Having combination skin means it has a mind of its own sometimes dry or sometimes oily. Finding the right products has been an on going struggle for me and my skin we most certainly have a love/hate relationship. As a teen i used have these annoying pesky spots on my forehead really red and pimple like for years and years using specific spot products use seemed to make it worse. Whether it was my hormones or diet that made things bad who knows. This past year ive really learnt alot more about the skin and what it needs to get that healthy looking glowing face.
Having a good basic skincare routine is a start. Cleanse, tone & moisturise is the essentials adding night cream, sunscreen, exfoliators and masks is a preference. Regular cleansing will remove dirt but only a facial mask will actually draw out all the impurities from beneath the top layers of your skin. Using a mask helps exfoliate dead skin cells and unclog pores and also helps stimulate blood circulation leaving your skin feeling softer.
Sometimes when im in that lazy mood or have had a long day at work and tired the last thing i want to do is add a face mask on my list of things to do. But having learnt that a face mask is needed in my skincare routine it makes me think much more about my skin and how it will look after. Even having a mask once a week will give your skin a more healthy look. It will hydrate the skin and fight acne.
The perfect setting to use a face mask is either whilst you are having a lovely bubbly bath with a glass of your favourite drink at the side and some candles near by :)
Finding the right face mask may be a challenge so i have some pointers which may help your type of skin:
Acne Prone: Mask treatment that contains honey and cinnamon, Both ingredients soothes the skin and gives a deep clean.
Sensitive: A mask that contains rose clay which is mixed with avocado and chamomile oil which can calm redness and soothes irritation.
Dry: Milk and yoghurt based masks are gentle and more hydrating.
Normal: Fruit masks that give the skin a pick me up
Combination: Banana or sandalwood/honey which degunks the pores and hydrates dry spots.
(Just to add the advice that i am giving to you is one that has been approved by the spa education)
What face masks do you like using? :)
