As the biggest organ, the skin deserves a great deal of care and attention. After all, it’s also the first part where signs of ageing start showing, and it has a lot to do with our well-being. Yet, care and attention sounds easier said than done, especially for people with combination skin.
Though it’s the most common skin type, it takes time to figure out how to properly take care. If you’ve seen oiliness in some parts of your face even after washing it, most likely in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin), you have breakouts as well as dry patches, and normal moisturisers only make the oily parts worse, then you certainly need combination skin products.
Though there are different types of skincare products, using the ones meant for normal, dry, or strictly oily skin can make your skin more problematic as previously mentioned with the example of moisturisers.
Great news is combination skin products aren’t only affordable, but versatile too, considering there are those made of pure essential oils, like tea tree, rosehip, and camomile, that are certified organic.
Before you find out you have combination skin, it can be difficult to pick the suitable skincare, and you may wonder why the pores on the nose are slightly larger than those on the cheeks, and why there’s uneven skin tone. In some cases, there are also fine lines, a not so wanted glow, and the pores are clogged.
We have our parents to thank for the skin type, it’s all in the genes, or rather the amount of active oil glands in the T-zone. As much as it’s important to have the adequate products, buying organic and avoiding those with fragrances, it’s also advisable to know what else you can do to help your skin.
While you may not be aware, stress has a lot to do with how active your skin is, so if you’re going through some stressful situations on a daily basis, chances are you are bound to experience more skin issues. Make way for more relaxation in your lifestyle, try yoga, meditation, exercising, or listening to music, whatever calms you, and you can see positive changes.
It’s needless to say nutrition has a huge part too, and what combination skin needs is more natural moisturising coming from foods with essential fatty acids, such as those found in nuts, fish, and flaxseed. Remember, beauty comes from within, and you are what you eat!
