What Causes Oily or Dry Skin?

When it comes to skin there are several different types that can impact the way your skin looks and feels. These types include dry, oily, normal, and combination. Individuals with dry skin have a skin type that produces less sebum, or oil, than normal skin. It can feel tight and rough, and often looks dull. Oily skin occurs when the face produces too much oil, creating a shiny or greasy appearance. If oily skin is left untreated, pores can easily become clogged and enlarged, and dead skin cells may build up. Combination skin is a mixture of dry and oily skin, with some areas like the cheeks feeling dry and the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) feel oily. The ideal skin type that most people strive for is normal, which means there is a healthy balance of oil on the skin.
