A Routine Worth Fixating Over for Normal/Combination Skin

pg19-2.jpg

If you want to break up with your skin over irreconcilable differences, you probably have a NORMAL/COMBINATION complexion. It’s like your T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) has excess oil for days, while the rest of your face feels drier. So what do you do when different parts of your face want different things?

Normal/combination skin is the most common skin type. You get the best, and worst, of both worlds. Customize with a routine that’s all about compromise for skin that looks balanced:

DAILY

Cleanse: Bright Young Thang™ Face Wash

Serum: Never Grow Up™ Serum

Eyes: Prize on the Eyes™ Eye Crème

Moisturize: Moisturize 911™ Caffeinated Face Crème

WEEKLY

Whole Lava Love™ Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

All I’ve Avo Wanted™ Hydrating, Nourishing Face Mask

BONUS

Exsqueeze Me™ Super C Toner

WHY

Bright Young Thang Face Wash gently cleanses and invigorates skin with ginseng without drying your cheeks. Following with 3 pumps of Never Grow Up Serum ensures drier areas get the antioxidant boost they’re craving, but its lightweight, aloe based formula is perfect for your T-zone, too. Treat the corners of your eyes and under eye area, which are prone to fine lines and wrinkles, with Prize on the Eyes—formulated with moisturizing cocoa butter—and wake up wishy washy skin with a dime-sized amount of brightening Moisturize 911. It contains caffeine to help dry skin look fresh, plus glycerin to lock in hydration without a greasy feel.

HOW

Exfoliating regularly benefits both dry and oily skin. 1–2 times a week, gently massage skin with Whole Lava Love, made with eco-beads to scrub dull, dry skin away and tea tree oil to help clear clogged pores on your nose and chin. After rinsing, apply an ON mask like All I’ve Avo Wanted to help add moisture back into your skin with creamy avocado and olive oil, plus a touch of milk, which contains lactic acid for a clearer looking complexion.

WHEN

A quick spritz of Exsqueeze Me after your cleanser, but before your serum, helps skin look balanced by brightening dull spots with a burst of citrus fruit, which also helps control shine on your forehead, nose, and chin. You can even use it throughout the day to refresh your complexion

Pro Tip:

  • Normal/combination skin requires a mix of various products to stay balanced, but stick to products formulated for your face; never use a bath bar or body butter on your face
