What skin you are in?
Your skin can change over time. Skin you had being young are more likely to change in the future. There are many factors that influence skin appearance and its condition. It is important to keep observing it and adopt daily routine at its present state.
Combination & Oily Skin: Combination skin can be oily in some areas, like the T-zone, and dry in others with overly dilated pores and a shiny complexion. Oily skin tends to be oily all over with enlarged pores and a thick, shiny complexion that is prone to blackheads and breakouts.
People with oily skin tend to over cleanse in the hope of reducing oiliness but unfortunately this tends to have the opposite effect as the body produces more and more oil to counteract the astringent effects of harsh cleansers. In fact, if you use an oil based cleanser and a good quality moisturiser (with SPF 30 specifically for oily skin) for a few weeks, you will likely find that the oiliness your skin improves over time.
Dry Skin: All-over dryness with a rough, reddish complexion, almost no visible pores, less elasticity, and more visible lines. Dry skin can crack, peel, or become itchy, irritated, or inflamed.
