JAKARTA - Each skin type has its own advantages and disadvantages. In terms of treatment, you can say that it is much different.
However, how are the owners of combination skin? Where a person has part of normal, dry, oily skin, even more sensitive areas can be added.
The characteristics of combination skin can be seen from the area of the forehead, nose, and chin which tends to be oily. Other areas such as the cheeks and under the eyes are usually drier. However, the pores appear enlarged, especially on the forehead and nose.
Having combination skin can be quite difficult. Because, you can have dry and oily skin problems at the same time. This includes dry to sore skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne.
To choose facial care products also tends to be more difficult. Because, each area of the skin can show a different reaction to a product.
So, you may need to use a variety of products for each area of your face depending on the problem that arises.
However, make sure to avoid products that contain alcohol, be it facial cleansers, toners, and others. Always read the ingredients on the product label and if you find alcohol, it's best to look for alternatives.
Products containing alcohol can draw water from the skin cells, leaving the skin drier. On the other hand, the oil glands respond to this by producing more oil to restore moisture to the skin.
You also need to choose non-comedogenic and oil-free products. These products will not clog pores and are generally lighter in texture.
There are several ingredients in facial care products that are suitable for combination skin. Among them is hyaluronic acid which can make skin moisturized without being too oily. Then there's salicylic acid to open pores and regulate oil production.
Don't forget products with antioxidants to keep your skin free from environmental damage and UV rays.
