Normal Skin Man
If your skin doesn’t get too dry or too oily, then you most likely have normal skin. Pimples are rare and pores are small. Normal skin has an even tone, smooth and firm.

Cheap shaving creams, perfumes, alcohol based products and such causes sever skin reactions, sting and itchy feeling… torture. If this is you then make sure you choose your skin care products carefully. When you have use gels instead of creams. Then put on some aftershave balm with a bit of sun protection. Use glycerin soap, no fragrance type soaps. If any redness occurs after using a product stop using it and move on to the next, don’t worry the chosen one will come along sooner or later.
Combination Skin Man
This is when you have a combo of two types on your face. Some people usually refer to it as having a T zone (forehead, nose and chin) and the part out of the T zone are the cheeks and eye area.
