Skin Types

Accurate skin analysis is the key to more effective treatments and home care regimens. Our goal is to improve the quality of your skin using custom botanical formulations. The type of skin we are born with is determined by the characteristics it displays – not by gender, ethnicity, color or condition.


Follow our steps below to determine your skin type and select the best products for you.
Determining your skin type doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s all in the pores.

Step 1

Step 1.

Take a look at the skin on your jawline. See how it’s smooth and relatively pore-free?

Step 2

Step 2.

Compare that to the skin next to your nose. Do the pores look bigger or the same?

Step 3

Step 3.

Examine other areas of the face. Are your pores bigger or smaller than what’s on your jawline? Don’t pay attention to your nose—this area always has larger pores, no matter the skin type.
