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!

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.

It’s that wonderful time of year. The weather is changing and your skin is probably grumbling.

What can you do now to prepare for the colder months ahead? Let’s take a look.

How To Transition Your Skincare Needs

Take a look at what you’re using. Does your skin feel tight and dry after you’ve cleansed and moisturized? Then it’s time to swap out your warm weather cleanser for a more hydrating one.

Cool air robs your skin of its natural oils. Without these oils your complexion will become dry and dull. Step up your moisturizer to one that’s more emollient. This will help reduce water loss on the surface of your skin.

Add a hydrating serum to keep skin from feeling tight and dry, and to plump it up. And don’t forget to exfoliate! So many people think this step can be skipped in colder months.

Not so! Exfoliation clears away old dead skin cells that create a dull complexion. It also enhances the effects of ALL your other products.

Add facials! Facials work deeply to hydrate, regulate the immune system, prevent wrinkles, clarify and tone the skin.

And lastly, this is no time to skimp on sunscreen! Protecting your skin from environmental assault is a yearlong commitment.

If you need some assistance transitioning your skincare, just let us know. We’re here to help!

Before you can say, what happened, these three habits have a way of sneaking up and wreaking havoc on your skin.

Let’s see what they are and what you can do about them.

DIY Facials- It’s so tempting to squeeze that zit or chip away at the edge of a scab. But, if you pick a pimple until it bleeds, you’re injuring your skin! And that can lead to scarring.

If you must squeeze a pimple, do it gently, Better yet, let us do it. We’ll handle that little monster with the greatest of care.

Sleeping with your make-up on. As much as we’ve harped on this, you should know by now that this bad habit not only ages your skin up to four days in one night, but it creates a breeding ground for bacteria. That means blackheads and pimples.

Even if you think you can’t wash your face before hitting the hay, consider a pre-moistened towelette to remove the day’s make-up and grime.

Hanging on to outdated cosmetics- If you can’t remember the last time you used it, it’s probably been longer than three months.

Toss it! Just like sleeping with your make-up on, outdated products are bacteria-breeding farm. Yes, we all love to save money, but a healthy dose of commonsense goes just as far. Mark the date on the container when you buy it. Better to be safe than sorry!

These three skin saboteurs are really more about time and lifestyle choices. They’re easy to slip into, and with a little effort, just as easy to slip out of.

When you think of snacking, you probably think of junk food like pretzels and ice cream. But did you know that some snacking is actually good for your skin?

Eating every few hours is a good way to keep your blood glucose, or blood sugar, stable.

That means fewer breakouts, rashes and wrinkles. But what snacks help your skin? Those that contain fiber, protein and healthy fats.

Instead of opting for rice cakes or pretzels, which break down quickly in your body, choose nuts or hummus with a gluten-free cracker.

Strawberries with dark chocolate are also a sweet treat. But if the berries aren’t in season, just go for a small amount of the dark chocolate. Research shows that it helps us have smoother, moist skin. Plus, cocoa is high in antioxidants.

Nuts, which are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, have the ability to diminish wrinkles! Choose walnuts, almonds, pistachios and hazelnuts. They are rich in omega 3’s and offer skin-plumping benefits, too.

Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins C and A. Both are essential for healthy glowing skin. Choose sweet potato chips to help you get and keep great skin. The important thing here is to gradually move away from very processed snacks.

Initially, you might not feel as satisfied, but as your tastes change—and they will—you’ll find you eat less and look healthier!
