Knowing your skin type is the first step towards finding the perfect combination of products and creating a skincare regime that will fight your specific skin challenges. Here at Bradford Skin Clinic, we provide the best skincare solutions for normal, oily, dry, sensitive and combination skin.
It is not uncommon for skin types to change throughout your life. It’s more common for younger people to have normal skin, while it’s more common for older people to have dry skin. A variety of factors affects your skin type, including:
Sensitivity – Your skin’s ability to tolerate certain substances determines its level of sensitivity.
Oil (lipid) content – The oil content of your skin determines its nutrition or softness.
Water content – Hydration affects your skin’s elasticity and comfort.
With the latest technology and most effective treatments and products at our fingertips and amazing staff who know how to administer those treatments, Bradford Skin Clinic and Med Spa can customize a treatment plan that is ideal for you and your skin type.
Features of Normal Skin Type
Normal skin consists of a good balance of the right hydration and lipids and features:
- a radiant complexion
- few imperfections
- low sensitivity
- small pores
Features of Combination Skin Type
Combination skin is oily in parts and normal to dry in other areas. The T-zone (chin, nose and forehead) is often afflicted with oily skin and spots. It features:
- shiny skin
- overly dilated pores
This type of skin is affected by hormonal and genetic factors that result in an imbalance in the lipids and it may be affected by the weather.
Features of Dry Skin Type
Dry skin has low levels of hydration and lipids and can therefore result in:
- visible lines
- loss of elasticity
- rough, dull complexion
- almost invisible pores
- redness and patchiness
The skin will become itchy and flaky, and it may crack, or peel when inflamed and irritated. Extremely dry skin on the legs, arms, and the back of your hands may become scaly or rough.
The causes of dry skin may include:
- indoor heating
- weather (ultraviolet radiation, cold, sun or wind)
- overly hot showers or baths
- hormonal changes

To make the most of your skin type, it is important to take shorter, cooler baths and showers, using mild cleansers and gentle, mild unfragranced soaps.
