SEB Skin Masterclass: 02 – What is your skin type?

Normal skin type

It can be difficult to know what your skin type is. Use the information below to identify your skin type and remember that your skin type might change during the year.

Read to the bottom for an exciting product I have been working on…


  • Smooth, even skin tone;
  • Free from dry or shiny patches; and
  • It feels soft and silky.


  • Lacking in oil and moisture so the skin is dry to the touch;
  • Flaky and rough to the touch;
  • Dry skin is thin and capillaries (veins) might be visible;
  • Lines and wrinkles form when the skin is dry, especially around the eyes; and
  • Skin is dull with a matte finish and lacks suppleness.


  • Shiny appearance (due to overproduction of sebum) with large pores;
  • The skin is thicker because of increased activity of the sebaceous glands (the glands that produce oil); and
  • Blemishes, spots, pimples and blackheads are common for this skin type due to the build up of dirt and grime on the surface of the skin blocking the pores.


  • Reacts to mild stimulation such as chemicals in products;
  • Flushes with colour easily; and
  • Sore and possibly dry to touch.


  • Fine textured and low elasticity and collagen (which means it might sag); and
  • Wrinkles

A combination skin type can be a variation of any of the above skin types. The most common “combination” skin type is an oily “T-zone” which is the forehead and the nose, along with dry cheeks.


Tracking your skin is key in understanding what your skin does or doesn’t like.

You can now learn, track and journal all about your skin using the SEB Ultimate Skincare Journal that I have put together and published as a book so you can use it to better get to know your skin.

This Ultimate Skincare Journal explains the Skin Structure, Skin Type, what you can do to help your skin and natural ingredients and their properties to help the skin.

Did you know that cell renewal depends on your age, so for example if you are 20 years old, it takes 20 days for new skin cells to form, if you are 30 years old it takes 30 days and so on!

The skin is impacted by many factors, for example sleep, diet, exercise, alcohol, age, hormones, weather conditions and stress. By tracking your skin you can be mindful of all these factors and how they might be impacting the health of your skin.
