Combinational skin

Combination skins are very common and are one of the most frequently misunderstood and mistreated skins. This type of skin has a greasy area, while the rest is dry or normal. The forehead, nose and chin i.e. the T-zone, may be greasy and the rest dry. It requires separate treatment for each area. Both the dry and greasy areas need moisturizing.

Care for combination skin

Clean the entire face twice a day with a mild cleanser. Apply a good moisturizer on the dry areas of the face as moisturizing the skin increases the penetration of water into the skin and reduces the rate at which water evaporates from the surface of the skin. For the oily areas apply any kind of oil absorbing creams and lotions.


Cleansing creams

Cucumber cleansing cream:

Melt the oils and wax in a pan over boiling water. Simultaneously heat the cucumber juice, glycerine, green colour and borax in a separate bowl. When the oil is melted and warm add water drop by drop and stir continuously. Now remove it from the heat and beat until it gets thick and cool. The cream should be made in a small quantity, as cucumber juice gets bad and it should be kept in the refrigerator.

  • Bees wax
  • Three teaspoons Coconut oil
  • Four teaspoons Olive oil
  • Five teaspoons Cucumber juice
  • Four tablespoons Glycerine
  • One teaspoon Borax
  • A pinch Green colour- One drop

Violet Cleansing Cream Lanolin

Half tablespoon Petroleum jelly - One tablespoon Olive oil - Four tablespoon Water - Ten tablespoons Violet extract - Five drops Melt the oils and heat the water. Mix them together while stirring slowly and continuously. Remove from the heat and continue to beat together.
