Normal skin:
People with normal skin have soft and smooth texture. Normal skin have balanced amount of water and lipids. If a person has a normal skin, he/she has a very good skin. Normal skin also requires cleaning, nourishing and moisturizing. Every day in the morning, clean your face with rose water or astringent tonic. You can moisturize your skin with non greasy cream which is made up of organic or natural ingredients without petroleum by-products. After a hard day’s work when you reach home your skin may turn out to be filthy due to which you get black heads. In order to avoid that wash your face with a mild soap and apply an oil-based nourishing cream on your face. Gently massage your eyes with the cream, after 15 minutes pat your skin with a napkin. To keep your skin in good condition do follow certain steps- drink plenty of water, eat organic food, wear a sunscreen lotion to protect your skin from sun.

Dry skin:
During winter, dry skin faces lot of problems because it is very sensitive. Do not use commercial creams and lotions. Creams that have natural hypoallergenic ingredients are considered best for dry skin. After taking bath in the morning, apply virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter or shea butter all over your body. These contain some natural ingredients like essential oils, vitamin A, C, D and E and protein. Do not wash your face with tap water. Clean your face with mineral water, ice, toner, cosmetic milk. When you take a shower just spend three minutes a day in water. Use only mildest soap. Do not scrub your face. But use only a mild oatmeal soap, which will avoid irritation to your skin. If your skin has itchy spots, do not scratch over that. Apply coconut oil on the itchy spots.

Oily skin:
In oily skin you should try to remove excessive oil. Use mild soap only once in a day but wash your face 2-3 times a day. Always use non greasy moisturizers. Apply clay, papaya or yogurt on your face as it is the best mask for oily skin. Apply this for 20 minutes in a week and wash your face with cool water.

Combination skin: It is a combination of both oily and dry skin. Certain areas of your face are oily and certain dry. Mostly forehead and nose have more excessive oil and other areas like eyes and cheeks are dry. So the areas that are oily use oil skin tips and areas with dry skin use dry skin care tips.

Sensitive skin: This skin type is always very dry and irritated. Do consume a large amount of fatty acids, organic protein, yogurt and lacto-fermented fruits and vegetables. If a woman is vegetarian, they would develop very dry, wrinkled and irritated skin. Follow dry skin tips for sensitive skin.
