Custom Skin Care

The new rage in cosmetics: skin care that is personalized for your own skin issues.

What? Your face is not just dry, oily or combination. Your skin needs are constantly changing depending on the season, the hormonal cycle and a number of other factors. That’s why your skin care should adapt to these needs.

How? This revolutionary approach to skin care might have started in Europe, but thanks to the ‘interwebs’, now you can just do a skin diagnostic online from anywhere. By answering a few questions, and detailing all your skin concerns from wrinkles, to redness and zits; you get a personalized skin analysis and a set of products specifically for you skin, based on those results, shipped to your home.

One thought on “Custom Skin Care

  1. Being natural is all the rage these days, so it is great to hear about a new online store that is being set up just to provide people with the ability to buy skin products. It will be opening soon so why not go along and see for yourself!
