Ask anybody with combination skin, it can be a nightmare! With both oily and dry conditions, you really have to treat both for your skin to be happy. That’s not as hard as it sounds, thankfully.

Your skin can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). Many people have this type. It may need slightly different care in different areas.

Combination skin can have:

  • Pores that look larger than normal, because they’re more open
  • Blackheads
  • Shiny skin

Our skincare products are designed for all skin types. And that means we can effectively treat combination skin without a lot of hassle. Set up a skin consult and share with us your challenges. We’ll tailor a home care program just for you.

Also consider these tips for taming combination skin. You might find them surprising. Be sure to bring your questions with you to your consult:

• Exfoliate regularly. This will reduce oil production, clear pores and remove drier, flaky skin. And your make-up will perform better, too! But how much exfoliating do you need? Once we see your skin and its condition, we can guide you there.

• Use a toner. And no, we aren’t talking Sea Breeze or benzoyl peroxide. These products strip your skin. Go with a toner that has real science behind it like our line. Our toners have anti-inflammatory agents, vitamin C and soothing ingredients that nourish and balance combination skin.

• Embrace oils. Surprised? Your skin is composed of oil and its constantly seeking to balance oil production properly. Using “oil free” products just encourage your skin to rush in and make more, as well as blemishes and breakouts. Use a high end oil which has vitamin E and essential fatty acids on the drier areas of your skin. Again, we can counsel you further on this.

• Use an all natural mineral make-up line. This will keep the dry and oily parts of your skin in harmony.

Be patient. It may take three months for changes to occur. However, we have other treatments that can cut that waiting period down dramatically. Be sure to ask us about them!

These Sneaky Habits Can Cause Acne By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

What gives? You’re way past high school but your skin is still stuck in adolescence. Grrrr! It’s enough to make even the most patient person lose their cool.

Acne-prone people are born with four to five times more skin cells than the average person. They also produce more oil (like you didn’t know that, right?) If you’re doing everything you know to do to keep acne at bay, but are still fighting it, here are a few factors that contribute to this pesky problem:

Makeup with the artificial colors FD & C. It can cause breakouts around your mouth and cheeks. Lanolin, mineral oil, petroleum, Isopropyl Myristate and artificial fragrance all irritate your acne-prone skin.

Over-drying your face. This actually causes your skin to produce more oil, and you definitely don’t want that! Keep skin hydrated. We can show you how.

Physical Pressure. Constant cell phone use, resting your hand on your face, and so on, not only exposes your skin to bacteria, but forces the bacteria into your skin.

Stress. It’s not enough that stress causes premature aging but it also increases the hormone that causes acne. Work out, go for a walk, or whatever it takes to get your emotions settled down.

Laundry. Change out your pillowcase twice a week. Make sure that towel you use to dry your face hasn’t seen a week’s worth of activity.

Diet. No, it’s not conclusive that what you eat shows up on your skin, but it makes sense. Get rid of processed foods! Opt for a healthier diet.

Make us a partner in your lifestyle changes with our professional skincare treatments. Together we can get you the skin you want and deserve!

How To Treat Tight, Dry Facial Skin By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

How To Treat Tight, Dry Facial Skin By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

It feels awful, doesn’t it? Tight, dry facial skin is not only uncomfortable, but it’s actually visible!

Known as dehydrated skin, that tight, dry feeling looks dull. Make-up doesn’t perform nearly as well and can accentuate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

You may think of dehydrated skin as a winter problem, but the sun can wreak just as much havoc.

What can you do? Monthly facials work the lymphatic system to remove toxins, stimulate circulation and allow for deeper product penetration. They are the foundation from which all other products and services work.

For your home care, make sure to add a serum for dehydrated skin.

Because your skin is lacking water, it needs a boost of water-attracting molecules like naturally occurring hyaluronic acid.

We can help you there. For your moisturizer, it’s important to understand that thicker is not necessarily more effective.

Moisturizers laden with petroleum and mineral oil simply clog the skin, promoting more dryness and wrinkles.

If your skin is tight and dry, it’s asking for help! Set up a skin consult and we’ll get you and your skin talking nice to each other in no time.

Seems too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, before you write it off as just another pipe dream, take a look at the simple steps you can do to get your skin glowing.

Wear sunscreen all year. We simply can’t say this enough. If you want to minimize existing sun damage and prevent further damage to your skin, wear sunscreen. Choose a high SPF, even if you aren’t going to be outdoors a lot or the day is overcast.

We have moisturizers that already have a high quality SPF. Plus, we can help you choose one that’s perfect for your skin. No guessing games!

Use The Right Skin Care Products. Do you know the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin? Products that are too heavy will make your skin break out, if you don’t understand these skin conditions.

Oily skin needs a moisturizer, but just like other skin conditions, it has to be very specific. The product should not make your skin feel oily. Giving your skin what it needs makes it glow! This is why a skin consult is so valuable.

Exfoliate And Mask. These are both terrific anti-aging steps! You can easily exfoliate in the shower and add masking once on the weekend. Done!

Don’t forget to choose plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as lean proteins in your diet. These are great skin rejuvenators. Processed foods really wreck your skin!

It really doesn’t take a lot of effort to get your skin glowing; it just takes good habits repeated over and over again.

If you stray, don’t worry. That’s called life! Just get back on the right path tomorrow.

Do you have a shine by 11 a.m.? Already dreading what your face will look like by 5 p.m.?

We hear you! You want relief and you want it yesterday. By now you know the oily skin basics.

• Use skin care products designed for your oily skin

• Don’t over dry your skin. You’ll just create more oil

• Make sure everything you use is oil-free

But when these steps aren’t enough, it’s time to add more punch to your skin care.

Add a water-based serum that also contains hyaluronic acid, or HA, a naturally occurring substance in your body. HA attracts 1000% more water than its weight. That’s good news for your oily skin because water is what it’s missing. Continued use of HA reduces oil.

Exfoliate. When pores are clogged, nothing is moving. Your skin feels dry and rough, which makes your oil glands work even harder to try and lubricate your skin.

That’s why exfoliation is so important. At home, choose a clay mask to stimulate circulation and draw out impurities. Another good exfoliant is an enzyme mask with papaya, bromelain, or pumpkin. All are excellent exfoliants.

Professional Fruit Acid Peel. An alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acid treatment will clear clogged pores, minimize size and allow much better penetration of your skin care products.

Are you sensing a theme here? Exfoliation is the key to unclogging your pores, refining your skin, and allowing products to work more efficiently.

The results are reflected beautifully on your face!
