Combination skin

Is my skin dry or oily? Or both!

Dry…oily. Which is it? If your skin can’t make up its mind on which direction it’s going, then Indulge can help—with products to help reduce the oil production where needed and hydrate the dry and normal areas. It’s that simple.

It’s really about balance. To re-balance the skin, you need a product that absorbs excess sebum (oil), purifies and tightens the pores, and gives you a better base for makeup. Keep this mind, though: if you do not cleanse and purify your skin, the bacteria and blackheads will build up to the point that the pores will stretch and stretch. Unfortunately, they don’t go back to their original size. Makeup can clog those larger pores, which can be embarrassing when they are that large. Guinot products can reduce the size, but not eliminate the stretched pores. So prevention is the key. We recommend the following Guinot treatments:

Hydradermie to firm and contour the face

Beaute Neuve renews the skin and removes dead skin build-up with a double peel

Aromatic to relax and nourish the skin—and the soul—and to rebalance skin tone

Recommended products for at home:

  • Hydra Tendre Soft Wash-Off Cleansing Cream brings you the advantages of soap without its drying effects.
  • Gommage Grain D’Eclat is a gently cleansing exfoliator. Or you may use Gommage Biologique Biological Peeling Radiance Gel with fruit acids. Use 1-2x per week for visible results.
  • Gommasque is an exfoliating and absorbing mask for oily skin. Use all over for combination skin or in the oily portions of your face like the nose and surrounding areas. This mask regulates oil, has anti-bacterial properties, and purifies the skin. If the skin is really oily, use this mask only once per week. Otherwise, you will start producing more oil. Leave on 10-15 min. for best results.
  • Microbiotic Mousse will deeply cleanse the skin with anti-bacterial properties that kill bacteria. Use daily morning/evening.
  • Microbiotic Lotion tones and regulates oily skin. This pH balanced product contains anti-bacterial properties and completes the cleansing of the skin. Use morning and evening.
  • Crème Pur Equilibre Pure Balance Cream is shine-free and best used for combination skin prone to oiliness. Also evens skin tone.
  • Correcteur Traitant is a tinted concealer that hides blemishes and imperfections, giving your skin a smoother, more attractive look.

Recommend 4 treatments 1 per week for the first two months, and then once per month to maintain your results.
