You may have combination skin if your chin, nose and forehead are oily, but your cheeks, temples and the area around your eyes are dry. You may also have combination skin if you notice your skin becoming more oily or dry depending on the time of year and climate.

You may have oily skin if your face always looks shiny and wet, especially in the middle of the day when you will produce more oil. Oily skin is prone to blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and clogged, enlarged pores.

You may have dry or sensitive skin if your skin feels rough and dry or tight. You may also notice dry rashes (a condition called eczema) or red patches. Dry, sensitive skin can result in redness or irritation when you use skin products.

You may have normal skin if your complexion looks even and smooth. You will rarely have skin irritation or acne and can use skin products without causing irritation or redness.

All skin types can benefit from the services of your dermatologists in Yardley. They can suggest a wide variety of available skin products to work in harmony with your skin, allowing you to look and feel your best.

If you suffer from oily, acne-prone skin, you may benefit from extraction, to remove blackheads and clear up clogged pores. Your dermatologists may also suggest prescription medications to keep acne from returning.

If you suffer from dry, sensitive skin you may be feeling the effects of aging. Deep, penetrating facials and moisturizing masks can provide soothing relief from age-related dryness.
