Caring For Combination Skin

If your face is partly oily and partly dry, you have got combination skin and there are several ways to care for it so that you can keep both types balanced and looking good.

Madhupriya Rai Beauty tips of the day

Use a mild cleanser on your entire face up to twice a day.

  • Use a good moisturizer on the dry areas. ā€“ Moisturizers work by either increasing the penetration of water into the skin or by reducing the rate at which water is evaporating from the skin surface.
  • Look for products that normalize your skin, such as those that contain alpha hydroxyl acids ā€“ Alpha hydroxyl acids are derived from fruit, milk and sugar cane and have anti-inflammatory properties. When applied to the skin they help remove dead skin cells (exfoliate), giving us a younger appearance.
  • Use oil-absorbing makeup on oily areas to control shine.
  • Use a sunscreen, minimum SPF 15.
