At a young age, skin care was introduced to me by my mother, as she would always apply Pond’s Cold Cream (which you see listed for three of the skin types — because it is that good!) to her face to remove her makeup. After that, at the age of 15, a family member of mine took me to a Clinique counter and let me have my first full facial by the associate there. I was so amazed and took in as much information as I could. Since then, I have become interested in proper skin care and how to treat different skin types. I have learned and trying products on myself, so, I am sharing some of my favorite products that should work on a few different skin types.
A weekly or bi-weekly facial wash or scrub is good for this skin type. Look for moisturizers that have SPF in it.
Oily skin types should look for oil-free cleansers to diffuse excess sebum of the skin. Keep your skin hydrated throughout the day to battle your skin from producing more oil.
Use products that have a high water content to aid in hydration of the skin. Look for moisturizers that protect against water loss and that have SPF in it.
Combination skin is a form of sensitive skin, so look for facial washes that balance your skin type.
Sensitive skin types should use hypoallergenic cleansers that are formulated, only, for sensitive skin. Do avoid products containing alcohol and perfume and do avoid products with scrubbing beads. Certain beads in facial cleansers can irritate the skin and cause more problems.
