Pour Moi addresses skin care routines based on climate instead of skin type or age.

Skincare customized for the climate where you live

Have you tried what seems like every skincare product to try to improve your complexion, only to be disappointed by the progress you see in the mirror? Perhaps you've approached skin care based on whether your skin is oily, dry, or sensitive. Think about why your skin is the way it is. Could there be another factor?

Now is the time to redefine skin care so that it's based on your zip code. Pour Moi is the first and only company in the world to earn a patent on Climate-Smart Skincare. Their approach to skin care, backed by years of research, accounts for the various climate zones in the world and addresses the unique problems associated with each one. For example, in the marine climate zone here in the Seattle area, the combination of below-average temperatures and above-average humidity can block your pores while also telling your body to decrease its natural oil production. The result is skin that feels both greasy and dry. Cloud cover and adjacent bodies of water are also common, which means your skin is susceptible to harmful sun rays that are magnified by the clouds and reflected by the water.

In addition to their climate-specific day creams, Pour Moi also offers a signature three-step system that centers around four different products. As you may have guessed, the same three-step system doesn't apply to everybody. It's customized based on the region where you live!

Pour Moi supplies four products for you to use in three steps of your skin care process.

Step 1: QUENCH your skin with the liquid hydrator.

Step 2: DRENCH your skin with the smart serum.

Step 3: ROTATE between the two different day creams you'll receive to lock in the anti-aging ingredients. The rotation is easy and will be chosen based on the daily weather in the Pacific Northwest. Simply match the day cream to align with your local forecast of the day. Other packs of the three-step system rotating system, such as the ones for mountain and high desert climates, will instruct you to rotate based on elevation.

The quenching and drenching steps are necessary before the third step because your skin has to be prepared for the day creams you apply. Otherwise, the creams will stay on the top layer of skin and won't be absorbed enough to do its regenerating magic.

Pour Moi's skin care methods were formed when founder Ulli Haslacher observed her father's work as an outdoor powder coating painter. She realized the paint would perform differently based on the different climates and discovered it was because the climate was affecting the surface underneath the paint. Haslacher applied that concept to skin care, leading to the groundbreaking skincare products you can now enjoy.

Stop throwing skincare products at your face and seeing what sticks. The answer to your skincare problems is right outside your door and at You'll find night creams, serums, balancers, masks, day creams, and more, all of which are meant to treat and rejuvenate your skin based on where you live.
