I Have Combination Skin, and These Are the Products That Are Working For Me
I'm quite the novice when it comes to skin care. Before last year, any talk of serum or hyaluronic acid would send me curling up under a blanket, never to be seen again. I was overwhelmed at the thought of finding the right products or learning the order in which I should apply them.
My routine consisted of washing my face with whatever soap was around, then applying coconut oil. I never had any issue with this regimen until I learned that coconut oil actually clogs your pores. That's when I started looking for a healthier alternative. Luckily, I met a friend whose skin is so radiant, I just had to ask what products she uses. Turns out, she is quite the skin-care connoisseur and also blogs about it.
We sat down to discuss my skin type and explore some products that could work for me. I told her about my combination skin, how it tends to get dry in the winter and slightly oily other times of the year. I didn't have specific conditions like acne or dark spots that I was trying to solve for. I was more looking for simple, easy-to-use products that make good investments. After some digging and a short while experimenting, I found the clean beauty products that work for me. This was last fall, and I've been using them ever since.
