal, dry, oily and combination skin. The condition of our skin can vary greatly according to the various internal and external factors that act upon it.
Dry skin can be caused by a dry climate, winter weather, severe deficiency of vitamin A, systemic illness, overexposure to sunlight, or medication. The skin loses moisture, and it may crack and peel. It may also become irritated, inflamed, and itch. The best way to care about your dry skin is to follow our professional advice.
An oily skin type is exactly what it sounds like – excess oil on the face produces a persistently shiny or greasy appearance. If you do not treat your oily skin, pores can become clogged and enlarged, and dead skin cells may accumulate. Blackheads, pimples, and other types of acne are also common with this skin type. Once again, give your skin professional treatment and always follow an expert’s advice.
The Fitzpatrick scale is a numerical classification system for human skin color. The following list shows the six categories of the Fitzpatrick scale:
- Type I (scores 0–6) always burns, never tans (palest skin, freckles)
- Type II (scores 7–13) usually burns, tans minimally
- Type III (scores 14–20) sometimes mild burn, tans uniformly
- Type IV (scores 21–27) burns minimally, always tans well (moderate brown)
- Type V (scores 28–34) very rarely burns, tans very easily (dark brown)
- Type VI (scores 35–36) never burns (deeply pigmented dark brown to darkest brown)
