“Without Cells, Life Doesn’t Exist”

Your skin type is determined by your ethnicity and genetics. However, over time, your skin will change. Your skin type is based primarily on how much oil is produced in your follicles from the sebaceous glands and on the amount of lipids found between the cells.

The T-zone is the center of the face. Forehead, nose & chin. Depending on how large your pores are in the T-zone and throughout the face can usually determine the skin type. As we age, our cellular metabolism and oil/lipid production slow down, which leads to an individual’s skin becoming drier.

Skin Types

Dry: Does not produce enough oil. Needs extra care because it lacks normal protection. More sensitive due to lack of lipids. Skin can be slightly rough in texture, and tight.

Dehydrated: Lacks water. Skin can look thin or flaky and can feel tight and dry.

Normal: Has good water/oil balance. Can fluctuate and sometimes be more dry or oily.

Combination: Can be both oily and dry, or both oily and normal, at the same time.

Oily: Excess sebum (oil) production.

Sensitive: (Both a Skin Type & a Condition): Fragile, thin skin and redness. Easily irritated by products and by exposure to heat or sun. Can be difficult to treat because of its low tolerance to products and stimulation.

“No matter what the skin type, my goal is to balance the barrier function in your skin”
