At Viviyan AIda Skin Care we offer a free Skin Type Analysis to determine the proper skin care treatment for each individual. Generally, each individual's skin type falls in one of the following categories:

Normal Skin:

Normal Skin is classified as a smooth texture and clear surface with tight pores. There is no visible sign of oiliness, or flakiness in the skin. Sebum and level of oil production and moisture level are well balanced. Normal skin is more common in younger age group.

Oily Skin:

Oily Skin is always prone to black heads, white heads, and blemishes due to over active sebaceous glands and increase level of lipid production in the skin’s surface. Usually oily skin has larger pores and is usually shiny and thick.

Combination Skin:

Combination Skin is oily in some parts of the skin and dry in other areas. Most of the time dryness occurs around the cheeks and around the eyes. Oiliness occurs in the t-zone areas, which are the nose, chin, and forehead. Combination skin requires different types of skin care regimens for the oily and dry skin parts.

Dry Skin:

Dry Skin always appears dull, and shows lack of moisture in its corneous layer. Skin dryness is caused by the skin feeling tighter and even flakier. Sometimes the skin might lose elasticity and shows fine lines and wrinkles. In some cases because of sever dryness skin feels itchy and burning may occur to. Dry Skin can also be cause by climate factors and cosmetics and medication.
