Skin Type #2
Oily / Combination / Occasional Breakouts /
Combination, blemish-prone skin in need of anti-aging requires a careful blend of non-drying, pore-clearing exfoliants with hydrating antioxidants and skin-brightening botanicals. This will bring a perfect balance to your skin. Ingredients like natural Elderberry, stable Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Salicylic Acid will reveal clear, healthy and radiant skin with fewer visible lines and wrinkles. The result? Beautiful skin by Renée Rouleau.

Harsh Products Make Skin Tight, Irritated, or Sensitive
Naturally, harsh products can cause tightness, but this is someone that feels like they get tight skin easily and they have to be careful about what products they use because products have left their skin irritated and tight in the past.
Needs Hydration Without Heavy Oils
This is someone who has to be careful with what they use due to a history of more breakouts in the past. You may be having fewer breakouts now, but you still have to be mindful of what you use on your skin because you continue to get some clogged pores.
May Get Occasional Breakouts
You’re someone who gets breakouts occasionally, with “occasionally” meaning 1 or 2 breakouts a week but sometimes you can go several weeks without one or, if you’re a female, you may only get them once a month during your cycle. Essentially, you get breakouts occasionally or once in a while, but it’s not consistent or excessive.
Post-Blemish Dark Marks
Whenever you do get a blemish, you also get post-blemish dark or red marks that linger for a while. These aren’t from picking or new blemishes, because obviously you don’t want to pick at them and make them worse, but just lingering marks.
Wants to Keep Skin Healthy and Smooth, Concerned About Aging
You want to keep your skin healthy and smooth, but you’re also concerned about aging. You might still get breakouts now and again, but you’re starting to think about preventative measures and creating an environment in the skin where it can age gracefully.
May Have Hyperpigmentation
You may have hyperpigmentation as it relates to brown spots, or you may be genetically more prone to getting brown spots and freckles. You don’t have to have hyperpigmentation to be a Skin Type 2, but if you do, you could be.
20 to 35 Years Old
Most Skin Type 2s are between the ages of 20 and 35 because you still produce oil and get occasional breakouts. This is not a hard and fast rule but is what we typically see as far as age range goes.
I (Renée) was a Skin Type 2 for many years and just recently changed to a Skin Type 6. I was still getting occasional breakouts, and that’s why I stuck with the Skin Type 2 products, but now I’ve switched over to Skin Type 6 because breakouts are behind me now, thankfully.
We also offer personalized skin consultations with our in-house estheticians. It’s called My Skin Rx and you can do it via video or over the phone. It allows one of our estheticians to make sure you have the right skin type and determine the best game plan for your skin so you can be on your way to your #reneerouleauglow!
