Hello doctor,

What is the supposed oil content level? And moisture level in the face that will be considered as normal, low or high?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Both dry skin and oily skin are considered normal as long as it is not causing any problem such as premature cellular aging, wrinkles, acne, and the likes. The amount of moisture in the skin, on the other hand, has to be enough to keep your skin hydrated. So there is no definite answer to your question. I am afraid as it depends on individual skin type. As long as your skin is not breaking out in acne if you have oily skin, or getting clogged pores, you should be fine. If your skin is dry but not so much as to give you wrinkles, lines or a dull look, you should be fine. I hope this helps.
