Did you know that 80% of people don’t know their skin type? While we can make assumptions, our unique genetic traits and lifestyle choices heavily influence the health of our skin and what it requires to look young, healthy, and beautiful. We often learn skincare from parents and friends, but that is typically misinformation because they don’t share the same skin type, even relatives! If you want to learn how to best care for your skin and the right products to use, we suggest taking a skin type test.
What is a Skin Type Test?
The Baumann Skin Type® Test, developed by Dr. Leslie Baumann, has been featured in medical textbooks and is trusted by hundreds of dermatologists to identify individual skin characteristics and categorize them into 16 types. These 16 skin types are based on the four barriers to skin health: dehydration, inflammation, pigmentation, and aging.
By taking the skin type test, one can identify their skin type and build a healthy routine using the ideal products for their skin. The test itself takes less than 10 minutes, and the results provide unique insights into how one can take their skincare to the next level.
While getting drugstore beauty and skin care products may have worked as a teenager, our skin requires more from us as we age. After completing your skin type test, you will receive a skincare regimen that best suits your unique needs. This regimen includes suggestions for various skin care products that fit your skin type.
