Every girl is crazy about glowing skin with a perfect blend of innocence. It's not so tough to get clean and healthy skin if you follow a healthy daily routine. The first step is to know your skin type. Some are oily, some are dry but many find themselves in the middle with a combination of both. This is known as combination skin. The oily areas are concentrated in the T-zone of the face (forehead, nose and chin), while the dry skin is on the cheeks and jaw line. Cleansing, moisturizing and protecting combination skin can be difficult, as the oily and dry areas need different treatment and care. Thus, dealing with combination skin can be little tricky. Let's check out:
Cleanse with a gentle soap-free cleanser.
Exfoliate once per week with a finely textured scrub.
Moisturize lightly with a product that contains antioxidants.
Protect with a broad spectrum of sunblock daily with no less than 30 SPF, UVA and UVB protection.
• If you have excess oil production in some areas but dryness in others, your skin will benefit from a water-based moisturizer containing glycolic acid, tea tree oil, or zinc to address the oiliness. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramide, colloidal oatmeal, and/or apricot kernel oil to address the dryness.
• If your combination skin is prone to acne flare-ups as well as oil production, avoid ingredients such as butyl stearate, cinnamon oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, peppermint oil, octyl stearate, and palmitate.
• Be sure to wash makeup brushes and other applicators with an anti-bacterial wash or soap often.
• Cream blush is a better choice than powder for dry skin. So, it's a good option for those with combination skin because the cheeks are one of the dry areas.
• For foundation, a cream-to-powder formula is optimal for combination skin, as it's neither too greasy nor too dry.
• In addition to reapplying sunscreen throughout the day, make sure to keep skin well-moisturized during the winter months or excessively windy conditions.
• Avoid excessively greasy or fatty foods such as fast food French fries and other deep-fried favorites as they can cause acne breakouts.
If you have trouble finding the right skin care products or cosmetics to help balance your skin, don't hesitate to meet dermatologist.
