what is combination skin?
You can recognize combination skin by the T-zone on your face: the inner area around the nose tends to closegreasy, oily skin, while the outer area around the cheeks tends to bedry and wrinkles more easily.
Combination skin is caused by the different levels of sebum production on the face. It is stronger on the inside of the face than on the outside. This is often related to the hormones, which is why younger people in particular tend to have combination skin, which then adjusts again with age (around the age of 30).
WHAT CARE FOR COMBINATION SKIN?
Combination skin deserves a little more attention when it comes to care, after all you have to treat two different skin types at the same time: dry and oily and greasy skin.
A proven approach here is to eliminate skin impurities with regular but very mild facial cleansing. At the same time, you include a moisturizer with which you can get the dry parts of the skin under control without overgreasing the oily parts. High-quality oils and moisture-binding active ingredients such as urea and hyaluron will help you here.
TIPS FOR MIXED SKIN
Tip 1:facial cleansing
When cleaning combination skin, use a cleanser that works deep into the pores, but is very mild. After all, you don't want to endanger your skin with aggressive ingredients. Especially with combination skin are mildfacial cleanser suitable, which cleanse the skin with kaolin mud and activated charcoal without further drying it out.
Both the dry and oily areas of the skin benefit from a well-formulatedmoisturizer, which does not have a moisturizing effect: urea and hyaluronic acid are intended to bind moisture, while high-quality oils stabilize the skin's protective acid mantle. The dry skin is well supplied with moisture. At the same time, the sebaceous glands in the oily skin area receive a signal that there is enough fat on the skin.
Combination skin is particularly sensitive to external influences. Free radicals and bacteria can lead to inflammation and skin problems like pimples. Yourvegan cosmetics should therefore be equipped with vitamins, trace elements such as zinc and panthenol to strengthen your skin health.
A healthy lifestyle will help you get combination skin under control. A balanced diet with sufficient fluid intake is just as important here as avoiding harmful alcohol or tobacco.
