When it comes to skincare, we here at Beauty Coach know that the endgame is clear: Achieving a complexion that’s bright, luminous, and balanced. And as any beauty-devotee will tell you, beauty-boosting lotions and potions are the best way to get there, fast. But having combination skin can complicate things, and quick! Too little moisture will leave cheeks looking and feeling dehydrated, while too much moisture will render a forehead, nose and chin oily, and prone to breakouts. Tedious trial and error can leave you feeling discouraged – and your wallet light.
And we think that skincare should be fun! So, here, we’ve rounded up a list of the most effective moisturizers for your combination skin type, along with their powerhouse ingredients. Strike a balancing act that will leave your complexion feeling hydrated and looking matte – all day long.
Oil-Management: Green Tea and Burdock Root
When applied topically, green tea can help to calm inflammation. But did you know that it can also help to curb the production of sebum? Boscia Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer combines powerful Japanese Green Tea with Burdock Root, an ingredient that’s been proven to absorb excess oil and prevent shine. Quench thirsty skin, plus achieve a smooth, matte finish.
Prone to Dehydration: Prebiotics
If your combination skin is prone to dehydration, reach for La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer. Touting a non-comedogenic formula that boosts moisture for up-to 48-hours, this balancing cream has a unique ingredient: Pre-biotic thermal water. The standout ingredient creates a healthy environment for good bacteria to flourish, making breakouts less likely to occur.
Ease the Signs of Aging: Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C Ester
Achieve balance, UV-protection, and a boost in radiance, while helping to turn back the hands of time. Perricone MD Photo Plasma contains line smoothing Alpha Lipoic Acid, plus skin-brightening Vitamin C Ester, which work synergistically to make this weightless moisturizer actively effective.
Though finding the right moisturizer for combination skin types can seem overwhelming – with the help of your friends here at Beauty Coach – it doesn’t have to be! By using ingredients that best suit your unique complexion, you can achieve balance, plus a gorgeous, luminous complexion that you can feel great about! Warm weather season (and bare-naked skin): Here we come.
