We developed the VU product line to address most skin types and one skin condition often mistaken as a skin type: dehydrated skin. Knowing where your skin fits within these segments will guide you toward products that perform better. To help you determine your skin type, we present two methods to ensure that VU’s unique formulations work together for your optimal skin repair and care:
A little more involved; however, this method will give you a deeper understanding of your skin type.
- Cleanse your face thoroughly with a mild, sulphate-free cleanser like our Cleansing Gel or Cleansing Foam, and then pat dry gently.
- Do not apply any additional skin care products like moisturizers, serums or treatments for 30 minutes.
- Now, examine your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead for shiny or parched areas.
Feels smooth without signs of flaking or oiliness.
Feels tight and dehydrated.
Very Dry Skin
Has dry, flaky areas in addition to skin tightness.
Combination Skin - Oily
Usually has an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and is normal everywhere else. Oily areas may exhibit enlarged pores, signs of breakouts and blackheads.
Combination Skin - Dry
Usually has an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and is dry everywhere else. Oily areas may exhibit enlarged pores, signs of breakouts and blackheads.
Looks shiny, may feel slick to the touch and has frequent breakouts.
This is a temporary skin condition where skin is lacking water and often mistaken for a dry or oily skin type. Dehydrated skin results from environmental irritants and/or internal body malfunctions like side effects from medication, poor diet and smoking. Most VU products fight dehydrated skin.
We recommend finding your natural skin type and using any of recommended regimens from My Regimen Builder. Because the roots of skin dehydration can vary so widely, you may need some further adjustment in your regimen for best results.
