Oily Skin
Do not treat it with inappropriate, offensive products, because they lead to dehydration and cause peeling. It is best to clean the face with gels or foams for cleaning with fruit acids. Do not use ordinary creams, instead use gels or fluids, which will hydrate your skin.

Mixed Skin
If your skin is oily on the forehead, nose and chin, and normal or dry on the cheeks, choose a cream that intensely hydrate.

Mature SkinMoisturizing cream should contain ingredients to combat wrinkles and firming the skin, such as retinol, peptides and vegetable oils and extracts that strengthen the skin.

Once a Week

Masks

For faster recovery of tense, tight, dehydrated skin, best face masks are with concentrated ingredients for hydration. They should contain plant extracts and oils that help the skin renewal. Also, they keep the hydro-lipid film composed of water and oils, which covers the surface of the skin and protects it from drying out.

Place masks once or twice a week, and before applying, do non-abrasive enzyme peeling which you can buy in pharmacies.
