Best Skin Care Regimens & Routine
Normal to Combination Skin
Best skin care regimens for normal to combination skin. What is normal and combination skin? Your skin is in balance or “normal” if once in a while you get a pimple here and there and have no noticeable oils or dry spots. If you have a couple of oily or dry spots on your skin and/or a couple to a few pimples here and there then you have combination skin. People with normal or combination skin don’t need to do much to keep their skin looking smooth and supple. But you are never too young to start caring for your skin. In fact, the sooner you start with the best skin care regimens the better. With the right regimen, you begin to protect your skin from sun damage and other elements that can cause early signs of ageing. This post best skin care regimens for normal to combination skin is can be started at age 20. If you are younger click here to get the proper regimen.
If your skin sometimes gets oily spots, it could be caused by certain foods that you are eating. Too many nuts, chocolate, beef jerky, fatty red meats even milk or cheese can make your skin greasy. The same goes for dry skin, if you notice your skin getting dry it can be due to not eating enough foods with good oils. Dry skin can also be caused by weather change.
**Water has to do a lot with the balance of your skin. If you are not drinking enough water then your body can’t get rid of excess oils making your skin greasy and if your skin is dry then you might be dehydrated causing your skin to feel and look dry. Drink at least 64 ounces of WATER (about four water bottles) daily. You will notice a difference in your skin within a few days.
What To Do
Oily skin: If you have to eat nuts eat small quantities of nuts like 1/4 cup of nuts a week. If Chocolate is your weakness try switching to dark chocolate and eat about 1/4 cup a week. For beef jerky stay away from Slim Jims or other greasy jerky and eat jerky that is not greasy. Eat lean red meat and stay away from deli meats that have white spots such as pepperoni or salami. For milk, opt to drink skim milk and for the cheese stay away from yellow cheese, eat white cheese (swiss or mozzarella) but in small quantities.
Dry skin: Eat more good fatty foods, such as salmon, avocados, cook with olive oil you can even drink a teaspoon of olive oil one to two times a week. Now if your skin gets dry only when the weather changes then a moisture boosting serum will do the job. See below for my recommended skin care products.

- Every morning wash your face with warm water. Use the following: if your skin has some oily spots use Anew Clean Illuminating Rich Cleansing Foam. This foaming cleanser effectively cleanses the skin of makeup, dirt, oil and impurities. It balances your skin by removing oils without stripping its moisture. If your skin has some dry spots Anew Clean Comforting Cream Cleanser is the one for you. The cream cleanser restores moisture so dry skin feels nourished and looks smoother. Now if you have no oily or dry spots Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser is one I would recommend. It keeps your skin looking healthy and is suitable for all skin types.
- Pat your face dry and wipe your face with a toner using a cotton ball or a face pad. I recommend Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera. A toner will shrink pores, moisturize your skin and quickly restores your skin’s natural pH balance meaning your skin doesn’t have to work so hard to restore itself. Give the toner a few seconds to dry (do not rinse off).
- Now apply the proper day moisturizer. The following are great moisturizers. *Avon Nutraeffects Ageless Day Cream SPF 20 – Powered By chia seed which is known to hold 12x its weight in moisture, helps skin feel deeply replenished and helps support the natural production of collagen. Anew Vital Day Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 25, and Anew Vital Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 25 both helps revive the look and feel of tired skin, keeps skin looking vibrant, reducing dullness and improving clarity. I would recommend the lotion formula if you have oily spots and the cream formula if you have dry spots. If you have no oily or dry spots I would recommend the *Nutraeffects Ageless or the Anew Vital lotion.
- Next is an eye cream, you want to use an eye cream that’s specially formulated for under the eyes if you use the face cream it might burn. I recommend *Avon Nutraeffects Ageless Eye Cream it’s mild, it keeps plumpness and helps support natural production of collagen. It also helps your eyes look rested.
- Lastly, a lip balm or a lip conditioner to keep your lips nourished, protected from the sun and looking soft.

- Every night wash your face with warm water and with the facial cleanser.
- Pat your face dry and apply the toner.
- Apply a treatment that best suits your needs (see below). Let the treatment soak into your skin before you apply your night moisturizer (do not rinse off the treatment).
- Now apply the proper night moisturizer (pick the one that best fits your skin type). If you are using the Avon Nutraeffects line I recommend staying with the same line. Dry spots use *Avon Nutraeffects Hydration Night Gel, it keeps your skin hydrated during the night so your skin looks refreshed and supple in the morning. Oily patches *Avon Nutraeffects Balance Night Gel Cream, its water-light gel cream keeps your skin’s oils in balance while you sleep. It also helps your skin look balanced all day. Normal (in balance) I recommend *Avon Nutraeffects Ageless Night Cream it deeply replenishes to help smooth and firm skin while you sleep. If you are using the Anew line Anew Vitale Night Cream would be the one to use. This hydrating gel cream helps energize your skin making your skin look radiant in the morning and it also helps reduce the appearance of large pores and fine lines.
- Next is the eye cream.
- Don’t forget your neck, just like the skin on your face, if you don’t properly care for the skin on your neck it will begging to show signs of premature ageing. Start to care for it now with Skin So Soft Firm & Restore Neck & Chest Treatment Cream. It protects your skin from sun damage and helps your skin stay moisturized, firm and look more radiant. Don’t let your neck give away your age 😉
- Moisturize your lips with a lip balm or a lip conditioner.
You are now ready for bed.
