No skin is easy to care for; it takes time and patience to get naturally healthy and glowing skin. This effort increases 2 fold if you have combination skin. Combination skin is dry in certain parts and oily in others. Normally the T zone is oily while other parts of your skin are dry.
This makes it difficult to care for and your skin care routine also needs to reflect the type of skin. Using the wrong products will cause havoc on your skin and you may have breakouts and skin rashes.
For this reason it is important to understand and learn what are the right products for your skin and how do they benefit you. The routine that you need to follow to keep combination skin healthy and clean is very simple so relax and follow these simple steps.
You need to follow a basic CTM routine. To clean your skin you must wash your face with warm water and a mild anti bacterial soap. Don’t use any products with a fragrance in it as it will harm your delicate skin.
After you have washed your face pat it dry and use rose water as a toner all over your face and neck. The rose water will clean the pores from deep within and also close them. Rose water is a natural product that will moisturize the dry parts of your face too.
You also need to consider deep cleaning; for this you need to exfoliate the skin on your face and neck (don’t exert too much pressure on the cheeks but focus on the T zone and other oily regions on the face). Complete this session with a steam session to open your pores and deep clean.
You need to make a wise choice when you are deciding on a moisturizer. An oil based moisturizer will increase the production of oil on your skin so a cream based moisturizer is your best bet.
You can depend on Aloe Vera gel to moisturize the skin all over your body. It can also be used when you are headed out in the sun to protect your skin from sun damage.
Drinking water during the day instead of aerated beverages and caffeine will improve the condition of your skin drastically.
