Ever look at those women with effortlessly blemish-free complexions and wonder what secret they are hiding? If you answered a resounding, “Yes,” you understand the perils of searching high and low for the perfect skin products. Add having combination skin, and now you’ve just joined an elite Olympic sport.
What is a combination of skin
Combination skin means some parts of your face overproduce oil, while other parts dry out quickly. You might use blotters to control a shiny T-Zone (the area of your face that includes your nose and forehead), while you dab moisturizer on your chin or cheeks to deal with flakiness and irritation. This skin type may also fluctuate between seasons and environment changes.
Challenges with combination skin
Trying out skincare products can be deceivingly tricky—the wrong moisturizer can cause breakouts and clogged pores. In contrast, some clarifying products and acne treatments can dehydrate the rest of your face. Having to purchase two different sets of products to deal with your combo skin may seem like your only solution, but instead, find products with natural ingredients with the perfect balance for combo skin is the alternative.
If this sounds like your struggle, Hype Hair has rounded up some top beauty products to moisturize and soothe your combination skin.
Applying your skincare products when they are cooler has many beneficial effects for combination skin. The cooling effect can feel great on the surface. It also helps treat inflamed, puffiness while soothing irritation.
Over-exfoliating combination skin can wreak havoc on the face by over-drying it. Depending on your specific skin, sticking with an exfoliation routine of 1 – 2 times a week can help to prevent your pores from becoming clogged by excess oil.
Use a gentle mask
Managing your combination skin can be a bit tricky. While dry patches occur, oily parts of your face can lead to acne and scarring. Using a gently face mask like our FACE Flora Detox Mask is a great option. Our gourmet experts have carefully combined Volcanic Ash Clay works to treat acne and balance the skin’s hydration. Our mask also purifies the skin while infusing its vitamins and recharging minerals. For those drier parts of the face, garden-fresh barley hydrates and brightens, leaving a light coat of moisture.
SPF is your BFF
Sunscreen is not optional. The sun’s damaging ultraviolet and UVB rays are responsible for nearly 90 percent of damage and aging, showing up on our faces. Exposure without proper protection can accelerate visible aging signs, such as wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, skin discoloration, and the loss of elasticity and moisture. For combination skin look for features that you need to look for broad-spectrum protection for equal protection against both UVA and UVB radiation.
