Skin Types - to determine your skin type, see our guide below.

Tip:  Find your skin type and then choose one item from each of these basics:  Cleanse, Exfoliate, Tone, and Moisturize.  Then, add the extras that you need to give you a complete and personalized skin care system:  Masques, AHA Treatments, Eye Treatments, and Oil Control products.  On the product pages, look for the color-coding to find which product is right for you.


To Determine Your Skin Type:

1.  Wash your face with a skin cleanser, then rinse and pat dry.

2.  Wait 30 minutes.

3.  Take a close look at the skin all over your face. Note the skin around your eyes, the size of the pores, the amount of oil-shine, the skin on your forehead, the skin on your nose.  Open a tissue fully and place it on your face, gently applying pressure. Note the areas (if any) on the tissue that have absorbed oil.
