It’s tone time! For most of us, our first experience with face toner likely involved very harsh formulas, which left our skin feeling tight and stripped of moisture.
If you’re familiar with our Skin Sets, you’ve surely noticed offerings for both oily and dry skin types. But what about anyone with combination skin? If your skin type is stuck somewhere in the middle of the oil production spectrum, you’re not alone. Did you know combination skin is the most common skin type out there? And it’s exactly what the name says- a combination of both oily and dry skin, where you may produce excess oil in the t-zone but experience dryness in the cheek area- all in the same day!
If you’re serious about skincare then you understand the importance of knowing what’s in your products. There’s nothing worse than realizing months into a regimen that you’ve been using the wrong products for your individual skin type. For those of you who skew on the oily side, mattifying products are essential to your routine. They help combat your excess oil whether it’s an all day issue or a late afternoon shine.
Sometimes the best beauty ingredients come right from the ground, or the vine. Vine-Eco, an extract from grape leaves, is a stand-out skincare ingredient that has provided multiple health benefits for thousands of years. Used widely across the world, this essential element plays a huge role in managing and preventing environmental damage, as it is packed with a variety of potent antioxidants.
One of the major issues facing Combination Skin Types is the cheek-area dehydration. All over hydration is the key to youthful skin, regardless of skin type, but it can be difficult to find a product that hydrates while also addressing areas with excess oil production. A great ingredient that moisturizes and combats cheek dehydration is AcquaCell™. This natural complex of Watermelon, Lentil and Apple Extracts targets key moisturizing elements of the stratum corneum.
