10 Reasons I’m Grateful I Discovered My Baumann Skin Type

For years, I struggled with my skin, wasting countless hours and dollars on products that never seemed to work. I watched enviously as friends raved about their holy grail skincare routines, wondering why those same bestselling products left my skin irritated and broken out. I’d wake up with sandpaper-like bumps on my forehead, a shiny complexion, and a sinking feeling that I’d never crack the code on my problematic skin type.

But everything changed when I discovered the Baumann Skin Type Quiz. Developed by renowned Dermatologist Dr. Leslie Baumann, this scientifically-based quiz goes beyond the simplistic “dry, oily, combination” skin types to identify 16 unique skin profiles. I took the quiz and found out I’m a Baumann Skin Type 7, also known as OSPW (Oily, Sensitive, Pigmented, Wrinkle-Prone).

Finally, I understood why those one-size-fits-all routines didn’t work for me – my skin type needed a customized approach. Using the Regimen Builder tool on SkinTypeSolutions.com, I crafted a personalized skincare routine with dermatologist-recommended products tailored to my OSPW skin. I started with the basic 3-product routine, and the results have been life-changing.

Here are 10 reasons I’m so grateful I discovered my Baumann Skin Type:

Personalized Skincare Regimen:

With products curated for my oily, sensitive, hyperpigmented, and wrinkle-prone skin, I’m finally giving my skin exactly what it needs. No more guessing games or wasted money on mismatched products.

Avoidance of Irritating Ingredients:

I now know to steer clear of certain sunscreens, hyaluronic acid serums, and other common irritants that were triggering my sensitivity and breakouts. My skin has never been calmer.

Visible Improvements in Skin Health:

Since starting my OSPW regimen, the texture and tone of my skin has transformed. The bumps have disappeared, oil is under control, and I’m glowing for all the right reasons.

Access to Expert Advice:

SkinTypeSolutions.com is a treasure trove of dermatologist-backed info and advice. I’m constantly learning more about caring for my unique skin straight from the experts- (including Dr. Baumann herself who answers comments in the blogs!)

Empowering Education:

Understanding my skin on a scientific level has given me so much confidence. I’m no longer intimidated by the skincare aisle – I know how to scan for ingredients that will work for my OSPW skin.

Skin Twin Reviews:

The “Reviews by Skin Type” feature is a game changer. I can filter product reviews from people with my exact skin type, taking the guesswork out of what will work for me.

Personalized Shopping:

With my Skin Type 7 icon next to the products that suit me, I feel like I have a dermatologist guiding my skincare shopping. It’s a shortcut to a perfectly curated routine.

Budget-Friendly Options:

I love that I can choose between a basic 3-step routine or upgrade to a more comprehensive regimen. There are products at every price point, so I can adapt my routine to my budget.

Joining the Conversation:

The SkinTypeSolutions.com community is filled with skincare enthusiasts just like me. I love reading and writing reviews, sharing what has and hasn’t worked for my OSPW skin to help others with the same challenges.

Skin Type Pride:

Who knew I’d ever feel proud of being an “OSPW”? Sharing my skin type on social media has connected me with a wonderful community and sparked so many great conversations.

Since discovering my Baumann Skin Type, the compliments have been rolling in. Friends, family, even strangers have complimented my radiant skin. But more than that, it’s the confidence and peace of mind I’ve gained that I’m most grateful for. I no longer dread waking up to embarrassing forehead bumps or feel self-conscious about my skin. My skin isundercontrol and it feels amazing.
