ABSTRACT:
Objectives: We cannot appraise our whole skin of the body only by facial sebum secretion. Objective behind present work is to assess overall skin type of volunteers and observe the occurrence of acne on their skin type by quantitative evaluation of sebum secretion. Methods: Study population comprised of healthy volunteers of age 25-35 years. Sebum secretion was measured at seven anatomical regions of the body by Sebumeter. Volunteers declared their subjective skin type. Using the data obtained by sebum secretion measurement we assess and define the final skin type. Further oily regions of the skin were observed for occurrence of acne. Key Findings: Study revealed that most of the volunteers (54%) hold normal skin. Chin was found to be the highest sebum [126±107.73µg/cm2] secreting anatomical region. Highest mean sebum secretion was observed at Tzone. The differences were found in final type of skin and skin type of seven anatomical regions. Only 9% of participated volunteer’s shown compliance between their subjective and objective skin type, hence subjective judgment for skin could not be considered as reliable method, skin type should be evaluated in a scientific way. High amount of sebum secretion was found to be a major component to cause acne problem in Indians. Conclusion: Regional differences in sebum secretion were confirmed. Understanding sebum secretion differences between various anatomical regions is necessary for the formulations of cosmetics and dermatological preparations. By knowing exact skin type one can choose correct cosmetic product for their face and body skin and enjoy over all healthy skin.
