Oily & Combo Skin is just like any other skin!
No tears, No fears... I've got good news for you!
Ever wonder why other girls has such balanced skin?
I sometimes is just as jealous of those girls who has normal skin as you are!
Well here's this, it's all about the right ways to cleanse and moisturize and finding
what's friendly to your skin.
Oily skins & Acne prone skins maybe genetic or stress related but no worries...
let's see what are the messages your skin's trying to tell you.
Washing off the excess oil won't stop it from being oily! In fact it's gonna make it more oily...
In this case it's all about balancing, lack of moisture will trick your skin to produce more oil so
moisturizing is just as important as cleansing.
Here are a few steps to balance your skin :
1. Choose the right cleanser!
Try to use a cleanser that has a more neutral P.H, for skin it's 5.5.
The less it foams up the more gentle it is, in my case I like to use gel cleansers, it's
gentle and it does the same job.
Now girls... This is a must...!
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and prevents it from clogging the pores that could
lead to acne...ooo...not pretty!
Twice a week will do the job and leaves skin super soft and smooth...but remember peeps...
Don't over do it! or else it might cause irritation...
3. Tone is just as important as cleanse.
A toner purifies and cleanses any traces of residue dirt and little extra of that freshness.
4. Last but not least...."Moisturize" !
The right type of moisturizer prevents the skin from thirst and produces more oil...
If you have oily skin why not try a gel based moisturizer, it's lighter and pore clog free.
If you have combo skin then there's no worries if a moisturizer can be too rich, as long as if
you are using the right amount.
Different people suits different types of moisturizers, what works for me might not work for you.
But hey! Try for yourself and you might be amazed of the difference it makes!
If you have no idea where to start, I have some recommendations for you!
