Baumann Skin Type 10: ORNT | The Best Skin Type: Rarest and Healthiest
If you are a ORNT- congratulations! You have the best skin type! We call this Perfect 10 Skin. This skin type is the rarest and healthiest skin type.
The ORNT Skin Type is Oily, Resistant, No uneven pigment, and Tight. Your healthy skin has no barriers to skin health. Also referred to as Perfect 10 Skin. ORNT is what is considered to be “normal” skin and is uncommonly seen in my dermatology practice. ORNT skin is easy to manage, and your skincare regimen is aimed at keeping your skin the way it is.
What if I do not think I am oily- my skin results are wrong?
Our definition of oily skin refers to how much sebum (oil) your sebaceous glands make. Normal skin makes a sufficient amount of sebum to protect the skin. That is why you are considered oily- because you make enough oil. There are two subsets: oily (normal) and very oily. if you do not think you are oily- you are in the oily/ normal subset.
Once you try the recommended skin care regimen and experience amazing results, you will realize that you were wrong about your skin type - 80% of people are!
Why is the ORNT Skin Type the Best and Healthiest Skin Type?
ORNT is the ideal best skin type because it has no barriers to skin health. You are under the age of 30 and have no dryness, inflammation, or dyspigmentation problems. You have healthy lifestyle habits that lower your risk of skin aging. We have data on over 300,000 people from around the world and your skin type is by far the rarest.
What Are My Skin Care Goals for my Healthy Skin Type?
The goal for your perfect skin type is to keep it the best skin type. Your skin care routine will be designed to maintain healthy, clear skin rather than to treat existing skin concerns, as most ORNTs do not struggle with common conditions like acne, dryness, or accelerated aging.
Don't use skin care products or get skin treatments that you do not need. Less is more for your skin type.
What Are the Cons of Having the ORNT Skin Type?
The ORNT skin type is called “Perfect 10 skin” because it does not have any cons or barriers to skin health. However, it is still important to take great care of your skin and continue wearing sunscreen and avoiding excessive sun exposure in order to maintain smooth, healthy, youthful-looking skin.
What Are the Best Skincare Ingredients for ORNT Skin?
Though most ORNTs produce just enough oil to keep their skin healthy without causing shininess, some may produce more oil than needed. For this reason, skincare ingredients that help to control excessive oil on the skin and keep the skin free of clogged pores and acne are the best ingredients for Baumann Skin Type 10.
