COMBINATION SKIN

Combination skin is exactly as it says and is probably the most common of the skin types. Different areas of the face will present as dry and others as greasy, some even as normal. Typically the greasier areas are within the ‘T-Zone’ which is the forehead, nose and chin, with the cheeks usually much drier and possibly sensitive. The greasy areas will begin to settle down during the twenties and thirties but the blocked pores are often still visible in the T-zone throughout life, or they may have left enlarged pores.

So what is the best approach for selecting products? The MYTH is that a product can be called 'For Combination Skin' and that it can adequately deal with the needs and issues of two or more total different skin types! This is what ALL skincare companies claim – they all carry a range specifically for Combination skin. However this approach is impossible and does not work!

Love Your Skin does NOT do this. We only create products for the needs of the skin.

For Combination Skin, choose our Cleanse and Smooth Exfoliating Wash when cleansing. The gentle beads will help get rid of any dead skin cells and bacteria (perfect for spots) without being harsh on the skin’s drier and possibly sensitive areas. Made using Willow Bark which contains naturally occurring Salicylic acid which is a Beta Hydroxy acid, this has an exfoliating as well as an anti-inflammatory effect so it is perfect for dry, sensitive skin as well as the oilier areas. Salicylic acid can also penetrate deep into the skin, breaking up clogged pores - perfect for oily or combination skin. If you do not like to wash your face with water then the Complete Cleansing Water or the Complete Cleansing Crème Lotion will achieve the same cleansing experience – without getting wet! But don’t forget to still use the Cleanse and Smooth Exfoliating Wash once or twice a week.

Use the gentle, refreshing and cooling Floral Hydrating Spritzer in place of a toner and as a coolant and refresher whenever need.

As this skin type will have potentially all of the issues of dry, oily and normal skin it is even more crucial that not just ONE ‘Combination Skin’ product is used all over. For optimum skin performance it is vital that every issue and area is treated with the correct product until the issue is resolved. The Intensive Hydra-gel Moisturiser should be used twice daily and is perfect to moisturise any skin type as it provides collagen and vitamin E for hydration and smoothing – vital for all skin types.

The most important purchase for combination skin is the range of serums which will then allow the user to design and customise their treatment applications on EVERY occasion and for each specific area and problem. This makes it appropriate for the skin needs at that particular moment. The combination skin will require each of the serums at some point in time.

When it comes to moisturising, why not try The Apothecary Set. Featuring our signature Intensive Hydra Gel Moisturiser with our 4 treatment serums, the Love Your Skin Apothecary Set is prescriptive natural skincare at its finest.

Applying a layer of Collagen Moisturising Gel as a non-setting mask at least twice a week will assist in boosting hydration whilst calming and soothing every area of this skin type.
