We do not use the term ‘skin types’ as every person is different.
You and your skin cannot be rigidly pigeon-holed.
You need the right care concepts for different days and places, different seasons and different stages of life.
At Dr.Hauschka, we therefore refer to skin conditions, which appear and disappear, rather than fixed skin types.
|Skin condition||How do I determine my skin condition?|
|Normal skin||Fresh, moist, rosy with a slightly oily T-zone, not sensitive or reactive|
|Dry skin||Fine pores, dry skin, premature wrinkling, skin feels taut, tends to look pale|
|Sensitive skin||Redness, thin skin, may have persistent redness in the cheeks / nose area, visible blood vessels|
|Sensitive combination skin||Redness, oily T-zone, large-pored, possibly blemished, dry cheeks|
|Combination skin||T-zone with skin blemishes, large pores, oily, cheeks dry|
|Oily, blemished skin||Large pores, oily appearance, skin blemishes|
