How to care for combination skin in summer

Caring for combination skin may seem difficult but in fact, it’s not. It’s enough to keep a few simple rules so that cosmetics used on the oily parts of your face (forehead, nose and chin) will no longer dry the areas that tend to be dry anyway.

The biggest favour you can do to your skin in summer is that you let it breathe. Don’t let stray hair locks irritate your face: comb your hair away from your face whenever you can.

Beware of the following:

1. Face wash – be gentle!

If you wash your face twice a day, choose natural soap that’s gentle even on the sensitive, stretchy or peeling areas of your skin. Use the one that fits you best. I recommend especially White Satin Facial Cleansing Soap, Honey&Goat Milk Soap or our scent-free Manna soaps that are suitable for children and babies too.

2. Face mask – caution on that too!

The wisest thing to do is to choose a mask with cosmetic-grade clay which cleanses your skin, makes it softer and absorb excess sebum without causing irritation. In Manna’s range, the one with white clay and the one with alginate are the best choice for your combination skin. 

3. Facial scrub – be gentle!

Take extra care when going about it. Don’t scrub the areas that are dry or tend to get dry, scrub only the oily parts up to twice a week. Choose a fine-grain scrub and apply an Alginite Skin Regenaration Mask with a few drops of Beauty Oil every day. When using the mask massage the oily, blackhead-affected areas with gentle finger movements.

4. Cleansing

You can pamper your combination skin with Rose or Camomile flower water. After face wash, you can wipe the shiny areas with a cotton wad (wet with some water and apple cider vinegar) to constrict your pores.

5. Chemical-free butters and oils instead of creams

If your skin is sensitive to some of the chemicals that are routinely used by the cosmetics industry then consider replacing your water-based cream with natural vegetable oil or butter. For combination skin I recommend Argan Oil and Shea Butter. Whichever you choose, use it like this: massage a little bit of it into your wet skin directly after face wash and/or cleansing.
