THE 9 DIFFERENT SKIN TYPES
Oily / Congested / Acne
Skin Type 1
Skin type 1 is characterised by oily, problem skin and exhibits the most severe breakouts of all the types. This skin type requires a careful blend of AHA and BHA pore-clearing exfoliants, along with antiseptic botanicals to effectively reduce breakouts.
Normal - Oily / Combination / Occasional Breakouts
skin type 2
Skin type 2 is oily in the t-zone but may experience dryness or tightness elsewhere. This type may get occasional, mild breakouts and requires a careful blend of non-drying, pore-clearing exfoliants. Hydrating antioxidants help to prevent signs of visible ageing.
Oily / Combination / Sensitive / Consistent Breakouts
skin type 3
Skin type 3 produces oil mostly in the t-zone but may experience tightness, redness or irritation, especially when using harsh, drying products. This skin type experiences consistent breakouts and clogged pores. It requires a careful blend of antibacterial BHAs and soothing botanicals for oil-free hydration.
Oily / Combination / Sensitive / Occasional Breakouts
skin type 4
Skin type 4 produces oil in the t-zone but may experience dryness or tightness elsewhere. This type may become red and flush easily and may break out from heavy moisturisers. It requires calming, pore-clearing ingredients like BHAs that won’t leave skin feeling dry or irritated.
Normal / Sensitive / Red / Anti-Aging
skin type 5
Skin type 5 produces some oil in the summer but may feel dry or tight in the winter. This type experiences consistent redness or rosacea and requires gentle exfoliants and soothing nourishment to reduce redness as well as prevent visible signs of ageing.

Dry / Sun Damaged / Ageing
skin type 8
