  • Normal – skin that isn’t oily or dry, has few blemishes, is firm and generally smooth with small pores.
  • Oily – skin is shiny, possibly greasy, may have large pores and be prone to breakouts.
  • Dry – skin that, due to sun and age, may lack natural oils. May look smooth with fine pores and few blackheads or blemishes. May show rough, flaky patches of dryness.
  • Blemish – skin is normal to oily but has recurring blackheads and enlarged pores.
  • Anti-aging (35+ & 60+) – skin shows signs of aging, including crow’s feet, frown and expression lines, and loss of elasticity and hydration.

What are the causes of wrinkles?

Lines and wrinkles are caused by degenerative changes in the proteins of the skin’s infrastructure, such as loss of stored antioxidants and reduction in collagen. When attempting to correct signs of aging, it is important to use products that not only treat, but also prevent future damage from occurring.

What are the causes of age spots?

Hyperpigmentation, also known as age spots, is the darkening of an area of skin. Causes of hyperpigmentation include sun damage caused by UV exposure, hormone fluctuation due to pregnancy or menopause, and skin injuries such as acne scarring. Age spots mostly appear in areas consistently exposed to sunlight, such as the back of the hands, neck, chest and face. Certain skin types may be more susceptible to hyperpigmentation than others.

How can I maintain healthy skin?

Using sun protection and appropriate skin care products, especially those containing antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients, is essential in maintaining healthy skin. Proper nutrients, including vitamin supplements and daily water intake, are also key to healthy skin’s care.
