The Best Skin Typing System to Prescribe Skin Care Routines

A great skin typing system needs to constantly evolve with new data. The best skin typing systems rely on doctors independent from pharmaceutical companies to formulate objective recommendations on skin health.

Many “skin typing systems” are available, but for a skin typing system to be considered scientifically valid and to provide reproducible results, the skin typing classification system should meet the following criteria:

  • Diagnosis of skin type is made with a scientifically validated measurement instrument.

  • The instrument must be shown to give the same results when used by different dermatologists.

  • If self-administered, the instrument must be shown to give the same results when self-administered as compared to when given by a dermatologist.

  • The instrument should be tested on various ages, genders, ethnicities, and geographic locations.

There are 2 main skin typing systems used by dermatologists, aestheticians, and medical providers to discuss skin type; the Fitzpatrick Skin Type and the Baumann Skin Type®.  These skin typing systems are not mutually exclusive because they measure different things.

What Can You Learn from It?

The Baumann Skin Types system isn't just a classification tool—it's a window into the details of your skin. Each skin type comes with its own set of characteristics, vulnerabilities, and preferences, impacting the way it interacts with the environment and responds to skin care products. By identifying your skin type, you gain valuable insights into its specific needs and concerns, empowering you to make informed decisions that optimize its health and vitality.

Understanding The Baumann Skin Types System

The Baumann Skin Types system explores 16 distinct skin personalities. Let's take a closer look at each.  Your skin type is determined by the presence or absence of 4 barriers to skin health.  Your skin care routine is designed to target the underlying barriers to skin health that are affecting your skin's health and appearance. Your regimen will target all of the following skin issues you may have:


Excess sebum



Skin aging

Our goal is to help you improve your skin type by using the best skin care products layered in the proper order in your custom skin care routine.

What do the 4 letters in the Baumann Skin Typing System mean?

S= Sensitive Skin or R= Resistant Skin

W= Wrinkle-prone or T= Tight unwrinkled skin & healthy habits

Your 4-letter skin type designation code, called the Baumann Skin Type Indicator, takes one letter from each section above together to represent your Baumann Skin Type on the skin type chart. 

For example, DSNW is dry, sensitive, has no uneven pigment, and is wrinkle-prone. 

How to Find Your Custom Skin Care Routine for Your Baumann Skin Type

Once you know your Baumann Skin Type, you will be given a custom skincare routine with exact product recommendations in a step-by-step morning and evening skincare routine. 

We will recommend our favorite product for each step of the routine, but each step has substitutes in case you have preferences or specific price ranges. 

By identifying your unique skin personality through this quiz, you gain valuable insights into its specific needs and concerns. Armed with this knowledge, we can help you tailor your skincare routine with targeted products and treatments to get the results you want.

Skin Type Quiz-Approved Skincare Brands for Every Skin Type

You’re probably eager to know which skincare aligns perfectly with your skin's needs. We can give you a curated list of products recommended specifically by Dr. Baumann for the various skin types. For example, here is my regimen for OSNW skin:

After completing your skin quiz, you will get an email with a suggested skincare routine.  These products are chosen based on what is recommended by Dr. Baumann and what I currently have in stock at Everglow.  Each one can be changed based on your brand preferences (she works with 40 different medical brands including SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals, LaRoche Posay, PCA, and many more),  price range, and ingredient preference.  As you can see, I like DermMade!  It is reasonably priced, with a 100-day money-back guarantee.  I stock several different medical brands, including ZO, which is not part of this program.  If you don’t see your email, just let me know and I can get it to you.  If the website needs a doctor code, ours is “EMA6”.  The STS website and Dr. Baumann's blog are a wealth of information I highly recommend looking at!  

If you are specifically interested in only ZO (Zein Obagi), they have their quiz at ZO Skin Health ( to help you get the right products in their system.  Dr. Baumann uses the older Obagi line, but not the latest ZO at this time.
