Masks for combination skin at home
There are three main types of facial skin: dry, oily and combination. Each of them needs its own special care so that the skin retains its freshness and healthy color for many years. Since ancient times, masks based on natural ingredients have been the most effective way to care for the face. If you do not have money for a beautician, and there is no confidence in the drugs on the shelves in stores, you can maintain beauty with the help of homemade masks from improvised ingredients.
Features of combination skin
Combined skin type – This is the most common type of facial skin, which is characterized by oily T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and dry cheeks. The cause of fatness is the excessive production of the hormone testosterone by the body, which is why the mixed type is more common in adolescents. In adults, the skin is often of a normal type.
The sebaceous glands in the T-zone secrete excess sebum, so it is in these areas that clogging of pores with dirt and dust most often occurs, blackheads and pimples appear.
Combination skin type is considered the most difficult to care for, as dry and oily areas require a different approach.
With a combination skin type, you can not use one care product for the entire face. Dry skin lacks moisture, while oily skin needs other products.
Masks, especially homemade ones, are more harmless than chemicals sold on the shelves in stores and pharmacies. However, they are also not recommended to be applied to the entire face. The ingredients used in masks have different effects. For this reason, there are several types of facial products: cleansing, nourishing, moisturizing, exfoliating, toning, anti-acne and anti-wrinkle.
Recipes for moisturizing masks
Moisturizing is important for our skin, because if the skin does not have enough moisture, it will become dry and flaky. The dermis needs hydration and nutrition in the autumn-winter period, when there is a deficiency of vitamins and cold winds blow.
Masks for dry skin at home are designed to soften the skin, moisturizing it and filling it with nutrients.
However, do not apply a moisturizing mask only on dry areas of the face. One day make such a mask, the next you can make a mask to normalize the work of the sebaceous glands. You will quickly feel and see the result from homemade masks.
The best nourishing and rejuvenating face masks at home for combination skin are made on the basis of cottage cheese, plus they also have a whitening effect. This method is suitable for everyone. Moisturizing, nutrition and a good exfoliating result are the main features.
