The normal skin
Who isn’t dreaming of a “normal” skin? No dandruff, which is finely visible on the skin. An even complexion whose appearance is not disturbed by blackheads or other annoying impurities. In order to maintain the natural functions of this skin type as long as possible, it is advisable to also provide this skin with the appropriate skin care. This can also decelerate the aging process and still strengthen the protective function of the skin.
The combination skin
The term is used in cosmetics when the skin is strongly characterized by oily as well as dry parts. It is the most common skin condition. In this case, the T-zone is often affected by an overproduction of skin fat and can appear shiny. Moreover can
the skin here show comedones. In contrast, other parts of the face, such as the cheek area, are often dry and can appear cracked and chapped – especially in the cold months.
Combination skin has its strongest manifestation at a young age, with the skin’s appearance, over the years,

Guide for combination skin

Do and Don't for combination skin
Treat the respective parts of the skin individually
Using a mechanical peeling. This can have a counterproductive effect if used incorrectly. Rather resort to an enzymatic peeling.
Our skin not only protects us from external influences, but is also our largest organ at the same time. It provides for a regulated heat exchange and for the transpiration process.
Our skin is built up in three layers. The top layer, the so-called epidermis consists of 90% horny layer and renews itself regularly. The dermis forms the second layer, which provides elastic skin through its connective tissue fibers. It is particularly affected by the natural aging process of the skin. The subcutis serves as cold protection and energy storage and consists of loose connective and fatty tissue.
