Cream for combination skin
Every girl dreams of a perfectly even tone. But unfortunately, only a few can boast of a normal type of epidermis. And even owners of perfect skin face the problem of peeling or oily sheen. What can we say about the young ladies whom Mother Nature awarded with a combined dermis.

Therefore, the choice of foundation for combination skin must be approached with extreme care. It is not recommended to use cosmetic products for the dry type of epidermis, as they will further enhance the work of the sebaceous glands. The drug for a fatty dermis is also not suitable, since it will lead to peeling on over-dried areas of the face.
