All skin types require special care since the needs of each one are different. In this dermatip we will provide you with some recommendations that you can take into account to give your skin the ideal care. Let's get started!

Mainly we must identify the differences between a mixed skin and a greasy one, since sometimes it can be confusing to identify between the two.

Oily skin is characterized by generating excess sebum all over the face and in some cases it tends to be acne-prone, so blemishes could arise as a result; while combination skin is characterized only by presenting sebum in the "T zone" (that is, chin, nose and forehead). And you, have you already identified your skin type? If the answer is yes and you have oily skin, these recommendations are for you.

To meet the needs of this type of skin, it is important to form a daily routine that includes:

  1. Cleaning , this should be done with the ideal products for oily skin, which work as calming and seboregulators or, well, products that contain salicylic acid as it helps to clean the pore in depth and regulates the production of fat.
  1. Exfoliation , we have continually heard that it is not advisable to abuse exfoliants, however, in oily skin this step should be more frequent to reduce excess sebum. Use it 1 to 2 times a week (at night) if your skin tends to have inflammatory acne, always using the products indicated by your dermatologist while, if your skin is acne-free, you can apply it 3 to 4 nights per week. week. Use products that contain glycolic acid if you have acne blemishes.
  1. Hydration , practice it in the morning with a light serum based on water and hyaluronic acid to avoid dehydration during the day, at night with an active ingredient that helps reduce fat production, such as those that contain retinol.

To complement the ideal care for oily skin, the key is in Oil Free and non-comedogenic products since they are free of lipids and oils, you can also opt for light textures such as serums and gels or even vials.

Remember that if you have any specific condition you should consult your dermatologist.
