The Fitzpatrick scale tells us a lot about the varying shades of skin... 1-3 on the scale are lighter skin tones while 4-6 on the scale pertains to darker skin tones.

Cleansing & moisturizing daily is vital for everyone as well, & Vitamin C & Retinoids help keep skin bright & glowy while diminishing hyperpigmentation.
