Regular Skin care for Combination Skin Type, Natural tips and tricks

Its the most common type. Its the combination of both oily and dry skin. Facial tissue will have traces of oil coming from your nose and forehead, but will be clean in the areas that touched your cheeks.
As combination skin has patches of both dry and oily skin, and it requires both oily and dry types of skin care in relation to particular facial areas. Dry areas are mostly cheeks and around the eyes. They should be treated with rich creams and moisturizers. Whereas oily portions which mostly includes forehead and nose, requires thorough cleaning.
Provide regular cleansing and while cleansing emphasize on oily parts and clean them deeply. The oily part need to be deeply cleansed and toned with regular application of home-made astringents.
Like wise dry part should be moisturized thoroughly whereas oily part should get minimum moisturizer. Home-made cold or moisturizing creams are best.  Both the dry and greasy areas need moisturizing only take care of measurement. 
In my earlier article i have shown basic skin care routine are for every skin type which include four steps
  • Cleansing
  • Removing dead cells/skin
  • Toning
  • Moisturizing

Here I will show u some extra steps best for your own skin type i.e. combination skin...

Step #1. Cleansing for Combination skin:
Cleansing  is a must step for every skin because no matter what you do you can't keep your skin away from dust, harmful sun rays, wind and even stress. When a person is under stress his/her oil producing glands become more active , produce more oil and make your skin look dull and dark. That why when you wash you face it refresh your skin as well as release stress to some extent.
For improving combination skin follow steps below:
  • Cleansing for combination skin should be performed two to three times per day.
  • Best timing for cleansing are morning and evening. Before going to bed if u feel like your skin need cleansing you can add that too in you routine.
  • Use pleasant warm water to splash face.
  • Clean your face with a mild natural cleanser neither very thick and creamy nor totally clear oil free, avoid soap.
  • Apply using finger tips in circular motion. 
  • Massage for one minute and emphasize on oily area more then dry.
  • Wash out properly.
  • Dry out using soft towel.
  • Take a cotton bud or soft tissue dip in rose water and apply to your face thoroughly, it will refresh your face. Regular use will give a rosy complexion and a glow to your skin.
  • Don't use anything like towel or tissue for drying. Leave it to dry itself.
  • This will complete your cleansing process.

Step #2. Removing dead skin:
Removing dead skin also known as exfoliation process is important for keeping skin healthy and its the best way of giving younger look to combination skin. Its seems artificial or harmful but its totally natural process as many people don't know our skin shred thousands of cells per minute. Manually removing dead cell only enhance that process and end up giving you a glowing look.
  • Over doing exfoliation process can damage the skin so only repeat this process once or at max twice a week.
  • There are many ways to exfoliate facial skin such as exfoliating soup, scrub or tools like gloves, face brush, cleansing pouch, facial cloths etc.
  • To remove dead skin use pleasant warm water to splash face.
  • Use soft scrubs such as Clean n Clear, Farmasi or Neutrogena  or exfoliating tool such as gloves to rub gently in circular motion.
  • Don't press hard and remember to be extra gentle with dry area.
  •  Rinse off your face thoroughly and move to the next step.

Step #3. Toning for combination skin:
Rose water that I have mentioned in cleansing also work as best toner if u feel that's enough for refreshing your skin you can skip this part. Where as for giving an extra glow and protection to your face you can always get a light toner. It never gives any side effect for any skin type.
  • Apply toner right after cleansing(or exfoliation process).
  • But it can be also be applied any other time of the day as well.
  • It best to use toner  two to three times a day.
  • Apply using cotton bud or soft facial tissue for even spread.
  • Rose water, Aloevera juice and lavender water are the best toner for combination skin.
  • Again leave to dry off naturally.

Step #4. Moisturizing for combination skin:
Moisturizing is the very important step. If skin is fully moisturized pores will not collect dust hence black heads and open pores will not be created.
  • Apply two times a day followed by toner.
  • Waite for toner to dry before applying.
  • Don't use very creamy, greasy or thick creams. light lotions like baby lotion, ponds, dove etc are best for combination skin.
  • Remember oily areas need very less moisturizing so emphasize more on dry area.
  • Buttermilk, avocado, honey, olive oil are best natural moisturizer.
  • Natural oils that are good for combination skins include olive, jojoba and primrose oil.
  • Some homemade moisturizing lotions are made with essential oils suitable for your skin such as lavender, rose and Neroli.
Apply the recommended moisturizer to clean, dry skin and allow the skin to absorb the moisturizer. Do not over-moisturizer but apply enough for your skin to absorb and remove extra with soft tissue.

Combination Skin care before Sleeping: 

Adopt following steps before sleeping if you have combination skin.
  • Wash your face two to three times for softening your skin.
  • Use cleansing product only if your skin feels dusty or oily and apply only to oily area.
  • Dry out with soft towel.
  • Now wash with pleasant warm water for 5 times.
  • Dry out again.
  • Apply moisturizer to dry area and very little to oily part. Let your skin absorb it. Remove extra with tissue and have nice beauty sleep.
