Skin categories for your facial skin type.
Here are four primary skin categories for the face:
Balanced Skin personality
Hormone Reactive Skin Personality
Environmental and sensitive skin personality
Mature/Age Perfected Skin Personality
Below will explain the traits of each skin personality with yes or no questions to assist you in determining your skin personality. The area with the most yes answers will help you to determine your skin personality. You could also pay attention to your skin over the next 30-days if you aren't quite sure of your skin personality. Some people have more then one skin personality so we have made some face oils from combination skin as well. Please keep in mind it will take approx 6 weeks for your skin to adjust to any new products there for you may need to give the face oil some time to work its magic!
