How to Moisturize Combination Skin
There are a million moisturizing methods for dry skin as well as oily skin. But what about those who float somewhere in the middle? Combination skin is when some areas of your face are oily (such as the T-zone, commonly) while other areas are dry. Most moisturizers won't work for those who have this skin type, forcing those who have combination skin to pick and choose which areas of their face they want to nourish. Not cool. So what can you do to lock in some hydration? Here are our best tips and tricks to nourish your combination skin entirely, not just in sections.
1. Hydration Starts from Within
The first step to hydration is nourishing your body from within. Drinking water and eating wholesome food can help regulate the oils and hydration within your skin for a more even and balanced complexion. Consider upping your water intake - and maybe toss back a flaxseed oil supplement every now and then.
2. Avoid harsh chemicals
Our (SPIN)Therapy Moisturizer is a dream for combination skin. The lightweight formula combined with intensive therapeutic ingredients create a moisturizer that hydrates without the clogging qualities of other lotions. (SPIN)Therapy makes for a great over-night cream for face since its formula is so rich. Night creams work wonders for combination skin because the formula is able to work its magic overnight and seeping in so as not to be overly greasy/oily during the day.
3. Treat yourself TO facial masks
There are plenty of combination skin masks out on the market. However, not all of these masks are guaranteed to be gentle yet effective enough to moisturize combination skin without throwing off your skin's balance. This recipe, by The Best Organic Skin Care, contains ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. All you need is 1/2 of an avocado and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. The whole recipe can be found at the link provided (FYI, those ingredients can be found in our (SPIN)Therapy Moisturizer along with other key nutrients!).
Unlocking the secrets to moisturizing combination skin doesn't have to be rocket science. All your skin needs is a little TLC and hydration. Hydration helps correct the oily sections of skin while boosting the dry areas. Play around with your methods until you have a skin care routine that's as unique as you!
