Combination skin is characterised by the presence of two skin types - usually an oily “T-zone” and normal or drier, dehydrated areas. The so-called “T-zone” can differ substantially – from a very narrow zone to an extended area.
Oily areas can appear shiny with clearly visible, enlarged pores and can be prone to spots.
The areas of normal skin feel comfortable, have barely visible pores and look healthy. The use of products dedicated for oily skin may cause dryness of this area.
Like all skin types, combination skin can become dehydrated.
Dehydration can be caused by the use of over drying cosmetics /medication, which can result in ‘over stripping’ of the natural sebum.
Dehydration can also be caused by an unhealthy diet low in essential fatty acids, insufficient water intake, long hot baths or showers, central heating and air conditioning, extreme weather conditions and harsh use of face cloths.
Vedani Botanicals has developed light to medium texture products to suit oily/normal combination skin.
If there is an area that is particularly dehydrated, Vedani Botanicals rich moisturiser may be needed for extra protection.
