Skincare Routine for Combination Skin
Combination skin is neither dry nor oily, it’s both. It is typically characterised by skin that is oily on the nose, chin, and forehead (T-zone) as well as dry and flaky around the cheeks, jaw and hairline. You’ll know you have combination skin when you feel like you’re dealing with two different skin types at the same time. However, using two different routines can be exhausting, so you need to find the middle ground. How do you do that? By creating a skincare routine that is tailored for combination skin and give your skin the balance it needs.
1. Use a gentle cleanser
Your skin’s surface attracts a lot of dirt, excess oils, and impurities throughout the day. You should make sure to use a gentle yet effective cleanser like the Garnier Micellar Water to help mattify your oily T-zone without over-drying your cheeks and under-eye area. This cleanser works like a magnet to lift dust and dirt from your skin and is free from alcohol, parabens or fragrance. You can follow this step with the Garnier Face Wash, which will help to retain your skin’s natural moisture and prevent it from over-drying while giving your skin an instant boost of freshness and radiance.
2. Exfoliate effectively
Exfoliating dives deep into the pores to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin, and get rid of the dead skin cells from the surface. Scrubbing helps oxygen to travel through your skin and by following this practice effectively, your pores will look tighter and less visible. Keep in mind that you should only exfoliate 2-3 times a week to avoid being too harsh on your skin. Over-exfoliation can cause dryness, irritation, and redness.
3. Apply vitamin C serum
A vitamin C serum acts as a treatment to hydrate and protect your skin. The Garnier Vitamin C Serum also prevents your skin from sunburn, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, sagging, and dryness. This vitamin C serum for face is an antioxidant-rich product that helps you get a bright, spotless complexion while reducing acne marks and spots in just 3 days.
4. Do not skip the moisturizer
Whether you have oily, dry or combination skin, moisturization is one step that is often overlooked by people. If you too are guilty of skipping it, it’s time you change the habit. Moisturizers nourish your skin and keep it supple, hydrated, smooth, and younger-looking. Use the Garnier Vitamin C Serum Cream to not only moisturize your skin but also brighten and repair it. This vitamin C serum cream protects your skin from sun damage and fades dark spots, pimple spots, and UV spots in just one week. Make sure that you use generous amounts of this cream in places where your skin is extra dry.
5. Sun protection is a must
Harmful sun rays are one of the factors that contribute towards unbalancing your skin’s pH level, which in turn leads to combination skin. The rays of the sun also cause hyperpigmentation, dry skin, and signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines. One of the best ways you can care for your skin is by applying a broad-spectrum cream (with an SPF value of 30 or higher) to protect your skin’s radiance and health. You can go for the Garnier Serum Cream with SPF 40 that is made of a lightweight formula and absorbs into the skin quickly. This cream provides UV protection and skin brightening all at once and is perfect for days when you don’t feel like adding a layer of sunscreen to your skin.
6. Treat yourself with a sheet mask
A sheet mask helps to trap the moisture and hydrate your skin better, making it look glowing and healthy. The Garnier Serum Sheet Mask allows the ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin in a short amount of time and help achieve maximum benefits. The Garnier sheet masks are available in several varieties such as charcoal, vitamin C, etc., and there’s one for each to address specific skin concerns. You can opt for the Garnier Black Rice Sheet Mask that helps to hydrate, detoxify and add a hint of glow to your skin. It is recommended that you use a face mask sheet at least three times a week.
