THE BEST ROUTINE FOR COMBINATION SKIN
Combination skin is not always easy to identify. Have you noticed that some parts of your skin are dry and other parts are oily? If this is the case, you might have combination skin. It can be tricky to take care of it well - finding the perfect balance between moisturising without creating excess oils.
We've got the tips you need to understand this type of skin and to find the best routine to adopt to take care of it.
Taking Care of Combination Skin
Cleanse & Moisturise
Thoroughly cleanse your face morning and evening with a gentle cleanser. It is an essential step to rid your skin of the oily film of sebum and any impurities that can become encrusted throughout the day. Especially if you wear makeup, you must remove makeup residue so that the pores do not clog. Be careful, however, never to "strip" your skin with products that are too abrasive or irritating, because the skin will tend to produce more sebum to defend itself.
Moisturising your skin is important so your skin is fresh and luminous. Just because parts of your face tend to be oily, doesn't mean they don't need their hydration fix. Good hydration allows the skin of your face to be protected from external aggressions and dryness.
Protecting your skin from the sun is very important to preserve beautiful young skin, as long as possible. In summer, when the skin is exposed to the sun, it tends to thicken, which makes it harder for the sebum to escape - you might even feel that your skin is drier.
Therefore, always apply SPF protection when you plan to be out in the sun. In addition, your skin will "age" better, the sun being the number one cause of premature skin ageing!
