Combination Skin is not a skin type…it’s a symptom with an easy permanent fix. “Combination skin” is skin that is oily, congested, dry, and gets isolated “random” breakouts. Combination skin is skin that has all of the problems in all the different areas of our skin. This skin is “patchy”and often has irregular skin tone. It is as if this type of skin is divided into neighboring countries with very different policies. Each “country” is coping with imbalances in its own way. Extra oily in one zone, dry and even flaking in others, red in some spots and not at all in others. One of the most commonly talked about symptoms of combination skin is the discussion of our T-Zones. Learn all about our T-Zone and this interesting and very special part of our skin that happens to be in a T shape…forehead, nose, and chin. Understanding the intellgent purpose of our T-Zone will help us to stop pathologizing natural skin function. Knowing how to achieve skin that has gorgeously balanced natural skin function that is free of all the chaos of combination skin symptoms has alot to do with unlearning what we thought we knew about skin.

The Following Universal Topical Elements Can Harmonize and Unify This Chaos:

  • Hydration. Our skin loves water. My favorite hydrophilic (water loving) substances are hyaluronic and pure aloe vera gel.
  • Dermal Nutrients. This is relatively new and worth learning the benefits of Dermal Nutrients for your skin. We can now feed our hungry dermal layer and provide the means to acqure fresh skin cells that can hold water as “older” skin cells just can’t retain water no matter what we do. It is part of the natural sloughing process of our skin and now we can speed this up holistically without chemical peels and scrubbing.
  • Barrier Restoration. This is a fancy way to say that one embraces a lipid rich moisturizer. There are a lot of old misunderstandings when it comes to how to properly moisturize our skin. There is new information about this topic and you might be suprised to discover what makes a good moisturizer.

These gifts allow our skin to naturally release old congestion and restore proper texture and functions, easing everything back into one cohesive world. This process is beautiful to witness and experience!
