HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR SKIN TYPE

The first step in creating a personalized skincare routine is identifying your skin type. This will determine the daily steps to be taken and the proper products to use. The chart below should clearly outline where your skin fits in. Once you know which skin type you have, check out our Create Your Own Skincare Regimen Kit or Pre-Made Best Of Skincare Regimen Kits.


DRY AND SENSITIVE SKIN

Is your skin… Prone to inflammatory eruptions? Highly reactive to new products? Often sensitive, tight, and uncomfortable? Easily irritated by shaving?

It sounds like you have: Dry/Sensitive Skin

Prone to inflammatory eruptions. Highly reactive to new products. Often tight and uncomfortable. Easily irritated by shaving.

CLEANSE: Clean your face with a moisturizing gel or foaming cleanser. Make sure to avoid ordinary soaps, which tighten and dry the skin. Wet, lather, and rinse with the aid of warm water.

TONE: Using a cotton ball, gently apply a toner to remove remaining residue and to help better absorb a moisturizer.

MOISTURIZE: Generously apply a super-hydrating moisturizer. Steer clear of fragranced products.

EXFOLIATE: Once weekly, remove dead cells and unclog pores by using a gentle face scrub. For best results, mix this scrub with your face wash. Avoid delicate skin areas.

Grooming Lounge Mug Cleaner Face Wash

A gentle, everyday cleanser that removes grit and grime while preparing that mug for a great shave (or just a great day). Developed in our D.C. Barbershop and used within dozens of times daily, cleanser won't dry out or irritate the skin like regular soaps. Instead, it gently buffs away surface skin cells and helps uproot ingrown hairs. The real first step in any great shave, it's also valuable on those days when the razor is resting. Gentle enough for use both morning and night. Paraben and sulfate-free. It can double as an awesome body wash in a pinch.

Urth Face Scrub

Hands down the most unique and rewarding exfoliating experience around. Miracle scrub uses tropical sand-like microfine rice granules mixed into a soft mud to help expel nasty blackheads and impurities. Leaves the skin glowing and revitalized. Herbal extracts of Green Tea and Ginseng help detoxify and improve skin tone and texture, leaving the dermis extremely happy. Try this stuff - it will not disappoint. Also available in 2 oz. Paraben-free.

Grooming Lounge Mug Scrubber

This eep-cleansing and skin-smoothing facial exfoliator does away with oil, dirt, and dead skin, while improving your skin’s appearance and thwarting ingrown hairs/shaving irritation.

Baxter of California Herbal Mint Toner

Never forget the toner. You can improve your complexion and lock in moisture by swabbing some of this stuff across the deck (your face). Antioxidant green tea and vitamins C & E protect against free radicals. Mild witch hazel extract, cucumber, and peppermint oil balance skin tone.
