Reviewed by Melissa Conrad Stöppler, MD, Chief Medical Editor on Friday, April 15, 2011

A teenage girl checks her skin in the mirror.

Before you can care for your skin and keep it healthy, you need to identify your skin type.

Normal skin has an even, smooth skin tone, soft texture, and no visible blemishes, red spots, or flaky patches.

Dry skin is dull, rough, scaly, and itchy, with almost invisible pores.

Oily skin is acne-prone skin with open pores, a shiny complexion, blackheads, and pimples.

With normal/combination skin, you might have an oily 'T-Zone' (forehead, nose, and chin) and dry skin elsewhere.

There are four simple steps to keep your teenage skin clean and healthy.
