Combination/ Oily Skin

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies, I was just wondering what type of lotions, cleansers, toners all that good stuff, you'd recommend for Combination/ Oily skin... My T-Zone gets pretty oily, but I usually also get dry flaky skin around my nose and where my eyebrows meet my nose... I just started using the Olay Oil Minimizing Foaming face wash and the toner. Oh and I keep breaking out, but I was breaking out long before I started using Olay... Anyways, thank you for your time :) <3

My skin is combo also and it used to be more oily than it is now. At the same time I used to get flaking also. I think I was using products that were too drying which caused the flaking and over production of oil. Skin oils are a great way to moisturize the skin even when your skin is oily. Skin oils actually help to control the oiliness. I like Argan oil for night time. For day time it's a bit heavy. I love camellia oil for anytime. I like Neutrogena naturals cleanser. It doesn't seem to over dry my skin. I'm also loving the Olay Pro X cleanser brush for deep cleaning my pores. It really seems to make a difference.

We had a reader asking for help on her combo skin and recommended products that 

"has to be hydrating and moisturising enough, yet at the same time not sticky and helps to balance the skin sebum secretion. One of common mistake people make is topping up on oil-based cream and forgetting about the quintessential hydration. Our selection choice will be based on both - hydrating first and then an oil-based solution to trap moisture."

I swear by Cerave foaming facial cleanser. It has been a miracle for me, along with Clearasil vanishing acne treatment.

I use either aleppo soap, or oil cleansing (ricebran and grapeseed). For toners, i like to use floral waters, for oil control i would suggest lavender. Otherwise, chamomile is a good choice.

For moisturizers, i currently use an aloe vera moisturizer from the brand Logona (for the hydration part), and the cream 93 from Yonka, more expensive but good for oil control. The flakes are probably due to dehydration, so i would suggest you use an oil control moisturizer for day, and a more rich hydrating cream at night. Aloe vera is good for that, you can buy it pure or a moisturizer that contains it as main ingredient.

I use a sunscreen from la Roche Posay, they have a line for oily skins that work well on my skin. If you do'nt already, try to use a lightweight sunscreen for combination to oily skins, sun is a false friend for acne so sunscreen helps dealing with this issue.

I can also add a mask, the cheapest (and effective) remains clay, green or white.

For the breakouts, i like to use essential oils as spot treatment (one drop on a q-tip, no more), tea tree oil is too strong, instead i can suggest lavender (also helps with the scarring issue), or grapefruit, lemon. But those last two have to be used at night as they're phototoxic.

    • Content and Mechanism of ActionIn the competition between "FILDENA VS VIAGRA", it can be considered a draw when it comes to their active pharmaceutical ingredients and their drug action. Both the legendary Viagra drug and the generic Fildena products contain the same Sildenafil Citrate (PDE5 inhibitor), which means they have the same mechanism of action for impotence treatment.

    • Experimenting with different hair care products is not a good idea. For temporary, you can use hair extensions to make a hairstyle that you want. Other than that I will suggest you use onion juice twice a week. You will see results in your hair growth. Along with this you should use coconut oil. For more guidance visit aysanhairdesign.com.au
