I wanted to give you guys some background about my skin. Recently I uploaded a post of my 22 month experience using Spin For Perfect Skin and expressed after a year the surface and texture of my skin has changed.
I also included a skin care line in my initial review as well (Michael Todd Skin Care Line) which I will go in depth in another posting.😆
What Causes Combination Skin?
1. When it comes to combination skin, the causes and combinations tend to differ from one another.
2. Combination skin is when some parts of your face are dry or flaky, while the center part of your face, nose, chin, and forehead (called the T-zone) is oily.
3. Another common cause of combination skin can be a result of the very skin-care products you are using………..:'(
How to Take Care of your Combination Skin?
The #1 rule for any skin type is DRINK WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Choose natural products when possible to keep skin healthy and clear of harsh chemicals.
Start with a gentle cleanser:
(Charcoal Detox Cleanser ) Deep Pore Gel Face Wash
Use a toner to repair skin:
(Blue Green Algae Toner )Hydrating Antibacterial Toner
Exfoliate to remove built-up skin cells:
St. Ives Scrub with Soothing Elder Flower (Discontinued)
Weekly mask treatments can help balance out skin or clarify the oily parts and hydrate the dry skin:
(Charcoal™ Mask ) Detoxifying Facial Mask
Special concerns require special products:
NIP + FABGlycolic Fix Serum
Spot-treat the different skin types on your face:
Alba Botanica Natural AcneDote Invisible Treatment Gel
Protect from sun damage:
(Moisture Lite™ )Non-Oily Hydrating Lotion
Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer, SPF 30
:idea:Know Your Acids:idea:
AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) are both very beneficial for combination skin. AHAs can help reveal healthy, new skin underneath dead skin cells and BHAs exfoliate skin.
With regular use of a beta hydroxy acid (BHA/salicylic acid) product or an alpha hydroxy acid (AHAs, such as glycolic acid) product in a texture appropriate for your skin type:
-Gel or liquid for oily, blemish-prone skin.
-Lotion for normal or dry skin
BHA is especially helpful for normal, oily or blemish-prone skin because it not only exfoliates the surface of skin, it also exfoliates inside the pore to reduce pore size, unclog pores, and kill acne-causing bacteria. BHA is also a must for anyone struggling with blackheads and enlarged pores.
It’s Okay to Mix and Match!!!!
Having combination skin also means that you might have to use different formulas and products for different parts of your face. And I definitely have plenty of products to give my opinion on.
See you guys on the next posting😙
