Oily to Combination Skin Care: 6 Basic Tips for Winters

Oily combination facial skin requires special care in winter season. Know more…
Oily to combination skin is a mixed type of skin. That means, some parts of facial skin feel oily and other parts feel dry.
Your skin type is oily to combination if the T-zone of forehead, nose and chin is oily and cheeks remain dry.
You hate oily to combination skin as it becomes extremely dry and sensitive in winters and greasy in summers.
Oily parts have prominent large pores staring at you along with frequent acne breakouts. Cheeks feel tight, dry, flaky, and may start itching in winter.
You need right skin care ingredients to manage winter problems of both dry and oily skin.
Honey is a harmless skin cleanser for oily and dry skin. Apply little honey on wet face like face wash and wash off.
It hydrates dry skin, heals acne, and prevents new breakouts.
Gel-based hyaluronic acid face serum gives best hydrating effect. It fights winter dryness without any acne breakout on oily T-zone.
Don't skip sunscreen just because it is winter. Apply a thick layer of sunscreen gel with zinc oxide and SPF value 30 or more before going outdoors in daytime.
Gently massage sweet almond oil on face at nighttime before going to bed.
This lightweight, vitamin- rich oil nourishes skin but does not clog pores or cause acne.
In winter, excess dry and dead skin cells feel rough. Use salicylic acid exfoliant 2-3 times a week to remove them.
A smooth skin deeply absorbs moisturizer.
Shrink large skin pores with mineral-rich bentonite clay mask twice a week.
Make a fine paste of clay and rose water. Apply it all over the face, wait for 15 minutes, and rinse off.
If you are using any of these skin care ingredients for the first time, don’t miss a patch test on elbow or wrist area.
