You know your skin type is important to choosing and customizing your skincare routine, but have you ever given any thought to how your personality might play into your beauty habits and concerns? Believe it or not, your personality has a bigger effect than just who you are or are not compatible with on Tinder.

How your Myers-Briggs personality affects your go-to skincare

When you really think about, our personalities affect how we behave and because of that, also have an influence on the habits we build in the various areas of our lifestyle. Including skincare. So, to shed some light on the matter, here is how your personality type affects your skincare and beauty habits and what products you might go searching for. Enjoy!

ISTJ (Introvert, Sensing, Thinking, Judging) - You're All About Practical Skincare

Don't think this means that you're a judgmental person when it comes to skincare—not in a bad way. When it comes to making decisions, you're very practical and logical. You're not one for impulse buys, you like to make sure the product will do its job before you committed to it long term. You like to keep your routine as simple as possible. Excess is definitely not practical, so double-duty products are great for you!

A fantastic double-duty product for you is Decorté Cream Blusher! Whenever you're in a pinch, this product can quickly be swept over the eyes and lips for a soft monochromatic look!

ISFJ (Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, Judging) - You're More of the Feel-Good Practicality Type

When you're looking for the next product you'll fall in love with you're reasonable, but in the end, you make sure it feels right. Even if all the right ingredients are there if your heart isn't screaming 'I love this!' you're not going to take the plunge. When it comes to skincare you want to have an instant feel-good experience while also reaping the benefits from the product long-term.

Looking for a nice refresher to that beauty cabinet? Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist is a fantastic match for you! With rose, sage, and orange blossom, this divinely fine spritz will renew your senses and revitalize and hydrate your skin for long-lasting moisture.

INFJ (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging) - You'll Know It When You See It

Your intuitive nature makes for an interesting shopping experience. You don't want just any moisturizer or serum. Part of the way you find the right product for you is to test out potential candidates before you fully decide whether or not you want to invest. However many tries it takes you, you'll know the perfect product when you see it.

When your skin feels blissfully hydrated is a sign you've found your go-to skincare product. SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator wraps the skin in a veil of long-lasting hydration. With five forms of hyaluronic acid, this formula works with the skin to help its own production of hyaluronic acid, prevent dehydration and the lines that come from that lack of moisture.

INTJ (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging) - You'll Second Guess Your Final Choice

When shopping for the perfect product, even after you land on the one that you're positively meant for you, you'll start overthinking it. You'll come up with any reason why there's a better product out there. Maybe you think it's too expensive, maybe you think you want a serum instead of moisturizer...or maybe an eye cream? Even if you do buy it, you'll take a couple weeks to really settle into your decision.

You just need to be assured there are multiple benefits! Smooth out an uneven complexion with Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment enriched with lactic acid that gently exfoliates the skin to even out skin's textures. Liquorice and lemongrass extracts work together to help boost circulation and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

ISTP (Introvert, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving) - You Go for What Seems Good in the Moment

Your spontaneous and adventurous nature can sometimes make shopping for the perfect product a little challenging. You'll see five different things you love and want to try all of them! Of course, this isn't reasonable, so you'll go with what you think is the best choice at the moment.

Maybe you really like this exfoliator that you found, but you are having some trouble with dry patches, so you decide to go with a hydrating treatment like SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel that provides the skin with long-lasting hydration and helps to replenish essential nutrients in the skin and giving you a healthy overall glow.

ISFP (Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, Perceiving) - You'll Change Your Mind After a Week

You might not start second-guessing your investment choices straight from the get-go, but you'll start wondering if your product of choice is really making a difference even though it's only been a week. You might worry a little too much when it comes to trying new products, but stop fretting! All good things take time!

You need a product that does its job, but also doesn't move at a snail's pace. A great product for you is a moisturizer like SkinCeuticals A.G.E Interrupter. Blueberry extract works to reverse the damage done to skin due to glycation when glucose molecules stick to collagen and elasticin and cause them to lose their ability to function normally.

INFP (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving) - You're More Patient With New Products

You've got the mindset to understand that you're not going to see a miracle overnight, nor would you expect that. However, you do like to make sure that it feels good on your skin from the start. You're not one for uncomfortable beginnings, especially when thinking in the long-term.

Even if you are patient, you like to see your product working, which makes This Works Evening Detox Clay Mask a perfect addition to your night routine. With Kaolin Clay and Malachite, this mask effectively draws out dirt, oil and pollutants without stripping the skin of its nutrients.

INTP (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinking, Perceiving) - You Do Your Own Thing

Trends don't interest you too much. You'll take a look at what's happening around you, but if it doesn't tickle your fancy, you're known to do whatever you want in the end. You know that the best way to treat your skin is you listen to what it needs, rather than what the magazines are saying the latest craze is.

You know sun protection is important no matter what the tabloids say making SkinCeuticals Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 a good match for you. A product with a good SPF level is practical but also not too complex. You get the functionality without "fancy" getting in the way.

ESTJ (Extrovert, Sensing, Thinking, Judging) - You Overthink Everything Before You Decide

You like to think out loud. So you may go around asking others what they think about certain products, but before you buy, you'll spend way too much time making your decision. For you, a good place to start is the tried and true items that everyone loves, this will help you get an idea of what you like in a product and where you want to go from there.

A good antioxidant is a perfect addition to any skin routine, SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Combination Antioxidant Treatment is perfect for promoting a smoother, brighter, more youthful-looking complexion. With a potent Vitamin C that helps protect skin from free radicals and targets the first signs of aging, this paraben-free product is also designed to improve skin's elasticity with continued use.

Even with a busy schedule, you still want to look your best. Especially in these warm summer months, having those nice airbrushed legs is a fabulous way to add umpf to your look.

You have an image in your mind of how you want your skin to look, then you go after whatever will help you achieve that. Perfection is key in your mind. If you're not completely satisfied with a product, it's not the one for you.

Preventative skin care is a big part of your game. Drawing out those impurities is important to you to protect your skin from as much damage as possible. A clay mask is a favorite for those in this arena. DermaDoctor Kakadu C Amethyst Clay Detox Mask contains a powerfully potent form of Vitamin C that fights free radical damage and protects against environmental aggressors while the Kakadu Clay draws out impurities and pollutants without drying out the skin or stripping it of natural oils.

ENTJ (Extrovert, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging) - Planning Ahead is Your Routine

You like to keep your skin looking in tip-top shape, who doesn't? You know your skin changes over time so your choices for your routine need to reflect that! Implementing a good moisturizer or serum with anti-aging benefits is the best bet for you.

A fantastic addition to add to your routine is SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum. Combining two formulas, TNS Recovery Complex and APS Corrective Complex, this serum works to neutralize free radical damage and lock in moisture, providing age-defying benefits for a supple, youthful complexion.
