Everyone knows that the skin is normal, i.e. healthy, in any case, not dry and not oily. If the skin is covered with a layer of subcutaneous fat and shines in the sun, it is classified as oily. This kind of skin is often characterized by enlarged pores, into which any dirt falls and moistened with the same sebum sticks. The skin resists foreign objects and protects healthy tissues from them, as a result, the face is covered with acne, inflammation and other troubles. Among the advantages of oily skin can be attributed to two: this property passes with age, and oily skin is less susceptible to the formation of wrinkles and cracks. Dry skin is its opposite: fragile, delicate, it is subject to any external factors, easily cracks, hard to tolerate physical influences, such as dust, scrub, as well as the action of the sun. There is no resistance to external factors.
Naturally, the skin of the face may be partly oily, for example, the cheeks, and partly dry, for example, the forehead. In this case, you have to select cosmetics for combination skin or use the corresponding forehead or cheeks.
Traditional cosmetology preserves the beauty of healthy skin or normalizes metabolic processes in accordance with the lunar cycle.
