Quick intro: Skin type and skin concern

Both - your skin type and your skin concern - describe your skin condition.

What does your skin type tell you?

There are 4 main skin types*:

  1. 1. Oily skin
  2. 2. Combination skin
  3. 3. Dry skin
  4. 4. Normal skin

Your skin can be classified into one of the 4 skin types. The skin type you have depends on the amount of oil / lipids your skin produces naturally.

Our skin produces two types of lipids:

1. Sebum
... is produced by the so-called sebaceous glands. It eventually flows onto the skin surface. Excessive sebum production makes the skin look shiny and oily.

2. Intercellular lipids
... are produced in the upper layers of the skin by tiny organisms called lamellar bodies. Intercellular lipids are key components of our skin barrier.

*There are more possible skin type combinations (mix of 2), but it’s usually enough to classify your skin into 1 of the 4 main skin types. This keeps things simple.

What are skin concerns?

Skin concerns describe (temporary) imbalances of the skin. They also depend on your desired skin condition and preferences. That’s why they may change over time.

You can have none, one, or more skin concerns at the same time.

Note that skin concerns affect all skin types (oily skin, combination skin, dry skin, normal skin).

Common skin concerns are: dehydration, (hyper)pigmentation, acne-prone skin, acne, clogged pores, fungal acne, anti-aging, sensitivity or wrinkles, and fine lines.

Our skin quiz helps you determine your skin type, as well as your skin concerns. Great, right? :)
