Identifying Your Skin Type

The Fitzpatrick scale was developed in 1975 by Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, a Harvard dermatologist, as a way to classify the typical response of different skin types to ultraviolet light. This scale remains a recognized pigmentation tool for dermatologists, laser techs, and skin care professionals on how to treat different skin types.

Do you know where your skin falls on the Fitzpatrick Skin Scale? Let OTM Skin help you classify your skin and the best skin care options for your specific skin type as we change seasons from winter to spring.
