Formulation matters and the right active ingredients can be the difference between achieving your skin goals and falling short. Your skin goal will impact the choice of ingredients. For example, the choice of skin-replenishing ingredients to help revive skin’s surface or skin-restoring ingredients to help to transform it to appear noticeably younger or antioxidants to intercept problems in the environment or ingredients to achieve a more vibrant, healthier-looking skin tone!
My additional skin goals
Skin is the body's largest organ. When healthy, its layers work hard to protect us. But when it's compromised, the skin's ability to work as an effective barrier is impaired. We have therefore found the best ways to improve skin health to support it in maintaining its protective role using ingredients that are in support of your skin goals.

My skin type
When you discover what your skin type really is you can make better decisions about the ingredients best for you. Although all skin types need the same essential skin care staples such as antioxidants, skin-replenishing ingredients, and skin-restoring ingredients, some of the ingredients need to be very different based on your skin type.
My biggest skin concern
Skincare products and routines can have a significant long-term impact on overall quality of our complexion. By understanding all skin concerns, we can better individualize our skincare products using effective ingredients designed to address our specific skin concern and support skin health. Enlarged pores, acne, oily or dry skin, and roughness can all affect the appearance of our skin texture. A daily skin care routine can help improve our skin texture to create a smooth and even complexion.
My skin sensitivity
Sensitive skin refers to a range of conditions, from genetic ailments, such as rosacea and exzema, to severe allergies. Most people with sensitive skin deal with some amount of redness. This can take the form of a red rash, red bumps, blushing and flushing, or even red dilated blood vessels. Dry skin and sensitive skin can go hand-in-hand. Skin may often feel itchy and be prone to rashes and bumps.
These sensitivities bother me
Everybody’s skin care needs are different. Skin sensitivity actually has to do with the fatty outer layer of your skin. In people with sensitive skin, this barrier is typically weaker, thinner, and more easily damaged, making it easier for irritants to penetrate the skin and cause inflammation. To treat it right, one should carefully choose ingredients as these have different effects on wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and other skin problems.
My age range
Good skin care is essential at any age and healthy habits in the 20s and 30s can strengthen and prepare our skin for the effects of aging down the road. Our skin changes as we age—and so should our skincare products. Skin loses tone, tightness and elasticity and becomes drier, more fragile and thinner over time. These effects can lead to a more pronounced appearance of wrinkles, dryness, redness and sagging skin.
There are basic gender differences in skin physiology and biochemistry. That includes hormone metabolism, hair growth, sweat rate, sebum secretion, hydration, surface pH and fat accumulation. Men have much higher levels of testosterone, which makes their skin 25 per cent thicker and behave differently to a woman’s. In women, the predominant hormone is oestrogen. Women have a higher surface pH than men, which may explain why woman have a greater tendency for dry skin.
My skin tone (my melanin level)
There are 3 main pigments that give our human skin a wide variety of colors: melanin, carotene and hemoglobin. Melanin is the pigment that creates our skin tone and higher levels of melanin provide greater protection against aging and sun exposure. However, these higher levels also make it more likely for melanin to become concentrated in certain areas, which causes hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Lighter complexions are more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines.
My skin's reaction to sun light
Most plants have anti-oxidants in varying amounts. They can counter "free radicals", tiny particles that harm DNA inside of cells. Skin cells with that kind of damage can speed up aging, leading to wrinkles, dry skin, dark circles under eyes, dull skin, and more.
Frequency of breakouts
Acne is a common skin problem with several underlying causes. Climate changes, genetics, diet, hormones, allergies, bacteria, or stress are some of the most common triggering factors. Freating a specific skin condition often means employing a particular skin-care regimen, and for another, your condition may make your skin more sensitive to certain ingredients. The most important step is to choose the right ingredients that actually benefit your skin.
Evaluation of my skin - shoulders to toes
Hydrate from head to toe. While your skin is still wet from your shower activities, it’s an ideal time to hydrate your skin. Smooth a hydrating lotion or oil over your body from your neck to your toes. Our skin may cover our entire body, but its thickness varies, padding parts of our body more prone to wear and tear with thick skin and placing thinner skin on the parts of our body that take less of a beating. The skin on our face is thinner than the skin on your body, with the exception of the chest.
Skincare products used by me
The goal of any skin-care routine is to tune up your complexion so it's functioning at its best, and also troubleshoot or target any areas you want to work on. Use of skin personal care products on a regular basis is nearly ubiquitous, but their effects on molecular and microbial diversity of the skin are unknown.
Make up products used by me
Improper use of makeup can actually make matters worse. It can clog pores and cause blemishes or pimples. Not knowing the skin and using the wrong kind of foundation, can cause skin to break out.
My daily consumption of water
Water helps our skin maintain moisture, which increases elasticity. Drinking more water can also help balance our pH level to give healthy skin. Water aids in digestion, circulation, absorption and even rids the body and skin of toxins. If
This is the environment in which I live
Higher temperatures may lead to a higher rate of oil (sebum) production but also lead to sweating. Perspiration can irritate skin and trigger breakouts. Cold temperatures often accompany low humidity that dries our skin. During the winter m
Hours of physical activity per week
Exercise helps maintain healthy levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Spiked cortisol levels can lead to breakouts or cause the collagen in your skin to break down, which can increase wrinkles and sagging. A good workout can actually help
Hours of sleep
A good night's sleep can mean good skin health because when we are sleep-deprived, our body makes more of the stress hormone cortisol. Elevated levels of cortisol can lead to increased stress and hurting our skin's quality. Cortisol encoura
