Having spent nearly four decades working with skin it is these observations that have led us to believe that the long-held industry view of skin types does not identify with our personal experience of how the skin works and reacts to them. It is our belief that skin type based products in practice don't actually work. More often they contribute to creating the very type the product is chosen to alleviate it causes great confusion in practice with facial clients and from a therapist view can create a narrow treatment field.
Therefore, we have eliminated skin types from our vocabulary and instead focus on ingredients that enhance and benefit a variety of skin concerns. The results are a balanced well cared for skin with a beauty of its own regardless of age. That is not to say that the skin will not experience fluctuations but these are best treated as such and not as a type. The skin is a constantly changing organ and over its lifetime may well have experienced all of the so-called types. Skin needs to be treated from both within and without.
Our experience with essential oils makes us well aware of the benefits to the skin using natures active ingredients. We ask clients to choose by their sense of smell to see which products they are drawn to. This process is so much simpler and no less scientific than attempting to identify a skin by type. You will enjoy replenishing your products and making your choices intuitively by smell - Give it a try you and your skin will love the results!
