THE FITZPATRICK SCALE
The system classifies skin type according to the amount of pigment your skin has and your skin’s reaction to sun exposure. This is helpful when deciding what treatments will best suit your skin.

2: white skin, often with blue eyes, burns and does not tan easily
3: fair skin with brown eyes and brown hair, burns first then tans
4: light brown skin, dark eyes, and dark hair, burns a little and tans easily
5: brown skin, dark eyes, and dark hair, easily tans to a darker color and rarely burns
6: dark brown or black skin, dark eyes, and dark hair, never burns but tans darker
