Skin Types

  • Dry Skin: Nourish, stimulate & hydrate skin with moisture-dense botancials that restore the lipid barrier
  • Combination Skin: Bring skin back to balance by harmonizing oil production and refining visible pores
  • Oily Skin: Minimize the look of enlarged pores while controlling excess oil and absorbing shine
  • Sensitive/Reactive Skin: Use targeted botanicals to relieve irritation, calm redness & soothe tender skin
  • Acne Skin: Can be dry, combination, oily or reactive. Focus is to calm, clear blemishes and detoxify pores so that skin stays acne-free
  • Mature Skin: Can be dry, combination, oily or reactive. This over 40 skin often needs hydration.

It is important to note that Acne and Mature skin are both a skin type and a condition. These two can be tricky and a skin analysis is a great way to get personalized advice.
