3 FAVOURITES FOR COMBINATION SKIN

Having combination skin can sometimes be a nightmare to control. Usually 9 out of the 12 months throughout the year my skin is very dry and sensitive, but the other months I suffer really badly with oily/greasy skin. I need to ensure that I use the right skincare products, depending on how my skin is reacting. So I thought I would share with you, my current 3 favourite products to target combination/oily skin.

AVENE CLEANANCE CLEANSING GEL

I chop and change cleansers way to often, even before I am halfway through a product! Currently, there are too many bottles left unloved in my bathroom cupboard right now, that I 'almost' feel sorry for them. The truth is that I get bored of cleansers easily, and it takes a lot for a cleanser to win me over to repurchase again. As my skin has dramatically changed this summer from its usual dry and sensitive complexion, to super oily. It was time to search for a new cleanser that could help. Avene Cleanance Cleansing Gel was one of the top recommendations on Feel Unique for oily, blemish prone skin. It claims to help purify the skin and regulate oil production, leaving the skin feeling fresh and clean.

I have been using this product morning and night for a couple of weeks now, and I can already see a difference with my skin! My severe oily areas have now calmed down, and my face feels fresher and softer without any signs of tightness. I no longer have trouble applying makeup in the morning, as my face is less oily and more controlled throughout the day. If anyone suffers from spot prone, oily skin, I definitely would recommend trying this product out and also a little goes a long way, which makes it great value for money! 

Hands down, I hardly ever use a toner after cleansing *Shocker*. Yes, I know I should, but I guess I haven't found one that actually claimed to do what it says on the bottle. That was until I tried the La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray. It is specifically designed to target key signs of oily, blemish-prone skin, and let me tell you, it works! This spray has made my face feel and look less greasy and more mattified. All you have to do is spray the product onto your skin after cleansing, leaving it to absorb for a few minutes before gently patting off any excess product. I like that it is quick and easy to use as a spray, rather than other toners dipped on cotton wool. This is a great product to use straight after the Avene Cleanance Cleansing Gel, and I have noticed that both products have helped regulate my oil production.

BALANCE ME, BALANCING FACE MOISTURISER

There are various symptoms that could trigger oily skin, but usually it's because the complexion is dehydrated and produces more oils to compensate for it. That being said, you need to make sure that you moisturise to keep the complexion hydrated, but with a product that is oil-free to balance the skin's natural levels.

Previously, I was using a moisturiser to soothe my dry/sensitive skin (suffering from combination skin is a bitch), but as it turned oily I needed a new moisturiser. I have heard good reviews about The Balance Me Balance Face Moisturiser and having experienced the brand before, I purchase it. This moisturiser has really helped replenish and hydrate my skin and also clear up my oily patches without irritation. I really like how soothing and lightweight this product is. The pump application works well, and one pump is all you need to fully hydrate your face, which makes the product last longer!
I would recommend all these products, as together they have worked wonderfully to replenish my oily/combination skin. Do you have any skincare favourites to target oily/combination skin?


Moisturisers for oily skin might seem counterintuitive but often, an oily complexion is down to dehydrated skin. To remedy a greasy complexion, you need an oil-free moisturiser that balances the skin's natural levels, and one that's mattifying and shine-reducing in its properties. Not too much to ask, is it?
