Facials for Oily & Combination Skin at Bishop’s Stortford’s Top Skin Clinic & Spa
While oily or combination skin is more common in youth, this skin type, with its inherent unruliness and tendency to shine in the T-zone can persist throughout life.
While there are few things worse than an outbreak at a bad time, oily skin does hold its elasticity well with advancing years, so there are considerable compensations. Also, nature is something of a medicine chest for oily skin, with hugely effective extracts to instantly balance, calm, soothe, brighten and clarify even the oiliest skin.
At The Skin Clinic at Urban Spa, Bishop’s Stortford, we offer a comprehensive range of professional skincare brands, all targeting your specific skin types.
