The Basics: Combination skin type

What's combination skin?

This is one of the most common skin types as it can come in many different variations. It features two skin types. One of the most common variations is an oily t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) and dry cheeks. This often happens because pores tend to be larger in the t-zone areas, and smaller on the rest of the face. But keep in mind that all sorts of combinations can occur.

How to recognize combination skin type?

You can recognize this skin type mainly by looking at the size of the pores and the way your skin produces sebum in these different areas. Check out the blogs on oily skin and dry skin if you suspect you might be dealing with combination skin.

Keep this in mind when taking care of your skin

Combination skin types often can combine products for dry and oily skin in a routine. Meaning a moisturizing cleanser suitable for dry skin and a lightweight moisturizer created for oily skin might work well for you. Make sure you have a basic routine down before implementing products targeting your skin condition.
