Another quick reference guide by Florence Barrett-Hill to help you learn the art of professional skin analysis, and communicate your ﬁndings with your clients.
The Visual Skin Analysis Diagnostic Indicator Guide has been developed to extend the visual analysis and consultation techniques for users of the Pastiche Method of skin analysis and other techniques that categorize each skin condition under the diagnostic characteristics of texture, colour and secretions.
There is no doubt that we all ﬁnd it easier to learn skin analysis when there are visual and diagnostic indicators to assist us, and to this end, the diagnostic indicators in this guide are presented in order of what would be encountered most frequently when viewing the skin, or measured with diagnostic equipment.
In addition to the visual evidence of what to look for when analysing skin, a simple explanation of how each leading cause will inﬂuence or aggravate each skin condition, is provided.

With this extended information, our goal is to provide a condensed and easy-to-use reference with plenty of visual clues that will beneﬁt all skin treatment related professions; including beauty therapists, clinical aestheticians, students, teachers or those working in medical aesthetics and aligned vocations.
