With today’s vast array of moisturizing products it becomes exceedingly difficult to choose the best product for your skin type. It is especially difficult for those with a combination skin. How do we navigate the thin line between flaky dry skin and oily breakouts? Health magazine looks to the professionals, dermatologists and facial rejuvenation experts, to advise readers with this common but tricky skin type.
Combination skin has both dry and oily areas on different points of the face. This usually happens in response to hormonal changes, menopause or possibly using the wrong skin products. An ideal product for people with this skin type are moisturizers that are lightweight enough to avoid clogging the pores while providing deep hydration. Dr. Konstantin recommends Oxygenetix Oxygenating Moisturizer, which Health names the “most gentle” option on its list of ten best moisturizers for combination skin.
“This fragrance free option is formulated with top-notch ingredients that hydrate and replenish the most sensitive skin types; grape seed extract helps increase cell turnover, green tea extract improves the skin’s natural moisture, and aloe vera soothes inflammation and irritation across the skin.” Health describes Dr. K’s moisturizer recommendation. The article provides an Amazon link to Oxygenetix Oxygenating Moisturizer as well as the other products included in its list.
