Skin Type - Normal/Combination Skin:

Before I start so sorry for the delayed blogging the last couple of weeks has been sooooo stressful and I've been so busy @ work and I am still crazy busy.

A lot of things has happen since my last content but that's a story to be told in my diary. This is a personal blogging site with my own opinion about fashion, beauty, health etc so lets keep it that way haha! 

Anyways soooo I decided to to skin type - Normal / Combination today!


This skin type is usually the toughest skin type to deal with because you are dealing with two skin types at the same time. If you have this skin type don't think it doesn't need to be taken care of like any other skin types, it also needs it TLC. 
This skin type has a good oil and water balance. Deep cleansing and exfoliation can keep your skin clear from pimples and blemishes to minimum. 

Characteristics of Normal / Combination Skin
  • Oily T-zone (nose, forehead and chin)
  • Mostly blemish and pimple free. 
  • Consistent plump, moist and vibrant.
  • Some areas look dry and flaky (usually the cheeks).
  • Pimples and blackheads in oily areas (occasionally).
Treatments and products 
Best way to treat combination skin is to treat the main problem first.
  • Use Thermal cleanser (they usually have exfoliants in).
  • Foam cleansers
  • Toner - Skin tonics that contain 0 - 20% of alcohol and water. Example orange flower water.
  • Combination skin requires gentle oil control as well as moisture to ensure an even healthier skin.
  • Moisturizer - You may need various moisturizers. Use a richer moisturizer on the drier areas.
  • Before you touch your face (don't touch if not necessary), wash your hands.
Natural Ingredients for Normal / Combination skin:
  • Green Tea Extract
  • Rosemary Extract
  • Witch Hazel
  • Orange Flower Extract 
  • Banana
  • Calendula (Marigold Flower)
Suitable facials for Normal / Combination Skin:
  • Normal Facials
  • Bio-lift Facials
  • Collagen Facials
  • Exfoliating Facials

So have a great weekend ladies and gents!

Be save!!!
