The difference between oily skin and combination skin


How to differentiate between these two categories is skin areas that secrete too much sebum.

Areas of combination skin are mainly on the forehead, nose and chin, called the T-zone because of the shape of the letter that corresponds to the fatty areas.

Oily skin on it …. fat is everywhere! Note in particular the excess sebum on the cheeks, is a combination skin will never have.


One thing you should know and that is common to both types of skin is that it is not because they secrete too much sebum it must be cleaned and excessive use of strong products and / or irritants such as such as those containing alcohol. I am aware that the effect of alcohol on the skin can be very pleasant because of its refreshing, especially for oily skin, because it appreciate to have a feeling of freshness and cleanliness.Choose instead of cleansers and toners that have menthol or other ingredients such as creating an action tingling and freshness. Alcohol is VERY irritating and drying to the skin whatsoever. So please, avoid products that contain it, you’ll wonder why more and you both rosacea and rosacea.

Also avoid bar soaps (even those designed for the face). Soaps are too drying and irritating too.

Another product to watch is the exfoliant. He is not here do not use it, however, but go sparingly. Exfoliation is very important as it removes dead skin that could potentially clog the pores and create blackheads or pimples. Again, oily skin exfoliate love because they feel more clean. Exfoliation should be done once a week for skin types mentioned in this article. An important point is the exfoliating how to use it. If you like, go smoothly! Excessive force equal opposite effect: the more you rub the small granules, the more you stimulate your sebaceous glands (which produce sebum) and you will have oily skin. In addition you will irritate your skin and redness causerez. Made rather light circular movements without pressing too hard.


Combination skin

Combination skin is actually a mixture of several types, as it has oily areas, normal areas and dry areas. It can be difficult to navigate in foster care.

Care system in the case of combination skin should be fairly moisturizing without being too rich. Use a cleansing milk and tonic without alcohol, then you moisturize carefully textured water-based fluid. If you really want to clean your skin with water, opt for gentle cleansers such as those designed “for all skin types” or “for normal skin / mixed”. Never use a treatment for oily skin or dry skin. If your skin feels tight after cleansing, it is probably because your cleanser is too strong and also because it is dehydrated. You can then obtain asystem of care for dehydrated skin . Some brands even offer skin care “mixed and dehydrated”, which is ideal. If you have small dead skin (desquamation), do yourself a scrub followed by a good moisturizing mask. There is no need to go after peeling moisturizing and again. They are dead skin, then it must be discarded.


Oily skin

Oily skin needs to be regularized. It must be clean and use moisturizing gel with a mattifying effect (which absorbs sebum and reduce shine) and seboregulator (which controls sebum production). Use a foaming cleanser non-irritating, pat dry (do not rub), then follow d” balancing tonic without alcohol. It is very important that you understand that even oily skin needs to be hydrated and do it twice a day with a mattifying day cream and night a little more moisturizing. Your Skin must be water-based. Look carefully containers and choose the “oil-free”. You can also make clay masks once a week, they make your skin clearer and dislodge your impurities.

If you have acne, the tips above are also suitable. Acne-prone skin should not be abused too, so no excessive rubbing and irritating product. Spot treatments with salicylic acid are still the best choice. Salicylic acid is as effective and less irritating than benzoyl peroxide.
