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!

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!

How To Give Your Skin Youthful Energy By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Your skin had more energy when you were younger, more elasticity, vibrancy and glow. But as you age, sun damage, smoking and diet all wreak havoc causing you to lose that youthful glow.

Then Mother Nature starts banging on your door telling you it’s time to pay the piper. The nerve! So now you’ve got a double whammy. Does that mean your youthful glow and facial energy are gone forever? Far from it!

With Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, you can safely and gently bring it back by creating NEW collagen and connective tissue. Yes, even after the first treatment your skin will be smoother!

Say goodbye to:

– Brown spots
– Broken capillaries
– Redness of the skin (erythema)
– Even rosacea!

IPL tackles both the effects of natural aging and the premature aging practices of our youth. What a deal!

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!
