Your skin type is as unique as a fingerprint.
It needs a care regime that works to address its specific pH, tone, and the delicate balance of its overall moisture retaining qualities.
Because we all seek that radiance that comes with healthy skin.
But what’s your skin type, and what routine do you need to have set in place, to make sure it’s always glowing?

Vaseline® Skin Type Tips

Your skin is a living, breathing organ, susceptible to both environmental influences, and the things you put into your body.

Because of this, it reacts and responds in particular ways as it attempts to adjust to the levels of protection you need for skin comfort.

These influences are varied, though – sun exposure, pollution, smoking – and so your skin may not always get it quite right. The result can be imbalance to the skin, uneven skin tone, breakouts and dryness.

Here’s what different skin types may look like:


This is skin that’s dry and normal in some areas, but oily in others – especially in the part called the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin).

Some factors combination skin can show are:

  • Shininess
  • Large pores
  • Blackhead breakouts


This skin type mostly manifests in itchiness, irritation, or inflammation. Some factors can include:

  • Dullness
  • Redness
  • Visible lines
  • Flakiness


Oiliness in the skin is the overproduction of a substance called sebum. Causes of this may include hormone changes, your genetics, even stress. Some manifestations are:

  • Shiny complexion
  • Thick complexion
  • Large pores
  • Pimples or other blemishes


Sensitivity in skin is often due to its response to the products you use. Some factors can show as:

  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Itchiness

Top Tips To Healthier Skin, No Matter The Type

These are very specific characteristics of the most common skin types. But again, your skin is a unique organ, vulnerable to influence and prone to reacting in many different ways. Ways that can’t always be defined as a whole to be a specific type.

Try these top tips:

  1. Moisturise day and night.

  6. Don’t wear your make-up to bed.
