Probably 90% of the questions I get from our customers are about "what they should do for their skin type". There is relevance there and also a BIG gap. The relevance is, yes... we each have factors like extra oil, dry skin, sensitivity in various forms and doses, etc. The gap is that none of us falls into the narrow category that a typical skin-type diagnosis offers. Same goes for age - just because you are a certain age doesn't mean you need products for that age. Nor does it mean you cannot share the products with people of other ages. Don't want to share the products because you love them so much? Well, that's another issue entirely and we totally understand! :)
The skin's needs are based on a variety of factors that make up your life experience, your lifestyle, your stress level, your diet, your community of friends and lovers (how much oxytocin you are getting), your mental health and the climate you live in.
Here I have created a simple "copy / paste" quiz that you can import into a document and print or just work out online to help guide you to some of the best answers for your skin. If you complete the quiz and email it to me, I will reply with suggestions for a routine that has the best chance of working for you. If you are a parent you are welcome to do this on behalf of a child or teen. Or if you want to have a friend or loved one do the quiz, you could give it to them with a gift card from us as a surprise or treat.
Another cool detail! We are working on more body care, eg. body wash and a body butter. If you are interested in these items, please add that in the NOTES area at the end of the quiz.
I am very excited to have a personal conversation with you about your skin. Beautiful, natural skin is available to everyone. The journey starts today.
