Do you experience dryness as well as excess oil on your face? If yes, you have a combination skin type. Sometimes, it can get tricky to figure out what skincare products our skin needs. All you can do is help your skin find the perfect balance by following a proper skincare regime for combination skin. Combination skin has both oily and dry skin which means you might get baffled by what type of skincare products to choose. As tricky as it sounds, you don’t want to use two different skincare routines, but instead find one in the middle road. First, let’s understand what combination skin type is.
What Is Combination Skin?
Combination skin is like two sides of a coin—dry sand meeting the sea’s lapping waves. Time to learn some tips and skincare routine for combination skin. Ahead, we share tips on how to care for combination skin, as well as the must-have products to give your skin the balance it needs.
Ways To Know If You Have Combination Skin
The oil you spot on your forehead, chin and nose makes you believe that you have an oily skin type, but watch out. Because that’s possible only if you have oil on the rest of your face too. Meanwhile, let’s take you through what are the ways to know if you have combination skin.
1. Oily T-zone
If your T-zone i.e. forehead, nose and chin is oily and shiny while your cheeks are dry, it’s a sign that you have combination skin.
2. No product suits your skin type
The products that cater to oily skin work beautifully on certain parts i.e. T-zone while drying out the other parts of your face especially cheeks. Similarly, products for dry skin make some parts of your skin feel oily. Hence, you either end up using products for both the skin types or none.
3. Blackheads on nose, always
You witness open pores on your nose usually that leads to blackheads and whiteheads. Open pores are sensitive to the impurities, dirt and pollution. Grime and oil build-up gets deposited in these that leads to the formation of these blackheads.
How To Take Care Of Your Combination Skin
Make sure that you are providing the utmost attention to your skin while striking the right balance. Choosing the right ingredient and skincare products helps to give your skin the right balance and healthy skin.
1. Beware of colder days
Like all skin types, combination skin is also affected by the weather changes during colder months. The swing from one extreme temperature to another can make your skin dry. Aim to rebalance your skin’s moisture levels using a moisturizer that has a lightweight formula and easily blends into your skin.
2. Choose the right kind of skincare products
Our skin needs consistency, with the right kind of products that consist of both desert and mountain benefits that will keep your skin looking healthy. Invest in products that soothe your dry areas without kicking off the sebum production. And at Quench, our formulas are infused with naturally derived ingredients that will give your skin just what it needs.
