My skintype

Skin type

Dry on a technicality
(Skin feels dry and tight when washing with non-moisturizing products, before adding moisture back to it)

Temperate climate with four distinct seasons

Skin tone
Pale with a tendency to get freckles
Cool undertone
Fitzpatrick type II (I actually tan pretty well, hence the high score)
N 21

Skincare concerns
Sensitivity to a wide range of issues
  • Abrasive products
  • Aloe vera
  • Coconut oil (strong comedogenic effect)
  • Low tolerance to alcohols
  • Low tolerance to essential oils
  • Low tolerance to scents/perfume
  • Overhydration
  • pH outside normal skin pH range
  • Product leaving a texture behind after absorbing
  • Salicylic acid (Beta hydroxy acid or BHA)
  • Sea Buckthorn
  • Too heavy consistency (Provokes picking)
  • Too light consistency  (Causes dryness which prokoves picking)
  • Underhydration
Even if my skin doesn't react to a product, it can trigger my dermotillomania which makes me pick and mess up my skin until problems arise

The skin of aloe vera
(Aloe pressed with skin = Horrible, itchy reaction. Aloe pressed without skin = No problems)
Sea buckthorn
