Dividing the skin into skin types can help to better understand skin needs, but is clearly a simplification of a very complex topic.
Most of the time, a person's skin is a mixture of different skin types. Also to be taken into account are skin conditions, which can vary, depending on the season, physical and psychological condition and also on the body region. Therefore, the central question of every daily skin care routine is: "How is my skin today?", so that care can be adapted to the individual skin condition.
What skin types & skin conditions do we distinguish?
