Mature Skin- skincare tips

Ageing is natural.

Blog six in my skincare tips series covers MATURE SKIN.  In this blog post I am covering ageing skin types.     Ageing is a natural process that is inevitable and happens to us all.  We cannot stop it or avoid it but we can learn    to embrace the process.

COMBINATION SKIN

SKIN CARE TIPS – Getting Started, know your skin type.

I bring you Blog Two in this skincare series and this covers skincare tips for COMBINATION SKIN.  To put it simply, this skin type is a mixture of oily and normal or drier areas on the face.  Generally, the T-Zone tends to be oily and the cheeks are dry.  When you have combination skin, you tend to be in constant battle with your T-Zone.  You may find especially it hard to keep makeup from sliding off your face in those areas.
