The Fitzpatrick Skin Type is a skin classification system first developed in 1975 by Thomas Fitzpatrick, MD, of Harvard Medical School. His skin classification system and its adaptations are familiar to dermatologists. In order to determine your Fitzpatrick Skin Type, our quiz measures two components (genetic disposition and reaction to sun exposure). Types range from the very fair (Type I) to the very dark (Type VI).
Please select your skin type:
1 (0-6 Points) | 2 (7-12 Points) | 3 (13-18 Points) | 4 (19-24 Points) | 5 (25-30 Points) | 6 (31+ Points)
