Treat Your Skin to Custom Detailing


My unique skin: I have a medium to dark complexion that is “combination/oily” airing on the oily side but can dry out rapidly with the use of harsh products. My pores are also fairly large and easily clogged. Living in the humid South Florida climate only exacerbates the problem.


My unique problem: I am far from the only person suffering from oily skin, but my skin’s genetic profile is entirely unique. Thus, the products that may work for my skin may not work for yours, and vice versa. Luckily, Previse skin care recognizes this truth and has launched an online test to diagnose your distinct skin profile and needs.


Based on my answers, Previse determined that I am skin type #5 and recommended carefully selected products to address my higher levels of melanin and surface oil. The cleanser, serum and moisturizer all incorporated tea tree oil to even out my skin.


The process was simple; I used all three products morning and evening as directed. My skin felt clean without becoming too tight or stripped of moisture as it often does when using other astringent products. After a month of use, I noticed my skin’s previously overactive sebum production has started to regulate itself. While my skin is not completely normal, I do not use nearly as many oil absorbing wipes as I did in the past.


Pros: Customized. Gentle. Works!

Cons: Not available in convenience stores.


How to Buy: Prices vary;  previsecare.com
