Find Your Perfect Skin Care Routine for Combination Skin

Do you have combination skin? That’s the worst! I know how tough it is to find a skincare routine that works for all areas of your face, but don’t worry because I’m here with some helpful tips.

We often hear about skincare routines for dry or oily skin, but what’s the best routine for those of us with combination skin? Here are some tips on how to take care of your face and keep it balanced. First, you’ll want to cleanse twice a day with a gentle cleanser. This must be an oil-free product so that your pores don’t get clogged up. Next, moisturize! Moisturizing will allow the oils in your skincare products to hydrate without causing any excess oils or shine on your face. Finally, make sure you use sunscreen every day and limit sun exposure by wearing protective clothing and staying in shaded areas when possible.

What is good for combination skin?

Combination skin is a tricky thing to deal with because it requires balancing two different types of skincare products to get the best outcome for your face. But we’ve got some good news. There are plenty of products out there that can help you combat your combo-skin woes and make life easier on both parts of your complexion. So let’s dive in and find out more about what works and what doesn’t work so well when it comes to finding the right product for you.

It’s essential to take care of your skin. Unfortunately, many people say that they don’t have time in the morning and at night for a full routine, but here are some tips on making this happen.

  1. Make sure you’re washing your face with soap or cleanser every day (make sure not to use too much water, so it doesn’t dry out skin).
  2. Use moisturizer after cleansing in the morning and evening. Moisturizer is especially important if you have dry patches; it will help them disappear and keep your whole face feeling hydrated. If possible, try using an oil-free moisturizer during the day because oils can cause acne breakouts later on in life.

Your skin type is demanding and diverse. It can be sensitive, oily, or dry- all at the same time! If you have combination skin like this, it’s important to take a multi-faceted approach to your skincare routine. Your morning routine should start with cleansing your face with an oil-free cleanser followed by a moisturizing toner for normal/dry skin types and then follow up with a cream or lotion if you have normal/oily skin. In the evening, cleanse again and apply exfoliating masks twice weekly before applying serum and moisturizer.  Your night routine should also include eye cream applied around your eyes before bedtime.

Signs you have combination skin

skin typesIf you have combination skin, you’re not alone. The word “combination” is usually used to describe someone with two different skin types. One type can be oily, while the other may be dry or sensitive. Many factors contribute to your skin’s condition, including genetics, age, and hormones.

Some causes of having this type of complexion are hormones, genetics, stress levels, sun exposure, and allergies. If you think you may have combination skin, then look out for these five telltale signs:

  • Oily T-Zone – Skin gets shiny around forehead, nose & cheeks;
  • Dryness – Skin feels tight or flaky near the mouth area or along the jawline.
