Combination skin is a mix of oily and dry areas on different parts of your face. Often people scrub their faces or look to strong face washes to counter the oiliness, but those both can irritate your skin and increase oil production. Use a mild cleanser to maintain the skin's moisture balance - for both the oily and dry areas. For a greasy and shiny T-zone, a gentle exfoliating cleanser can help remove dead skin cells, open clogged pores, and at the same time, gently remove makeup and impurities without drying out the skin.
Tip: Always remove makeup before going to sleep at night.
A serum can be used as a step before your day and night cream, and it is a wonderful face smoothing booster for your skin. ACO's Pure Glow Perfecting Serum is a very concentrated, light serum specially developed for adult skin. It has an intensely moisturizing effect, which gives a smooth skin tone with a natural glow. Niacinamide smooths the skin and reduces pigmentation spots. Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E can work together to protect the skin from free radicals and to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
The skin around the eyes is thin and particularly sensitive. It is therefore important to use a cream that is especially suitable for this area. Eye cream is intensely nourishing. It can strengthen the skin barrier and reduce redness.
The oily areas of the face also need regular hydration. It is important to apply moisturizer daily. ACO Pure Glow Day Cream contains Sarcosine which can counteract oily areas and mattify shiny areas. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid, which binds moisture and promotes skin elasticity.
Give the skin an extra kick with an exfoliator once or twice per week. This removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean. However, it is important to treat the areas of the face that feel dry and sensitive with caution, as the exfoliation can cause irritation, and the protective barrier of the skin can be damaged. Our cleansing face scrub exfoliates gently and naturally with the powdered stem of bamboo.
