The beauty industry is interesting. For the past year or so, I’ve heard countless women describe their skin type to me. They call themselves oily, dry, sensitive, prone to acne. I nod my head in solemn agreement, but I don’t always tend to actually agree with them. People, due to outside forces (which I’ll mention in a moment) like to over-simplify and pigeon-hole their skin type. “I have combination skin, it’s oily in the T zone” or “my skin is dry”. When I tell them I don’t really believe in “types”, that skin is constantly changing and reacting to the environment, lifestyle and health, I get a few raised eyebrows, as though I’m suggesting that their acne is an illusion or a figment of their imagination.
