The best natural products for combination skin

Looking after combination skin requires balancing the dry and oily areas of your skin to promote an even complexion. Our organic skin care collection contains all of the essential elements to achieve this delicate balance and help you manage your combination skin naturally.

We use natural ingredients such as Willow Bark, Larch and Green Tea to deeply cleanse the skin and fight blemishes, whilst Aloe Vera and Chamomile moisturise and rebalance the skin.

All of our natural skin care products are free from harsh ingredients such as SLS and drying alcohol (ethanol/ethyl alcohol), which can create even more excessive extremes for combination skin.

What is combination skin?

If the skin on your forehead and around your nose (the 'T-zone') is oily while the rest of your face is normal or dry, you have combination skin.

Your skin may be aggravated by changes in the weather, climate, diet, exercise and emotional well-being.

 

4 tips for effective combination skin care

  • Use a gentle cleanser that does not leave skin feeling tight or dry
  • Avoid bar soaps or bar cleansers of any kind. The ingredients are always more drying than those used in a gentle soap-free cleansing lotion
  • Opt for an alcohol-free, water-based serum containing antioxidants and moisture-binding plant actives
  • Treat dry areas (including around the eyes) with a moisturiser containing antioxidants, moisture-binding plant actives and ingredients that mimic the structure and function of healthy skin. 

A serum-type product may be all your dry areas need to look and feel better. More extreme dryness will benefit from an antioxidant-rich serum paired with an emollient moisturiser.

     

    Diet for combination skin

    • Eat plenty of leafy green vegetables and fresh fruits
    • A deficiency of vitamin B2 can cause oily skin. Good sources include brewer's yeast, whole grains, beans and nuts.
    • Buckwheat, black beans and whole rice are rich in iron, which can rejuvenate the skin
    • Add plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids to your diet
    • Drink lots of filtered water to both keep your skin hydrated and flush out toxins
    • Avoid saturated and hydrogenated fats, fired and highly seasoned foods, soft drinks, alcohol, sugar, chocolate and junk food
