About Skin
Regarding skin, just as no particular hair type can be attributed to any single ethno-racial group, neither can any particular skin type or tone, as to do so would be inaccurate in terms of providing adequate skin care for a particular skin type needs. Below is a listing of the various known primary skin types; Normal-Type 1, Oily-Type 2, Dry-Type 3, and Combination-Type 4, with the first subcategory of pore size variation; subtypes A-invisible pores, B-small slightly visible to medium pores, and C-large pores, and second/beta sub-category of tones and hues within and across skin tones; P-porcelain tones; a general reference for very fair skin tones in skin, H-honey tones; a general reference for very light to deep honey tones in skin, M-mocha tones; a general reference for light to medium brown to cinnamon or mocha tones in skin and E-ebene tones; a general reference for very rich, deep dark-brown, mahogany and ebony tones in skin. Other general clarifiers; BFS-blemish free skin, MA-mild to moderate acne, SA-severe acne, or XA-extremely severe acne. Note: studies have shown that to prevent sun damage, broadband sunscreens should be used year-round by all skin types regardless of skin tone.

Skin Types and Subtypes

Skin Type-Subtype 1abc: Normal
Normal skin is characterized, for the most part, by a natural ability, to retain proper oils production balance and moisture necessary for optimum skin health. Normal skin is skin whose moisture production levels are within a normal range and does not typically dry out in the manner dry skin, nor does it become over shiny in the manner of oily skin, and moisturizing needs are typically determined by changes in climate.
1A: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are normal, with pores that are invisible or nearly invisible to the naked eye.
1B: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are normal, with small to medium pores that may also be visible to the eye.
1C: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are normal, with large pores that are easily visible to the naked eye.

Skin Type-Subtype 2abc: Oily
Oily skin is characterized by a hormonal imbalance that causes an over-production of oils in the body resulting in a natural increased vulnerability to acne. Oily skin is skin that usually has a higher than normal or an overproduction of oils] and a trade mark of oily skin is skin that tends to have a natural sheen or shininess, usually most noticeable near the t-zone area [forehead and nose] or cheeks, and is more susceptible to acne breakouts than dry or combination skin. Light gel or water-based moisturizers are more easily absorbed and less weighty are recommended for this skin type.
2A: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are above normal, with pores that are invisible or nearly invisible to the naked eye.
2B: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are above normal, with small to medium pores that may also be visible to the eye.
2C: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are above normal, with large pores that are easily visible to the naked eye.

Skin Type-Subtype 3abc: Dry
Dry skin is characterized by a hormonal imbalance deficiency that results in the body’s inability to properly retain water and moisture levels, resultant in the tendency towards dry, chaffed skin and can be vulnerable to dry skin disorders such as eczema or psoriasis. Dry skin is skin that does not retain normal moisture levels and usually very easily becomes died out or chaffed, and dry skin tends to feel very tight or chaffed after cleansing if daily moisturizers are not used. Dry skin requires heavier moisturizing products like body oils such as High Oleic Sunflower Oil or Safflower Oil combined with Wheatgerm Oil or Soybean Oil, or rich body butters such as pure Shea, and in the case of extremely dry skin, plain nursery jelly can be used after bathing/showering to aid in locking moisture into skin.
3A: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are below normal, with pores that are invisible or nearly invisible to the naked eye.
3B: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are below normal, with small to medium pores that may also be visible to the eye.
3C: Skin whose moisture and oil production levels are below normal, with large pores that are easily visible to the naked eye.

Skin Type-Subtype 4abc: Combination
Combination skin is characterized by a tendency to simultaneously display two or more principle skin type traits. Combination Skin is skin that has or displays any combination of characteristics of two or more primary skin types, shininess usually occurs in the t-zone areas, and may have periodic acne or dryness or oiliness depending on weather, but combination skin can be controlled with proper cleansing and moisturizing products specifically designed for this skin type, like lotions or in colder climates, butters.
4A: Skin whose natural moisture and oil production levels reflect dual types, with pores that are invisible or nearly invisible to the naked eye.
4B: Skin whose natural moisture and oil production levels reflect dual types, with small to medium pores that may also be visible to the eye.
4C: Skin whose natural moisture and oil production levels reflect dual types, with large pores that are easily visible to the naked eye.
