Skin Care for Combination Skin Type

Skin Care for Combination Skin

The key thing to understand in regard to skin care for combination skin types is there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. It depends on how dry your dry areas are naturally and how oily your oily areas are. And whilst each area needs to be addressed, keep this in mind, none of the products you use should contain any harsh or skin-aggravating ingredients. Every part of your skin care routine needs to be non-irritating. Whenever your put products with sensitising ingredients (especially fragrance, both synthetic and natural) on your skin, you would be making everything worse. In the case of combination skin, the dry areas will become drier and the oily areas will become oilier.

A Guide to Selecting the Best Skin Care Products

Your skin is the bodies largest organ. Its major functions are protection, regulation and sensation. If our skin is not functioning to its full ability, these functions may become compromised.

It’s easy to get lost in the sea of skin care options these days. Not only are there doctors, dermatologists, skin care professionals and aestheticians telling you this or that, you also have YouTubers, bloggers and beauty enthusiasts flooding you with thoughts and ideas too. It’s no wonder there are so many skin issues and concerns these days. When you don’t know where to start or what information is reliable, how is your skin really going to respond? More importantly, the use of incorrect skin care products can actually exasperate your condition or cause additional skin problems.

The use of professional active ingredient skin care is recommended. The “Professional” skin care products we recommended on this site can only be purchased through certified stockists and practitioners who are required to provide their professional advice on the application of these products, (as opposed to those you can purchase over the counter (OTC) in department stores and supermarkets). These recommended professional products contain;-

  • higher levels of active ingredients to boost your skin’s health and correct skin problems 
    (OTC product lines have less active ingredients to minimise chance of irritation to protect the buyer)
  • are backed by clinical studies 
    (not exaggerated unsubstantiated claims)
  • are made in small batches and distributed to trained or licensed skin care therapists, spas and salons to be supplied with professional advice on their use  
    (OTC products are made for the masses and sold in department stores and supermarkets) 
  • contain small molecule technology for dermal and epidermal penetration
    (OTC products that lack active ingredients, have large molecules which are not able to penetrate the skin. When a product can’t properly penetrate the skin, it will  only “superficially” treat and temporarily provide relief to skin concerns. This gives the illusion that the products are working without actually treating the skin. Professional lines use molecular technology that penetrates the skin producing clinical results)
  • are packaged in airless pump packs to eliminate spoilage of ingredients  when exposed to the air
  • have pH balanced and adjusted ingredients – skin functions at its prime when the natural pH is between a 4.5 and 5.5.
    (Often OTC products don’t take pH into consideration and will leave the skin in an alkaline state. When the skin is alkaline, bacteria and free radicals (such as pollution) can invade the skin)
  • do not contain unnecessary fillers and preservatives

Professional skin care often has a reputation of being “too expensive” but that is more often than not actually far from the truth. A good professional line will price their products according to concentration of active ingredients versus fillers and are actually overall more budget-friendly. It is a common mistake to overuse products which leads to the perception that professional skin care is more expensive. Our Skin Specialist will advise you on the appropriate amount and when to use the products according to your skin condition and type. When used properly, professional skin care products will last longer and work better giving you the ultimate bang for your buck. OTC products will have a lower upfront cost but overtime can be similar in price or more expensive than professional skin care and won’t actually repair the skin condition being treated.
