S. asked me a question:

Hello Anna!
My skin is problem and combination.  Could you tell me how to care for it? What products should I use?
Thanks in advance!

Hello S.! I am glad that you asked me that question. A lot of people struggle with the same problem as you. Namely, problem and combination skin is very common and many of you have to deal with it. My skin type is also combination and acne-prone. My pores are clogged very easily. So I have some experience to share with you. Of course, this article is too short to cover all the details, thats why I decided to start a series of posts “Makeup and skincare basics”! Yay! There you will be able to find answers to all your questions. How to care for different types of skin, different types of products in the market, which suits what skin types the best.

So I will not go in too many detail right now, I will summarize the essential points instead:

  • First, do not forget to wash your face twice a day, morning and evening. This will help your skin to refresh itself and will prevent pores to clog.
  • Second, do not use a towel, use disposable paper towels instead to prevent bacteria to spread and cause breakouts on your face.
  • A very common misunderstanding about oily and combination skin is that people think they need to use aggressive products. It is wrong! Problem skin can look greasy because its was overdried and dehydrated. So, do not forget to moisturize it. Use a gentle face wash in the morning. In the evening, you can use something more agressive.
  • Make sure you do a cleansing mask at least once a week to keep your pores clean.

Here’s a mini-list of the most important factors, I hope this information was helpful. Many articles and videos covering this topic will follow!
