Skin care in India, even in metros like Hyderabad, Mumbai, Delhi, etc. is offered by beauticians, cosmetologists, cosmetic companies, cosmetic dermatologists, dermatologists, skin doctors etc.No wonder with so many types of practitioners claiming expertise, the consumer is confused as to who can offer him/her the best and correct skin care solution.


How to diagnose your skin type –

Normal skin – Normal skin is smooth, soft, with no visible pores or blemishes, no greasy or flaky areas. It has a healthy glow.

Dry skin – Dry skin has a low level of sebum – ‘natural skin oil’, is not well hydrated and feels parched, dull and tight since it cannot retain moisture. One always feels the need to put some moisturizer or cream after washing the face.

Oily skin – The skin looks shiny, thick and dull due to overactive oil glands. It is very prone to acne and open pores. You feel the need to wash the skin repeatedly every 2-3 hours due to the greasy look.

Combination skin – The skin in the T-zone which includes the forehead, nose and the chin, is oily, and the rest of the face is drier.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot
    of unique content I’ve either written myself or
    outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all
    over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d really appreciate it.
