How to Succeed in the Balancing Act
Very often skin appears confused. It can be oily in one place and dehydrated in another, or dry in one place and normal in another. What can you do to even out the score?
Below are some products that shine in mixed skin situations. Here are also some tips that can help.
You can treat different areas of your face differently. You can place two layers of a light moisturizer on the drier areas of your face, and only one layer or use a lighter formulation on the oiler areas. When masking, you can do the same thing: use a clay mask that will absorb oils and impurities on the oiler parts of your face, and a nourishing, hydrating mask on the drier parts.
Always cleanse your face properly, it is the key to maximizing your complexion. Use a cleanser that is gentle enough not to strip the drier areas of the face, but thorough enough to remove dirt, oil and impurities from the oilier areas.
Nourish the skin from the inside as well as the outside. Research supports the notion that the skin is capable of absorbing nutrients topically applied, and that a good formulation will noticably improve the skin's texture and appearance. Your moisturizer should contain nutrient-rich botanicals and vitamins that will help bring harmony to the skin.
