Cosmetics for Combination Skin Type

Thursday, 11 June 2009

cosmetics combination skin typeCombination skin type is considered to be the most common skin type in women. This skin type is characterized by rather oily central area of the face, including forehead, nose and chin. The skin on the cheeks, area around the eyes and neck is either normal or dry. In case of combination skin type, different cosmetics and different methods of skin care are recommended for oily and dry areas. But if the difference between dry and oily areas is not considerable, one may use multifunctional cosmetics.

Let's talk about some peculiarities of combination skin care.

In the morning, use facial wash and rinse it with cool water. We recommend to avoid using hot water, as you risk to dry out the dry areas and to enhance excessive oil secretion on the oily ones. You may use cotton pads for facial wash rinse; these would help to get away with exfoliation. Cotton pad is the best for areas of oily skin. After washing, clean the face with a toner. Ensure that all the products you are using are suitable for combination skin type or mixed skin type, facial wash for normal skin type may also be used. These products are at your disposal: Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer, Combination to Oily Skin (Clinique), and Ideal Balance Foaming Gel Cleanser for Combination Skin (L'Oreal).

The next step of combination skin care is applying moisturizing cream. But before you moisturize your skin, apply locally a special product for reducing blemishes - just on the pimples. Before leaving home apply SPF-cream.  Here is a short list of proper moisturizing products designed for combination skin: Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules (Elizabeth Arden), Moisture Fix SPF 15 (M.A.C. Studio), Repairwear SPF 15 Intensive Cream (Clinique), Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum (Olay). Remember that protecting your skin from negative impact of sun and using cosmetics with SPF-filters is essential for the combination skin care.

For aging skin, in other words, for women of 35 and older, after morning wash, we recommend to apply facial moisturizing serum containing retinol, antioxidants or hyaluronic acid. There are a lot of products, for example, Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Moisturizer (Olay) and Age Defying Instant Firming Face Primer for Normal/Combination Skin (Revlon).

If your skin looks shiny during the day you can easily correct this with tissues. Facial spray is another essential thing in your cosmetics bag used for combination skin care. If you hate that shining of your skin, simply wipe it off with paper towel and let it to absorb the excessive oil and then apply spray just on the towel. Finish with the touch of powder puff.

It is necessary to remove all makeup and properly clean the skin in the evening. Use facial cleanser and toner for that purpose. Apply night cream on the thoroughly cleaned skin: apply oil rich cream on the normal skin area, light cream for oily skin of light emulsion. As a rule special stick for rubies may be bought at a drug store - apply it locally.

Once a week use a scrub for the combination skin. Be careful because areas of oily and dry skin are combined on your face. Massage Т-zone more intensively - the skin there is oily and scrub would do it good. Apply scrub on the cheeks with lightly pressing movements. Use scrub in the evening before you go to bed, don't get away after peeling. Exfoliating scrubs remove dead cells and further care and using of different face masks makes your skin bright and healthy look. We recommend to consider the following face masks for combination skin: Multi-Mineral Pore Minimising Detox Mask (REN), and Purifying Face Mask (Granny Agafia's Recipes).
