If you had…

10-17 points: You like to take whatever you do to this max – and that includes your beauty routine. Whether it’s a four-hour morning ritual that involves layers and layers of cream or a desire to get a deep tan as soon as the warm weather hits, you enthusiastically embrace anything you believe will improve your appearance. You need to watch out that you don’t get sucked in by fads or ads.

18-24 points: Bronzer. Toner. Loofah. These terms may well be Greek for all you know. You have a lot of interests, but exfoliating isn’t one of them. You’re lucky if you can muster up the energy it takes to wash your face before you go to bed. Okay, it’s great that you aren’t obsessed with your looks, but caring for your skin is critical. It’s a health issue as well as a beauty issue. That’s especially true when it comes to using sunscreen. Sun damage, even at an early age, can cause skin cancer later on. Set up a simple skin care routine that you can stick to.

25-30 points: You’re a three-square-meal kind of girl. And your beverage of choice? Water, naturally. Your approach to skin care is equally balanced. You know it’s important to wash your face twice a day and keep your skin hydrated with moisturizer. Keep up the good work, but don’t give yourself a hard time if you miss a spot of SPF. Nobody’s perfect.
