Sebaceous glands are microscopic organs in the skin that secrete an oily substance called sebum that lubricates the skin. If your body isn't producing enough sebum, your skin might be dry. If your body is producing excess sebum, your skin might be oily. Normal skin is well balanced.
Skin type can be determined based on how your skin feels on the T zone (forehead to nose to chin) and cheeks.
All skin types can feel oily in the T zones based on time of the year or day. Dry skin can get oily in the T zone during summers.
Let us evaluate your skin type based on SkinID™ questionnaire.
