Balanced Care for Combination Skin

Combination skin needs careful care because it has a blend of oily and dry patches. T-zone, across the forehead and down the nose and chin tends to be oily, and needs to be treated like oily skin. However, the other areas are prone to dryness and flakiness due to lack of moisture, and need to be treated like dry skin.

5 steps care for combination skin

1. Choose an oil-based eye makeup remover to clear away every trace of eye makeup from this delicate area which is prone to dryess. Use a cotton bud to remove any stubborn traces. Splash with cool water afterwards to rinse away any excess oil.

2. Use a foaming facial wash in the morning to cleanse your skin. This will ensure the oily areas are clean, and that the pores on your nose are kept clear to prevent blackheads and blemishes. Massage a little onto damp skin, concentrating on the oily areas. Leave for a few seconds to dissolve the dirt, then splash with cool water to remove the cleanser.

3. In the evening, switch to a cream cleanser, to ensure the dry areas of skin are kept clean and soothed on a daily basis. This will give you a balance between excess oiliness or excess dryness in your complexion. Massage well into your skin, concentrating on the drier areas, then gently remove with cotton-wool pads.

4. To freshen your skin, you need to buy two different strengths of toners to deal with the differing areas of skin. Choose a stronger astringent for the oily areas, and a mild skin freshner for the drier ones. This isn't as expensive as you think, because you'll only need to use a little of each. Sweep over your skin with cottonwool pads.

5. Smooth moisturizer onto your entire skin, concentrating on the drier areas. Then blot off any excess from the oily areas with a tissue. This will give all your skin the nourishment it needs.
