Skin type - Combination
"Just make up your mind"...I say to my skin every morning...
As I wake up and see dry patches across my cheek and oily patches on my nose and forehead...
I know that it can be confusing to have different things going on in your face, and not really knowing how to go about it, or which products to use,
If you use products for oily skin, then the dry patches will get worst, but how can I neglect this oil slick on my face by using things for dry skin?
The thing is, you don't have to think of it that way.
I want to introduce to you a word that will change how you view your combination skin,
But before I do that, let's see what could be causing your skin to be confused....
The name of the game is: Balance
Balancing your skin means that it will be able to regulate the of sebum it produces.
Combination skin means that your skin is oily in some parts and dry in others, so the best way to go about finding a balance is to think about healing and nurtuing, protecting the moisture barrier of the skin that can soo easily get compromised with irritating products, the weather, over cleansing and drying products.
It's a cycle that is hard to break, because most of the times you need to do less...
So your skin can do more.
You see our skin is created in a way that it can adapt to many different things, but when we start to apply products and create long routines we might be doing more harm than good.
There are some amazing, natural, gentle and effective ingredients that can restore, balance and nurture our skin:
So, how do we include these ingredients in our routine?
Combination skin needs a careful balance of moisturizing ingredients and purifying ones, that's why the Lavender Oats cleansing scrubs is a great choice for you!
Oats and clays cleanse gently and lavender offers antibacterial, ant inflammatory and healing properties to the skin.
How to use
1. Make a paste with the scrubs and massage on face for 15-20 seconds, then wash to reveal smooth and refreshed skin!
This step is so important for to hydrate the dry parts and balance the oily ones. Using the facial spritz before the facial oils is the trick your skin needs to stay happy and plump. Rose water is a natural p.h. balancer, and aloe vera and vegetable glycerin add humidity and healing!
How to use:
2. Spray on after using the cleansing scrubs (I like to do one spray on the left, and one on the right 😊)
And now, all you have to do is apply the facial oils to seal in that moisture you have applied in the previous step! You will also get all the soothing, anti-inflammatory properties of almond oil, roses, calendula and chamomille!
How to use
3. Apply a few drops after spraying your face with the facial spritz, and massage onto skin until absorbed!
Combination skin needs a simple approach so your skin can do the work it was meant to do.
Keep itself balanced and protected.
