Skincare tips for optimal makeup results

  1. One of the most important elements in all skincare is drinking plenty of water.
  2. Try drinking a glass of fresh lemon water as soon as you wake up in the morning.
  3. Splash your face with ice cold water before you begin your skincare regime.
  4. Ladies with oiler skins tend to prefer using a face wash as opposed to a creamy cleanser. A foamy facial wash is recommended for oily skins.

2. Skincare tips for combination Skin

  • Combination skin is one of the most common skin-types in South Africa.
  • The ‘oily T zone’ tends to produce more oil than the cheek area, and thus resulting in a combination skin-type.
  • During the summer months, there is usually more oil production within the T zone, and in winter we find that there is not as much oil production as in the more humid and moist summer months.
  • Combination skins can sometimes become very dehydrated because there is more effort focused on balancing the skin and controlling the oiler areas, and sometimes the skin suffers from dehydration as a result.

  1. Water intake (and diet and lifestyle) is very important when wanting a great skin!
  2. There are great products available today, which are specifically targeted at combination skins. Find a regime that suits your lifestyle and feels great on your skin.
  3. Either a foaming facial wash OR a milky / creamy cleanser may be used on combination skins.

  5. When selecting a moisturizer, consider sun protection as well as oil balancing properties.
  6. Depending on the maturity of the skin, an oil free foundation is recommended.
  7. Remember that exfoliation is essential – twice a week for combination skins should be ample.
