There is only one thing worse than skin that is either too oily or too dry, and that’s when it’s both. Known as ‘combination skin’ it is one of the five most common skin types for women, with a third of trilogy customers identifying themselves as someone searching for a solution. That’s where our new ingredient called Hemphip™ (a botanical bend of star ingredients hemp and rosehip), complete with a four step product range, comes in to alleviate all your combination skincare issues.
Like its name suggests, combination skin is just that – a combination. Simply put, it means some areas of your skin (typically around the T-zone – think forehead, nose and chin) are oily, while other areas, such as your cheeks have dry patches. Unlike other skin ailments, combination skin affects a wide range of ages – from youthful to maturing skin. And for some, it is something they deal with for their entire lives. It can be a frustrating process trying to work out how to hydrate your face, at the same time as fighting excess oil and reducing shine. But there is a solution! Using products that not only help to balance and equalise the skin’s water and oil content but also hydrate will get your skin into a manageable state. And over many months of research Trilogy have come up with just the thing…
The Trilogy Balancing Range
It’s not just the botanical blend of Hemphip™ that Trilogy have created. In a bid to cater to women with combination skin, they’ve developed an entire range of products. This new range consists of a four step balancing routine all working to equalise oiliness and dryness. The lightweight solutions are designed to help soften and soothe dry skin barriers, while also reducing excess oil output in more oil prone areas such as the T-Zone. All products are fragrance free, cruelty free, paraben free and vegan friendly. Added to that, they’re made in New Zealand. Let’s take a closer look at each of them…
