All month long, we’ve been taking a look at how to eat right for your skin type. Although we believe strongly in our products, we also know that health is holistic, and that even skin needs to be taken care of with a healthy diet.
We’ve touched on the main skin types already (dry skin, sensitive skin, and oily/acne-prone skin) but what if you have combination skin? Combination skin is any skin type which has two (or more!) areas of differing skin types. You can be normal on your cheeks, but oily on your T-zone; dry on your chin and nose, but acne-prone elsewhere.
Combination skin is tricky because you don’t want to overload one skin type while nourishing another. What it comes down to is — drum roll please — eating a healthy, well-balanced diet! Shocking, I know.
But in all seriousness, combination skin types should be supported by diet. Eating foods high in healthy fats like avocado and nuts will support healthy hydration, while eating phytonutrients found in produce will encourage healthy skin function.
The real trick to keeping combination skin healthy and happy? Moisture. Believe it or not, all skin types need hydration to function, whether it’s the obvious choice of dry skin all the way down to oily skin. Dehydrated skin (different from dry skin) is suffering skin, so keeping your face moisturized every day is the key to success.
Our patented MLE formulas are superb for all skin types, including fussy sensitive skin and even skin with conditions like eczema and rosacea. MLE is an advanced ingredient that’s able to mimic the lipid layer of healthy skin. What does this mean for you? Your face cream tricks your skin into feeling and acting like healthy skin.
After a couple weeks of regular use, your skin will act healthy all on its own, with reinforcement from our formulas. They encourage hydration, protect against external damage, and allow your skin to get back to taking care of skin issues like patches of dryness, acne blemishes, and oily T-zone — you know, combination skin type issues.
We don’t mean to insinuate that our MLE products are a save-all. They should still be combined with healthy diet and beauty habits like using clean makeup brushes and cleansing skin at night. But for the rest of it? MLE is like nothing you’ve used before.
