Skin condition chart

You and your skin cannot be rigidly pigeon-holed. You need the right care concepts for different days and places, different seasons and different stages of life. At Dr.Hauschka, we therefore refer to skin conditions, which appear and disappear, rather than fixed skin types.

Skin condition

How do I determine my current skin condition?

Normal skin Rosy, firm, fine-pored, not sensitive, slightly oily T-zone
Dehydrated, dry skin Fine-pored, low oil content, dehydrated, premature wrinkling, feels tight, dull and lacklustre
Sensitive skin Slightly red, thin skin, may have persistent redness in the cheeks / nose area, visible blood vessels
Sensitive combination skin Slightly red, oily T-zone, large-pored, possibly blemished, dry cheeks
Combination skin Blemished T-zone, large-pored, quickly becomes oily, dry cheeks
Blemished, oily skin Large-pored, quickly becomes oily, blemished
Mature skin Declining elasticity of the skin, wrinkling, increased dryness, thin skin, may have persistent redness in the cheeks / nose area (visible blood vessels), menopause-induced, age spots
