6 different skin type personalities

We created 6 skin type personalities from a collection of the most common questions and comments we hear from YOU when we meet and talk about Miiko Skin Co!

Remember while you are REAL, these skin type personalities are not. It is more than likely that you will resonate with different personalities depending on the day, month, or year! So please just use them as guidelines to developing a routine with Miiko Skin Co. bitmoji man

"I am busy & beautiful! I don't put very much effort into my skin and I never have any issues with it!"

"I don't really have a skin care regime besides water and a washcloth.  My skin is not something I think about too often. I don't wear very much product (including makeup). My motto is simplicity."

"I LOVE the sun, and would probably consider sunbathing as my main method of skin care."

"My main concerns about my skin are the signs of sun damage and wrinkles."

"I want something that is EASY and SIMPLE that will increase the overall appearance of my skin from slightly weathered to a healthy glow."

    "I am sensitive to a lot of skin care products, so I am very smart about researching ingredients I use on my skin."

    "My skin is very sensitive, I react to almost everything that I put on it. My skin can be dry, sometimes I have irritations."

    "Rosacea is a skin condition that I have experienced."

    "I typically use water and a washcloth and maybe a moisturizer that I know will not cause a reaction. I hesitate to try anything new because of my past experiences with reactions. I don't wear much makeup for the same reason." 

    "I like to research a brand and product before I buy it, and if I can try a sample first that is the best case scenario."

      "Ugh. I am annoyed with my acne. When will it go away? I wish I could understand why my skin is so unpredictable"

      "I am not sure what my skin type is because I have some oily and dry patches and I am prone to breakouts at least once or twice a month. I have tried a number of different products and found a few that work for my skin (such as Proactive) but I would rather not buy this product for the rest of my life." 

      "I do wear makeup to cover up my blemishes and sometimes I forget to wash off my makeup at the end of the day, or I don't wash after the gym."

      "My acne is annoying and I am looking for something I can use regularly for a more consistent complexion."

      "I heard about Miiko Skin Co through a friend and am interested in finding a skin care routine/ product line that may provide results for my acne-prone skin naturally."

      "I am seeking skin salvation. My skin hurts, the irritation/inflammation is overwhelming at times. I am looking for any suggestions to help my condition"

      "I have stage 3-4 acne, I never experience relief. My skin is killing my confidence."

      "I have eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, or another auto-immune skin condition. My skin issues have led me to seek medical help from a doctor or dermatologist and I am currently taking an over the counter topical or internal prescription. I don't want to be taking this medication but it is necessary for the condition I am dealing with."

      "I have currently (or recently completed) chemo or radiation and my skin is in so much pain. I am looking for something to help."

      "I can't put any product of makeup on my skin due to my current condition and I am seeking any kind of advice on my natural skin care options."

              "Somehow I always end up sharing my experiences about things I love with my community! I am a story teller. Whether it is a recipe, a local business, a new activity, or a life hack I can't help but be passionate about exciting things! Obviously that includes skin care."

              "I like to have a regular skin care regime in the morning and evening and have tried various cleansers, toners, creams, etc..."

              "I bring skin care with me travelling, and notice a difference in my skin when I don't take care of it regularly. I prefer natural skin care and have researched some natural ingredients and essential oils. I have even tried making a product or two before, though I would prefer to buy them from a company I trust."

              "Ethics and values are important to me, I will only buy from a company that aligns with my values. If I find a company I believe in I find myself talking about them to friends and family and sharing their story just because I am passionate about them."

                Miiko Routines for the Story Tellers

                • Request a skin care consultation to share skin care needs and make sure Miiko Routine is well adapted for your lifestyle. 
                • Likely recommend the Glitter Face Line + Konjac Sponge. Unless you do not use soap, in which case we will only recommend the Glitter Face Oil and Konjac Sponge.
                • Follow suggested routines for the Annoyed by Acne or the Busy & Beautiful.
