The appearance of your skin is not influenced by external factors only, as skin is affected by diet, lifestyle and hormonal functions too. No one can therefore, ever say that their product will solve any skin care issue completely. At Mario Badescu Skin Care, we are simply saying that ours WILL improve the condition of the skin SIGNIFICANTLY.

Please note however, that the correct treatment of any skin condition, is subject to your skin type. And your skin type can also change from one stage of your life to another and it can even vary from one season to the next. We therefore recommend that you first set up a personal free consultation with a certified distributor close to you, before you buy any of the Mario Badescu Skin Care products.

For basic answers to some of your skincare issues, please feel free to refer to our FAQ section.


Oily skin tends to be thick, shiny with large pores clearly visible everywhere except around the eye and neck areas. Oil producing sebaceous glands can be overactive, producing more oil than is needed. Oily skin is a blessing in disguise since the abundance of oil helps keep moisture from evaporating from the epidermis, making it less prone to aging and wrinkling. On the other hand, clogged pores and blackheads are perennial problems for people with oily skin. Extra care is need to absorb excess oils to prevent surface dead skin cells from sticking together and clogging pores.


Dry Skin occurs when the oil glands do not produce a sufficient amount of oil to lubricate the skin properly. As a result, the skin becomes dehydrated. Dry skin is typically thin, dull and often flaky with fine lines. This type of skin is often the result of the aging process as the ability to retain moisture is diminished. Environmental factors such as exposure to the sun, wind and cold weather climates may exacerbate dry skin as well.


Combination skin may include a variety of skin types: dry, oily or normal areas on the skin that may vary seasonally or with environmental changes. Typically the areas around the cheeks, eye and neck are dry while the areas across the forehead and down toward the nose and chin are oily. This is the most common skin type which may require seasonal regimen adjustments to adapt to the changing needs of the skin.


Sensitive skin is typically a thin or a fine-textured skin. It usually reacts quickly to temperature changes from heat, cold or wind. Sensitive skin may be easily irritated, red, rashy, blotchy or prone to allergic reactions. It requires extra gentle care along with the use of mild products formulated to help calm and soothe skin. Sensitive skin can still fall into the oily, dry, problem or combination categories.
