The science part...
This is the most commonly reported skin type and exhibits two skin types on the face. The skin in the T-zone will often be oily, while the cheeks and other portions of the face may be dry and cracking.
Genetics play a large role in determining skin type. It’s likely that you inherited your skin characteristics from your parents and grandparents. There are more sebaceous glands in the T-Zone, which are responsible for creating sebum, the waxy substance that keeps your skin soft and supple. The glands in this area tend to be more active in those with combination skin type, producing excess sebum that can lead to shine and contribute to breakouts. If your mother or father dealt with oily skin in the T-Zone, and battled acne, you're apt to deal with this condition as well.
However, there are environmental factors that come into play. Certain products and lifestyle habits can contribute to combination skin type; using harsh products that contain dry ingredients can trigger your skin to produce excess oil, which can worsen breakouts in the T-Zone while drying out other parts of the face.
Tips for your skin type...
Get Enough Sleep
Getting the right amount of rest each night is important to holistic health, and it also can significantly affect the look and appearance of the skin. Sleep deprivation can result in insulin resistance. Insulin increases can result in the creation of IGF-1, a hormone that stimulates an increase in the production of sebum.
Keep Your Stress in Check
Be sure to manage your stress, as it has been connected to insulin resistance and worsened breakouts in numerous studies. Exercise regularly, and make time for you!
Always Wear Sun Cream
No matter your skin type, it’s important to use daily SPF to keep your skin safe and looking its best. However, with combination skin, it’s important to take a look at the type of sun cream you're using to avoid blocking up those pores. Look for sunscreen gels that are labeled oil-free.
Don’t Forget to Exfoliate
Exfoliation is crucial for all skin types, but those with combination skin can benefit significantly from the right exfoliating products. Exfoliation can help open up and clear out the clogged pores in oily sections of the face, while allowing moisture to penetrate the skin in dry areas. Certain products provide safe chemical exfoliation, or you can use granular scrubs designed to physically scrape off the dead skin cells that can build up in your pores. If your skin is sensitive, be careful not to over-exfoliate.
This cream , along with the cleansing dew and exfoliating cleaner is excellent. It is light. easily absorbed and effective. Worth every penny
Amazing. I love this product and only use this to wash my face!
Love the 3 slopes. Fits so comfortably in your hand as it works magic back into my skin.
Recently I have been converted to this skincare range. It is absolutely beautiful to use and gives amazing results. My skin which is temperamental to say the least looks fantastic. Used with a gua sha tool this cleanser removes makeup and tones the skin. The whole range just works!
Lovely product , so moisturising, will keep ordering this product
I love the feel of cleaning my skin with the cleansing dew. I use as my first clean and my morning clean.
A lovely set, seems to suit my skin sensitive skin.
Would love to try the eye cream next.
Would be good to try a similar set with an eye cream in.
I have only been using my 001 products for a week as I was finishing off some other skincare I had. I am absolutely loving everything I ordered and my skin is feeling really nice. Thankyou so much!
The product are very nice. But very expensive which I can’t buy as l want too
I have tried everything on the market and this range is by far the best range I have used. It’s feels like self love every time u apply it ❤️
The redness and inflammation on my neck area diminished tremendously! Absolutely beautiful products and will re-order!
Definitely this product should not run out. I'm 50 and I've tried a lot of skin care products, but recently got acquainted with the products of Ada Ooi, I discarded everything. I just mist generously throughout the day (of course on a clean face and with serums) and enjoy. Everything is fine in it, and the smell is indescribable.
I love the smell and the luxury of it. I discovered it in lockdown and if it runs out there’s nothing else o prefer.
This actually feels like it cleans my skin but with a wonderful lightness
I use my Alpha glow serum with the micro Alpha glow system which delivers the serum deep in skin and non gets wasted it was a top up serum as I was running low the discount ir sale make it easy to buy more products it leaves skin soft and hydrated
