I have Type III skin!

The Fitzpatrick Skin Typing Test is used to classify skin types by how people react to sun exposure and is also used to enhance treatment for skin cancers.

Type III skin is “light olive” and seen for people with pretty much any eye and hair color but is most common for people with chestnut hair and hazel eyes. It is common among Mediterranian type Caucasians, and some Hispanics. People with Type III skin sometimes get “mild burns” and “gradually tan.”
