Combined face skin combines twotype - dry and fat. It has dry areas on cheeks and temples and fatty and porous on the forehead, nose and chin (T-zone). Often this combination gives the skin an uneven shade. In addition, it is very difficult to look after. But nothing is impossible! Regular care and properly selected products for combination skin can work miracles. Facial treatment with combination skin, however, like for any other, includes 3 stages. Let us dwell on each of them in more detail.
It is necessary to clean the skin in the morning and in the evening. Even regardless of whether you went out today and put on make-up. Use a mild cleanser, which not only gently cleans dry areas of the skin, but also gently removes fat from the T-zone. It's better if it's foam or mousse specifically for mixed skin. If desired, greasy areas can be cleaned with a special sponge for washing. Rinse the product better with warm water, but in no case hot. Hot water will further activate the work of the sebaceous glands and dry the dry areas.
Tonic for combination skin - absolute musthave in care! Use it after washing. Tonic narrows the pores and restores the acidity of the skin, which is equally good for both fatty and dry areas. In addition, the tonic prepares the skin for application of the cream. The latter is better absorbed into the skin and will give away all its nutrients and active ingredients. Yes, and the sensation of applying tonic on the face speak for themselves. You immediately feel fresh, and the skin to the touch will become much more gentle and softer. After you have used the tonic, you need to immediately apply a face cream.
Mandatory morning and evening apply moisturizercream. Use for the face can immediately two creams. Light moisturizing for oily areas of the skin, nourishing and softening - for dry. Modern skin care products also offer creams for combination skin. In the composition of such creams are perfectly matched components that not only soften dry areas of the skin, but also normalize the production of sebaceous glands in fatty areas. Please note that the composition of the cream also included SPF-filters.
Complementary skin care products
You can use these means forday. Fatty T-zone can be periodically treated with soft matting napkins, which do not spoil the makeup. The whole face can be sprayed with thermal water, which will soothe the inflammation and moisturize the dry skin of the cheeks. For make-up it is also worth choosing certain products. It is better not to use powder, but to give preference to tonal products with a light and melting texture, for example, mousse or BB cream, which is created on a gel basis. Blush is better to choose creamy, as compact powder blush quickly fall from dry areas of the skin.
- Peelings and masks
Once a week, you just need to doexfoliating treatments and face masks. Selecting peeling for combination skin, pay attention to the fact that the abrasive in the scrub composition was artificial. Such an abrasive gently exfoliate dead cells, without traumatizing the skin. Natural abrasives made up of scrubs and gommage are usually made from the powder of plant bones (apricots, peaches and others) that tend to scratch the delicate skin. During the use of peeling, work out the T-zone more thoroughly, massaging this area is necessary for at least 2-3 minutes. Dry cheeks and whiskey treat no more than a minute or more with gentle movements. Masks should be done after peeling. Both these procedures are best spent in the evening before going to bed, since after them it is not recommended to go out into the air. After the peeling, microtraumas appear on the skin, into which infection can occur with street air. In addition, it is in the evening that the facial skin absorbs and absorbs the useful components of masks better. There are ready masks and peels for combination skin, but we suggest you cook homemade products based on natural and useful ingredients.
