Proper combination skin care
Combined (mixed) is a mixture of two types of skin – oily (most often this is the T-zone: forehead, nose and chin) and dry. A feature of combination skin is increased activity of the sebaceous glands in the T-zone. Often, people with this type of skin have black dots, and in other areas of the face there is dryness and peeling. This type of skin requires careful combination care.
Beautician’s recommendations. Depending on the season, this kind of skin requires special care. In summer, you must use a gel for washing, scrub (once a week), a light non-greasy cream or gel with anti-inflammatory components. In winter, on the contrary, it is worthwhile to carefully cleanse with milk, use a scrub (no more than once every two weeks), protect the skin with a thick, oily cream, which is based on animal fats, thick vegetable oils or waxes. But the first step to healthy skin is, of course, its cleansing.
Proper combination skin care
Cleansing. Cleansing should be delicate. It is necessary to remove excess sebaceous secretion, and at the same time not to dry the skin. Cleansing should be done in the morning and evening, using special products that are suitable for this type of skin. The product should be applied in a small layer, then massage the skin with your fingertips for several minutes, and then rinse with cool water. This is the most delicate and hygienic way. It is important to remember that it is not advisable to wash your face with hot water and soap.
Toning After cleansing, you need to wipe the skin with a lotion or tonic that does not contain alcohol. A tonic should have anti-inflammatory and moisturizing components (panthenol, herbal extracts, salicylic acid).
Applying cream. An important condition is that the cream should not be oily and have anti-inflammatory substances. This prevents the onset of inflammatory processes. Buy creams only with natural oils, as mineral oils lead to clogging of the skin.
Deep cleansing. A cleansing mask is done once a week. To do this, use a scrub with solid particles. Be sure to do a professional facial cleansing, the frequency of this procedure should be selected for you individually by the beautician. Masks should be creamy, not dry on the skin. Film masks (a film forms after drying), apply to oily areas of the skin, and a nourishing mask (once a week) can be applied to dry skin.

“Black dots”. As a rule, women themselves squeeze out the formed “black dots”. This is not worth doing on your own, as this contributes to the emergence of new “black dots”. In addition, squeezing on insufficiently cleansed skin can cause an inflammatory process. You should seek the help of a cosmetologist.
