As you may know, there are five different skin types: normal, oily, dry, combination, and sensitive. Along with varying skin types come specific ways to properly care for your skin, which is crucial to your overall health. Luckily, all Make It Classy products are effective and healthy for anyone, regardless of skin type, thanks to all-natural plant-based ingredients.
Below are some key qualities of different skin types to help you determine into which category you fit, as well as some Make It Classy products that would provide suitable skincare.

As mentioned, Make It Classy has several products that rejuvenate, moisturize, and detoxify the skin and could be applied to any skin type, guaranteed to result in a healthier, smoother complexion. The only exception would be if you happen to be allergic to any of the plant-based ingredients included in the boxes.
However, every single ingredient is listed on the recipe card you get in your box, and since each box is a DIY project, you’re able to omit or substitute ingredients as you please. If you’re unsure about an ingredient you may potentially be allergic to, there are also instructions on how to properly patch test before applying the completed product to your skin. You can always contact our team before purchasing for more information on ingredients.
Make It Classy offers products such as a face mask, a body scrub, and rosewater to help get you started on a nontoxic skincare routine that leaves your skin looking and feeling healthier.
