How to take care of combination or oily skin
First of all, it's important to understand the difference between the two. With large pores, high levels of moisture and a very shiny appearance, oily skin has a strong tendency to cause the appearance of pimples and blackheads, and has an irregular texture.
As its name suggests, combination skin is oily in some areas and normal or dry in others. The oily skin is mainly on the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) and, at the same time, its delicate texture encourages the appearance of fine lines and a tendency towards dry skin on the other parts of the face.
To start with, don't forget your day-to-day care. When you get home at the end of the day, remember to spend some time on your skin. If you wear make-up, make sure you remove it before going to bed. And, even if you don't wear make-up, cleanse your face to remove any pollution residue. This step is fundamental if you want to tackle the shiny appearance of your skin.
It is equally important to use the right cosmetic products. Chronos cleansing gel is an ideal option, it cleanses, removes make-up, tones and immediately reduces shine while leaving your face dry and radiant. Chronos mattifying moisturiser completes this routine, helping to manage shine and sebum production. It contains SPF 15/UVA-PF 5 sun protection, is mattifying and protects the skin's natural pH level. All this as well as a light texture, dry feel and quick absorption.
Caring for normal to dry skin
Normal skin is balanced, its texture is soft and supple, without excessive sebum production. The pores are closed and hardly visible, giving the face a smooth, silky appearance.
Rather rough and dull in appearance, dry skin shows signs of irritation and dryness. A lack of water, which causes dehydration, is one of the main causes of this problem.
People with normal skin should follow a daily skin care routine to prevent any dermatological problems. On the other hand, those with dry skin should avoid the use of cosmetics containing alcohol because they contribute to drying out the epidermis. Very hot water is also believed to be harmful to your skin because it prevents the natural production of sebum. Last but not least, don't skimp on hydration, especially after showering, when your pores are open and more receptive to absorbing nutrients.
We suggest you use creamy soaps, which are very effective in both cases. The creamy consistency not only prevents skin from drying out but, due to its formula with a high concentration of plant based oils, also cleanses, invigorates and tones the epidermis. A protective moisturiser applied after the soap to moisturise, protect and nourish the skin will form the other half of this unbeatable duo. It contains Cupuaçu butter and rice proteins which help to maintain the natural pH of the epidermis. With an easily absorbed, light texture, it leaves your face silky and radiant.
