What’s Your Skin Type? Fitzpatrick Scale

Type 1: Light/Pale White: Always burns, never tans

Type 2: White/Fair: Usually burns, tans with difficulty

Type 3: Medium/ White to Olive: Sometimes mild burn, gradually tans to olive

Type 4: Olive/ Moderate Brown: Rarely burns, tans with ease to moderate brown

Type 5: Brown/Dark Brown: Very rarely burns, tans very easily

Type 6: Black/Very Dark Brown to Black: Never burns, tans very easily, dark pigmentation

Based on your type, our NHL Aesthetician customize skincare solutions and products for vibrant, youthful skin.

How Long Does it Take for a Wrinkle to Form? 

Wrinkles are creases, folds, or ridges in the skin that form over time. Typically wrinkles appear as people get older, but they can also develop from stress, weight loss, dehydration, medication, smiling and frowning.

Is Your Skin Dry or Dehydrated? 

Many people over the age of 35 are chronically dehydrated and start developing wrinkles as a result.

  • Dry Skin: Lacks sebum (oils) and is mostly genetic. Your skin feels dry all-over but particularly in the hands, legs, and scalp and is constant, especially during winter. Lipid-rich products such as thick creams and ointments work best.
  • Dehydrated Skin: Experienced by any skin type, your skin isn’t getting enough water causing it to feel oily and dry and can come and go. Your skin needs water-rich products such as toners and hydrating serums.

What causes acne? 

Acne is a skin condition that is triggered by several factors. Most of us throughout our life will experience whiteheads, blackheads or pimples that usually appear on the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders. Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria.

Top Reasons for Acne

  • Processed carbohydrates turn into sugar and sugar raises sebum product. Ex. Foods high in wheat, flour, starches, and gluten.
  • Dirty towels and toiletries harbor bacteria and contribute to breakouts.
  • Over exfoliation increases inflammation and dries out your skin resulting in overproduction of oil.
  • Hormones increase androgens and testosterone stimulate oil product.
  • Genetics greatly determine skin type. i.e. if your parents grew up with acne you may inherit the gene.
  • Hormones in dairy trigger a response in the body to produce more sebum.
  • Dirty cell phone transferring bacteria to the skin.
