The different types of skin

Type de peau Ma Petite Corée

We do not all have the same skin and each requires special care depending on its type or condition. Dry skin does not require the same care as combination skin and if you apply nourishing products to oily skin, you will only worsen the condition of your skin ... 

No more mistakes now because the Skincare Expert of the My Little Korea team will guide you to discover your skin type.

It is especially necessary in the first place to distinguish the types of skin with the condition. The type of skin is what determines you, what is written in your DNA as the condition will depend on the environment outside and inside. You can't change your skin type, but you can control it if you use the right products.



Normal skin generally refers to skin that is well balanced between moisture and lipids. The skin produces everything in sufficient quantity to have healthy skin without discomfort.

Normal skin does not tighten, shine, or react to changes in temperature.

She can still be subject to external aggressions that will modify her condition: dehydrated, sensitive, etc.


Dry skin is skin that lacks lipids because the hydrolipidic film does not produce enough sebum to protect the skin. It therefore reacts to external conditions by drying out very quickly. 

The reactions are a rough touch, constant tightness and it peels more easily. 

You can see very dry patches in places or streaks, especially under the eyes.


The most common skin type in adulthood! It is characterized by a mixture of two types of skin: dry / normal and oily depending on the area.

The skin does not produce sebum evenly. There is both too much production in the T zone: forehead, nose and chin and conversely, a good or too low production in the cheeks.

The T-zone has shiny skin, large pores and blemishes like acne pimples and blackheads. The skin may be dull and gray.


Oily skin is due to an overproduction of lipids, and therefore of sebum, giving it a shiny appearance.

It manifests itself by shiny skin, large and visible pores. The skin is also thick and dull with a rather irregular texture.

Oily skin is much more likely to develop blemishes like blackheads, pimples or acne.

However, it remains less fragile than dry skin because the lipid barrier protects it from the outside, and is subject to skin aging later.
