Firstly, let's explain what combination skin is. It's described as having a combination of oily and dry skin. For instance, you may have certain areas of your face dry, while others produce excess oils. Most commonly oily areas include the nose, forehead and chin. There are a number of factors which cause combination skin. Some of these include high-stress levels, poor exercise and diet, genetics, sun weakening the skin or just by simply using the wrong products. Combination skin care products help to minimise oils where needed but add moisture to other areas.
How To Know If You Have Combination Skin
There are four main skin types out there. One is oily, where you have lots of shine over your face, in particular the forehead and nose. Dry skin is where your skin feels tight, sometimes flaky and often is very visible when wearing certain makeups. Normal skin is where you don't suffer from any abnormalities and your skin does not produce excess oils or require heavy moisturising products. Finally, combination skin will leave shine often in the T-zone. You may feel dry only in specific areas, where others have excess oil.
Best Combination Skin Care Products
Picking the best combination skin care products can be rather difficult. Everyone's skin is so different, therefore the needs are too. For combination skin, we'd recommend using cream cleaners and cream consistency products. They are able to provide moisture to the skin, without the excess shine. It targets areas that need a little more love than others. Should you have any questions, contact us directly and we'll do our best the answer them as in-depth as possible.
