In my earlier SkinCurve article, we talked about how moisture changes in your skin during a typical day. While measuring a single characteristic, like moisture, may be insightful, you need to measure a whole profile to best know what’s happening with your skin. If you don’t, it’s like reading your blood pressure but instead of getting 120/80, you only get the systolic number (120)—it can be very misleading.
Let’s look at two of the important skin measures, oil and moisture.
Your ideal skin band is high moisture (for supporting healthy skin function), and medium oil, to help protect the skin and lesson water loss during the day. Many people incorrectly think their skin is either oily or dry (or normal/combination), but your skin can be both oily and dry.
You are in the good skin band when you have medium levels of oil and moisture.
Your skin status is poor either when your skin is low on moisture and oil or it is low on moisture but high on oil.
Oil and moisture, when looked at in combination, lets you know what to do.

The moisture-oil levels in your skin is a small example of why you need to understand the various factors that make up your skin health. We’re now in the 21st century and we now know that many factors affect how healthy your skin is.
Learn about your skin profile with the dermograph and take charge of your skin.
