True to your dualistic nature, you probably have combination skin. Are your eyelids dry but your forehead oily? Rough elbows but soft and delicate hands? I have some suggestions for you that work for me!
• Drink more water and herbal tea to balance out both extremes. I like to infuse my water with fruit for flavor and the added benefits of fresh lemon, orange, or berries. I sometimes put a mint sprig in it, too. Warm lemon water in the morning or on chilly days, ice water otherwise. Get a BPA-free bottle and carry it with you everywhere so you remember to keep sipping!
• Use a sensitive skin face wash. I prefer a foaming cleanser in warm seasons and cold cream for winter. After, use a toner for combination skin. Follow that with a light, natural face moisturizer. You might even try a face oil - it can actually take away some natural oiliness!
• Exfoliate with a home-made sugar scrub once per week. Simply mix a spoon of fine-grain sugar, a sprinkle of baking soda, and either water if your skin has been oily or yogurt if it's been dry, mix it to make a thin paste, and gently rub it in circular motion to your face and any other skin that needs attention.
You're glowing already!
