Combination Skin

Combination skin is a mixture of two skin types - dry skin and oily skin.

How Can You Identify Combination Skin?

    • Oily T-zone and dry cheeks
    • Breakouts only on forehead, chin and nose
    • Sensitive cheeks

What Causes Combination Skin?

1. Genetics

If any of your parents and other family members have combination skin, you may have it too.

2. Products

Sometimes, harsh products can cause a change in skin type and contribute to excess sebum production in the T-zone.

3. Climate

You may see a change in your skin type depending on the change in the climate. For example, summers may make your skin oily. Your skin may feel dry during the winter months.

Tips For Combination Skin

1. Use Cleansers

If you have combination skin, the pores in your T-zone are larger than the rest of your face. Harsh products may clog your pores. Using a gentle cleanser is recommended.

2. Exfoliate Gently And Once in A While

Exfoliating every day isn’t recommended for any skin type. It can remove necessary oils from your skin. When you exfoliate, don’t scrub your T-zone too much. Scrubbing too hard can damage your skin.

3. Wear Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a must-have skincare product. Choose an oil-free sunscreen if you have combination skin.

4. Maintain Two Separate Skin Care Routines

Products that work for dry skin may be harsh on oily skin. Follow a separate skincare regimen for your T-zone. Don’t use the same products for your T-zone and the rest of your face.

5. Buy Oil-Free Products

Whether it's sunscreen or makeup, buy oil-free products to avoid clogged pores.
