Knowing your skin type is an important element of properly caring for your skin. Use this guide to help you determine your skin type so you can start to cater your care routine to your skin’s unique needs:
If you have trouble keeping your forehead, nose, and chin clear and free from breakouts, you probably have combination skin. Combination skin often has more oil in these areas, while other parts of the face, like the temples, the eyes, and the cheeks stay really dry. You might also notice that your skin changes with the weather.
People who have shine over the entire face are dealing with oily skin. Oily skin keeps pores clogged, which increases the risk for blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and zits. If you have oily skin, it is important to use skincare products that will not increase the amount of oil on your face.
If your complexion stays pretty balanced and you almost never get pimples or other forms of acne, you most likely have normal skin. If your skin is normal, it finds the perfect balance between oil and dryness so you can put your best face forward without much effort.
If your skin is full of red patches or eczema, you are probably dealing with dry skin. This might cause your face to feel tight or rough, especially later in the day. Even if you apply moisturizer, your skin might never feel hydrated. If you have dry skin, you should talk to your dermatologist about the right kind of products for your needs.

Many teenagers struggle with acne. Acne breakouts can make an already awkward time of life even more uncomfortable. While some acne is normal, severe cases that require the attention of a medical professional can occur. If you notice any of the following signs, it is time to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to start getting the necessary treatment to reduce acne symptoms:
The acne is getting out of control
A few pimples are normal during adolescent years. If you or your teen is suffering from severe acne, though, it might be time to get some professional help. Severe acne often causes pimples or blemishes all across the face, the shoulders, and even the back. If there are more than a few pimples and simply washing the face and body does not seem to help, a dermatologist can help find a more serious treatment that gets results.
Non-prescription medication is not helping
In most cases of teen acne, over-the-counter medication will help decrease pimples, blemishes, and red spots. If these simple remedies are not helping, however, visiting the dermatologist gives you a chance to get a prescription for a stronger medication that should help.
The acne is a side effect
Sometimes acne develops as a result of certain medications. If you notice that your acne was a side effect of a prescription you are taking, it is important to consult with a dermatologist. He or she can either find a way to work around the acne or decide on alternative medication treatment that will not come with the same side effects.
The acne is causing scars
If the acne is severe enough to leave permanent markings, it is time to get some medical attention. The dermatologist can find a way to control future breakouts and help reduce the appearance of the scars.
If you or your teen is suffering with acne, Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery can help. Our skin care doctors are here to offer you the treatments you need to get healthier, more attractive skin.
