Picking off a great facial product for combination skin type can be a bit tricky and challenging since it is dry as well as oily. The products designed specifically for dry skin can lead to breakouts in the oily zones while the products for oily skin can leave the dry skin areas irritated. So, the best option you can resort to for caring your combination skin is natural remedies that are free of any harsh irritants present in the chemical-based products.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a wonderful astringent, but it’s a bit acidic and thus can prove harsh on dry zones of your skin. However, a diluted formula can help your oily skin without impairing susceptible, dry areas. To get diluted acv, you’ll need two tbsp. acv, 1 1/4 cups water and three tbsp. of freshly grated mint. Combine vinegar and mint in an air-tight jar and leave them for a week. After a week, drain liquid from the mixture and mix it with water. Stir well and use. The remedy is safe enough to use on daily basis.
A mild exfoliant is a must-have for women with combination skin since it smoothes down your dry skin zones by removing dead, flaky skin and opens up the clogged pores in your oily skin areas by lifting dirt from them. Brown sugar is an organic antioxidant and a mild exfoliant. To prepare brown sugar exfoliant, mix half cup of brown sugar with half cup almond or avocado oil and some aloe Vera or vitamin C together. Blend all the ingredients well to get the exfoliant. Include the exfoliant in your weekly skin care regimen.
An ideal cleanser for combination skin is the one which is extra-gentle and doesn’t bring about skin issues. Yogurt can be a great cleanser for combination skin since it contains alpha-hydroxy acid, which exfoliates as well as moisturizes the skin. To use yogurt as facial cleanser, get a quarter-sized amount and rinse your face with it as you do with soap. Be sure to use plain yogurt always since sugary yogurt can do more damage than good.
