Skin Care

Let the Web familiarize you with the special needs of your skin, and teach you good skin care habits to help you look and feel your best. If you have a specific skin condition you need to treat, are looking for skin care products to purchase or want to develop a regular skin care routine, the Skin Care Web Guide can help.

Skin Types

Skin types are often separated into three basic categories: oily, dry and combination. Your skin type determines pretty much every aspect of your skin care routine, so it’s essential to know what it is before you start buying products.

Insights for Skin Types

  • Skin types can change with time—especially as people grow out of adolescence. If your skin used to be oily or acne-prone, for example, you might consider reevaluating it for changes now.
  • Seasons also affect skin type: Many people experience dryness in the winter months, for example, or oiliness after getting a tan. If your skin is doing things out of the ordinary, you may need to alter your regimen based on the time of year.
  • The three main skin type distinctions can be limiting; many people have skin that lies somewhere in between. The sites in this section take into account the fact that not everyone fits exactly into one type.
