Your product choices depend on it!
The Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute is proud to announce the launch of the Skin Type Solutions System! Taking only a few minutes, the Skin Type Solutions Questionnaire allows our staff to accurately determine your Baumann Skin Type, and recommend a customized skincare regimen that's been proven to work for your unique skin!
The assessment is based on the eight Baumann Skin Type® parameters, which are:
Dry (D) or Oily (O)How much moisture your skin retains and how much oil is produced determine its overall hydration status. Pore size and the tendency toward clogged pores also relates to oil production and moisture retention.
Sensitive (S) or Resistant (R)Sensitive skin is more prone to burning, acne, and frequent rashes or stinging. Skin that is resistant will only rarely become inflamed, and may require stronger ingredients in skin care products.
Pigmented (P) or Non-pigmented (N)This parameter is set on its own, not related to ethnicity. Pigmented skin may more easily become discolored, whereas non-pigmented skin remains more consistent in terms of coloring.
Wrinkle-prone (W) or Tight (T)Skin that is prone to wrinkles requires specific ingredients to offset the aging process. Those with tight skin, such as teens, have different requirements.
These eight basic parameters yield 16 distinct skin types, and give us the ability to precisely determine your skin's needs now, next year, and for your lifetime.
