Welcome back to my Skinsatin Blog! Today I want to talk about combination skin. The combination skin is a very unstable skin. It’s very difficult to know how to treat it. It is a skin that tends to become oily with blackheads and acne pimples. But most women will suffer from this type of skin, this is really not a rare type of skin. It’s a skin that makes us crazy, a real headache! It’s true, on the same skin there are oily areas that require a type of care, then there is the dry area that must be hydrated. So with all these differences, it is very difficult to find a care that is suitable for the skin of the whole face. Fortunately there are both natural and cosmetic solutions. So if you want to finally calm your combination skin, follow the guide!
Combination Skin – What is it?
The combination skin is when on several parts of your face you have several different skin problems. On the combination skin there is a dry zone and an area that tends to become oily. Mostly dry areas are cheeks, cheekbones and temples. The oily areas of the combination skin are the wings of the nose, forehead and chin, this is the T zone. Since there are two types of skin on the face, the combination skin often gives uncomfortable sensations like tugging or chipping on dry areas. On oily areas there are often acne pimples, blackheads and comedones.
The combination skin often has a glossy appearance on the chin, forehead and nose and a dull appearance on the cheeks and cheekbones. There are two types of combination skin: combination skin to oily and combination skin to dryness. If your skin has a tendency to shine, it is because you are a combination skin towards oily. If your combination skin has redness that persists and pulls on the dry areas it is that you are a combination skin to the dry.
Combination Skin – Who Is Concerned and Why?
Your skin types like the rest of your body is a genetic inheritance. But the combination skin often concerns women between 25 and 35 years old. This is often due to disturbances of hormonal balance. What can disrupt your hormonal balance and worsen the appearance of your combination skin may be the cigarette. Because tobacco clogs the pores and can disrupt the hormonal balance.
There may also be your food, if you eat too much sugar and a saturated fat rich food the appearance of your combination skin may get worse. When you take contraceptive pills your skin is very often disturbed and this can accentuate skin problems if you have it or worsen your combination skin problems.
The combination skin does not like cosmetics too thick or too rich. Indeed, it clogs the pores and the superposition of foundation cream and too thick powder further spoils the combination skin. It is better to use mineral makeup that is much lighter than conventional cosmetics. So if you use a lot of makeups, it is better to get professional advice to know what you can use or not.
If you are a young woman or a young man and you suffer from combination skin do not worry about it. Yes, our skin is a living organ that does not stop evolving. The skin becomes less oily by the age of 35 for women and 45 years for men. But if you are 20 years old I know that the way may seem long, however I do not recommend using your mother’s products. Because every age has its skin problem so it is useless to go too fast. The combination skin is complex to treat but it is not impossible to get rid of it.
