    skin routine

    Caring for combination to oily skin can sometimes be challenging.

    This skin type can be the result of many factors: skin dehydration, hormonal changes, sun exposure, air-conditioned interiors. It is also characterized by some visible signs: larger pores in T-zone (nose, forehead and chin), the skin is smooth but oily to touch. Combination to oily skin overproduces lipids in T-zone and underproduce in other zones.

    Such a skin type requires gentle cleansing without compromising the skin’s protective barrier. Ditch any harsh and sulfate-rich cleanser which basically remove oil from the skin and thus signal the skin to produce more oil.

    In your skincare routine for oily and combination skin look for natural humectants, natural oils rich in linoleic acid and anti-inflammatory ingredients that soothe the skin. Jojoba oil is particularly beneficial since it is not oil - it is a liquid wax which helps to regulate moisture. Antioxidants protect the skin from damaging free radicals while boosting cell repair, stimulate collagen production, and preventing the formation of wrinkles.

    Morning routine

    Cleanse: Moist your face skin with lukewarm water and massage 2-3 pumps of re.start cleansing oil, and immediately it will create a milky emulsion. Rinse your face with lukewarm water (do not use hot water as it can stimulate oil production) and finish by rinsing with cold water for freshness and circulation.  

    : Enjoy 2-3 spritzes of re.breezy mist on your face and neck for a feeling of instant hydration and refreshment.

    : While your skin is still damp and moistened, gently massage 2 drops of re.water serum on your face, neck and décolleté. You can add a drop of re.glow oil serum for extra care if you feel that your skin is lacking lipids in some areas.

    Evening routine

    Let the evening ritual be your moment of calm, self-care and love. Enhance the action of Matinata products with your conscious touch.

    Massage 2-3 pumps of re.start cleansing oil into dry skin. Pay attention to the massage, especially in areas where impurities accumulate (eg chin). Moisten your hands and continue massaging your face to create a milky liquid. Rinse with lukewarm water.  You can intensify the cleansing process if you soak a face towel in warm water, drain it and wipe your face and enjoy cleansed skin. This way you give the skin a very gentle exfoliation.

    : After cleansing, apply 2-3 spritzes of re.breezy mist on your face and neck for a feeling of instant hydration and refreshment.

    : Gently massage 2 drops of re.water serum. How does it feel on your skin? If you feel comfortable, you don't have to add any moisturizer. This way you have provided the skin with humectants, antioxidants that promote the rejuvenation and balance of skin cells. Don't forget the neck and décolleté.

    Let the evening ritual be your moment of calm, self-care and love. Enhance the action of Matinata products with your conscious touch.


    Beyond skin surface

    • Make sure you take enough water
    • Have a well-balanced diet for the benefit of the whole body and skin – essential fatty acids are vital for the production of hormones. Eat foods rich in fiber, probiotics and vitamin A (sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach, kale)
    • Zinc plays a significant role in regulating sebaceous gland activity.
    • Avoid too many inflammation triggers (sugar, trans-fat, ongoing stress, alcohol)
    • Take care of balanced sleep rhythm – there’s a reason why it is called beauty sleep.

    But besides bringing nutrition internally and externally, we believe that your inner harmony and serenity are also reflected in the appearance of the skin. Be gentle with yourself and bring serenity into your life through love and giving, sharing knowledge and overall passion for life.
