SKIN TYPE 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9
OILY / COMBINATION / SENSITIVE / CONSISTENT BREAKOUTS
Oily, combination, sensitive skin prone to acne and clogged pores requires a careful blend of antibacterial and smoothing BHAs to deliver maximum blemish-clearing benefits without leaving the skin feeling tight, dry or irritated. Soluble Beta Glucan and natural Witch Hazel offer a calming effect to strengthen the skin from within to prevent future breakouts. The added benefit of oil-free hydration will give the skin a perfect balance.
SYMPTOMS OF SKIN TYPE 3:
- Enlarged pores and produces oil mostly in t-zone

THE SYMPTOMS OF SKIN TYPE 3
ENLARGED PORES AND OILY SKIN IN T-ZONE
Skin Type 3 is when someone has shine in the T-Zone, which is the forehead, the nose, and the chin. You can have oily skin on your cheeks as well, but it’s primarily centered on your T-Zone. If you have more oil and a lot of breakouts you may want to look at Skin Type 1.
BREAKS OUT FROM HEAVY OILS
If you’re somebody who has to be mindful of what products they use on their skin (ex. makeup, skincare, etc.), or someone who gets small bumps and breakouts easily you may be a Skin Type 3.
RED SKIN THAT FLUSHES EASILY, IRRITATED BY HARSH PRODUCTS
If you’re somebody who doesn’t get red easily, that’s okay, you can still be a Skin Type 3. The idea here is that you’re also someone who gets tight and irritated skin when using harsh products. We want to keep water levels in the skin balanced, so if you are someone that products are too strong and your skin feels tight, this skin type may fit you.
CONSISTENT BLEMISHES AND CYSTS
This is an important identifier when it comes to Skin Type 3 - consistent blemishes. We have other skin types for more occasional breakouts, but this is someone that may get new breakouts every day, up to maybe 7 or 8 breakouts a week. If you’re getting 10 to 14 a week, you probably want to look into Skin Type 1.
CLOGGED PORES AND BLACKHEADS
If you’re someone who gets clogged pores, whiteheads, bumps under the skin, and you have blackheads mostly in the t-zone where you produce oil then you could be a Skin Type 3.
POST-BLEMISH RED, DARK SCARS
Anyone who gets breakouts, regardless of your skin type, will get marks, but if you get a lot of breakouts then trying to clear up those marks and scars is a top priority for you.
WANTS TO KEEP SKIN HEALTHY AND SMOOTH & CONCERNED ABOUT AGEING
Even though your focus is to clear up the skin, and clear away breakouts you’re someone that’s mindful of keeping their skin healthy. You also might be thinking about how to prevent ageing down the road and Skin Type 3 definitely addresses this.
TEENS & ADULTS UP TO 25 YEARS OLD
The typical age range for Skin Type 3 is between the teen years and about 25 years old. You could be over 25 and still have Skin Type 3, but during those years are when you produce the most oil and are breaking out the most.
