You may have heard of multi-masking, which involves applying different face masks to different zones of your face depending on whether that area is dry or oily. So an oil absorbing mask, such as a clay mask, would be applied to oilier areas of the face, usually, the T-zone, whereas a more hydrating mask would be applied to drier areas of the face.
Multi-masking instantly became a trend, as results were clearly visible and combination skinned gals and guys didn't have to skip the mask just because their skin was both oily and dry.
This got us thinking... If multi-masking works so well, then what about multi-moisturizing? As human beings, we are all unique and this fact applies when it comes to our skin. Some of us are oily, some dry and many are, in fact, a little bit of both.
Sure, there are creams out there targeted at combination skin, but how can one product really target two skin concerns at once? You're probably nodding your head and agreeing with us right now! Combination creams can often leave your skin feeling a little dry, which is the last thing you want during the cooler months!
Here at TruSelf, we decided to try multi-moisturizing using our oil-based moisturizer on our drier areas, such as the cheeks, neck, and chin and our oil-free moisturizer on areas that tend to get a bit greasy, namely the forehead and nose, and oh boy did we love the results!
Let’s learn about what each moisturizer can do for your skin:
Ocean Mineral Moisturizer
Ideal for pesky dry skin, especially during winter, our Ocean Mineral Moisturizer includes beautiful hydrating ingredients including soothing aloe vera, deeply nourishing shea butter, and jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is one of our favorite oils because it mimics the skin's natural sebum. This means that it simply melts into the skin leaving it silky soft and hydrated, but without that heavy greasy feeling many other hydrating moisturizers tend to leave behind. Of course, our moisturizer wouldn't be complete without antioxidant rich green tea, as well as a unique Ocean Mineral Complex, providing the skin with powerful minerals that, when used topically, treat, detoxify and deeply cleanse our skin.
Use this regularly on dry skin and you will notice a plumper, more hydrated and youthful complexion.
Herbal Infused Moisturizer
We are very proud of our newest (moisturizer) addition to the TruSelf family, and we can honestly say the results are fab! This moisturizer is oil-free and targeted towards skin on the oily side.
Our Herbal Infused Moisturizer is rich in antioxidants including green tea, spirulina, and vitamin c to fight inflammation and promote a glowing and clear complexion, but we've kept aloe vera in there to provide just enough soothing hydration without a greasy feel.
Apply this “superfood in a jar” to banish blemishes and absorb/prevent excess oil for a mattifying effect. For this reason, it's ideal as a primer under your foundation to prevent grease throughout the day.
Now that you know the benefits of these two lovely products, why not use them both for incredible results? Of course, if your skin is only dry stick to the Ocean Mineral Moisturizer, and if you suffer from oily skin and tend to get blemishes all over, don't stray from our Herbal Infused formula.
When your skin can't decide whether it's oily or dry, outsmart it and try multi-moisturizing for yourself! Please don't hesitate to share your gorgeous results with us!
