4 Types of Skin: Which One Describes You?

Your skin is unique and reflects your true nature—just like everything else about you!

Picture yourself in front of the mirror.

You lean in close, and you look at it again: a flaw in your skin that you just don’t love. Maybe you zero in on those lines by your eyes. Or blotchy cheeks. Or a pesky blemish. There are lots of reasons you judge your skin too harshly, but here’s the big one…

The beauty industry shows only one kind of skin as the standard of beauty for everyone. Tiny pores. Even skin tone. Porcelain features. Those qualities are just not the reality for most women. And when we don’t measure up, we tend to blame ourselves.

I used to think my appearance was flawed. For most of my life, I didn’t even feel beautiful.

But wait—your skin is more beautiful than you give it credit for!

The truth is, there are 4 Types of beauty—and 4 Types of skin.

Just like your natural movement expresses itself in many ways according to your Energy Type, your Type of skin has unique qualities and tendencies as well.

Many skin care products try to eliminate those tendencies. But when you work with your Type of skin, rather than against it, you have healthier, happier skin.

Here are a few quick tips for each Type of beauty:

Type 1: Clear, Youthful Skin

Type 1 skin has a random, animated quality to it. That means things are moving! This Type of skin tends to have a combination of oily and dry spots that don’t always stay in the same place. Pores are medium to large in size.

  • Tendencies to manage: red, blotchy skin tone and persistent, light blemishes.
  • Tendencies to embrace: your skin has a brightness and a freshness about it. You’ll always tend to look youthful, no matter how old you get!

My suggestion for Type 1 skin:

The Skin Brightening Serum from my Anti-Aging Line will be your #1 go-to to reduce blotchiness and redness. This serum evens your skin tone and reduces discoloration. It will brighten, freshen, and rejuvenate while hydrating your skin.

Type 2: Soft, Relaxed Skin

Type 2 skin has a softened quality of complexion. Your features naturally move downward, so you may notice more hooded eyelids and skin that seems to drape over the bone. Pores are medium to medium-small in size.

  • Tendencies to manage: a loss of elasticity in your skin.
  • Tendencies to embrace: everything is softened, even your fine lines. As long as you care for its sensitivities, Type 2 skin will tend to age with a natural elegance.

My suggestions for Type 2 skin:

The Eye Corrector Serum from my Anti-Aging Line will be your biggest helper. When paired with the jade roller, this serum helps move out the inflammation.

Another must-have product: Is the Wrinkle Recovery Serum, which encourages cell turnover and tightens up your skin. But make sure you use it with the Face Smoothing Exfoliator to help remove the dead skin cells, making way for the new ones!

Type 3: Active, Textured Skin

Type 3 skin has more texture. You’ll notice deeper facial lines and creases in this skin, no matter your age. Your skin expresses more movement. Pores are medium to medium-large.

  • Tendencies to manage: hyper-pigmentation, cystic acne, deeper lines that can become exaggerated. Another issue is the loss of volume in our skin, due to a loss of collagen. This means our skin looks both sunken and dull.
  • Tendencies to embrace: your facial lines! They’re not wrinkles. Type 3 women of all ages tend to have deeper and even multiple smile lines that give them a dynamic look. I have Type 3 skin, and I love it is an expression of the woman I am.

My suggestions for Type 3 skin:

You’re going to want every single product in my Anti-Aging Skincare Line. But the biggest player for you will be the Collagen Peptides Powder which restores volume and helps with elasticity. Add a scoop of it to your water or coffee each morning to make it easy.

The second important product for you will be the Skin Brightening Serum because of vitamin C. It will help even out the colors in your skin.

Every single night, don’t forget to use the Wrinkle Recovery Serum to help with your cell turnover while you sleep. Follow up with the Face Smoothing Exfoliator first thing in the morning to remove the dead skin cells.

Type 4: Porcelain, Still Skin

Type 4 skin tone tends to be even in its coloring and complexion. Pores are small, and barely visible. (When looking at arms’ length. Don’t be deceived by Photoshopped images that show non-existent pores. Every person’s skin has pores if you zoom in close.)

  • Tendencies to manage: dry skin. Any imbalance tends to show up in all-or-nothing extremes.
  • Tendencies to embrace: the even, porcelain quality of your skin. Without fail, the women who appear in skin care advertising have balanced Type 4 skin.

My suggestions for Type 4 skin:

Use the Face Smoothing Exfoliator first thing in the morning to remove dead skin cells, followed up by the Skin Brightening Serum combined with the Eye Corrector Serum.

In the evening, use the Wrinkle Recovery Serum (also combined with the Eye Corrector Serum!) to bump up your cell turnover while you sleep.
