Skincare Routine Options for Different Skin Types

We outlined how to generally layer your skincare products so the next step is selecting specific products for your routine based on skin concern or skin type. This is very subjective and can vary throughout the year as your skin is impacted by the environment, hormones, and other skin products. Refer to our articles to determine which skin type you may have and general products best suited for that skin type, such as dry skin, combination skin, and acne-prone skin.


There are several product combinations that can be used and the list will change as we continue to launch many exciting new products but below are basic routines for those creating a routine based on skin type:

Routines can also be built off skin concerns such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, redness, and more in collaboration with a dermatologist. General layering guidelines still apply but you want to look for actives or ingredients present in the products that cater to those skin concerns. Many of our products have been tested and evaluated by the National Eczema Association, National Rosacea Society, and National Psoriasis Foundation and awarded the associated seals. These seals indicate that the products are safe-for those with that specific skin condition and will not exacerbate symptoms. These seals are not used to treat the skin condition but act as a guide to products that are safe to use. Not all our products have been evaluated by these organizations and the lack of a seal does not necessarily indicate the product is not safe for that skin condition. These seals can help provide a loose guide to a routine.


There are other product combinations but below are example routines for those with specific skin conditions:

Skincare Routine for Rosacea:

  1. Gleanser Non-Drying Glycerin Cleanser

  2. Universal Skin Solution Hypochlorous Acid Spray

  5. Sun Barrier Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++ for day use

  6. Skin Utility Ointment Multi-Purpose Skin Protectant or Skin Utility Balm Multi-Purpose Skin Protectant for night use

*Steps 1-5 were clinically tested as a routine on 33 patients diagnosed with rosacea and under the care of a dermatologist. A product was added on every week for a total of 6 weeks and by the end of the study patients noted a 63% improvement in visual facial redness, 74% improvement in facial blushing severity, 69% improvement in blushing frequency, and 62% improvement in skin congestion.

Stick with your routine to see the most beneficial results. If you decide to build your routine to address specific skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine line and wrinkles, or dullness then follow the general skincare layering guidelines and look for products that call out these skin concerns or contain ingredients known to address these concerns. Everyone’s skin is different and it can be a matter of trial and error to find what works for you. And due to climate, location, time of year, aging, etc. your routine will need to adjust with you for continued benefits.
