I know… It is often difficult to know how to take care of combination skin! After all, it is not easy to know how to control excess fat in the T zone of the face and not dry out the other areas. Therefore, pay attention! Because today I bring you the definitive guide to balance combination skin.
Not having balanced skin often takes more work than normal, right? Although, in truth, each skin type has specific needs and care . That's why it's so important to know what your skin type is ... (If you don't know yours yet, you can find out in our free Skin Test ).
However, combination skin can be even more complicated than the others, since it shares some characteristics of both normal-dry and oily faces . Do you also have the T zone of the face with much more sebum than the cheeks? Welcome to the combination skin club !
Thus, people with combination skin have excess sebum , shine and acne breakouts or blackheads in the T zone of the face ( forehead, nose and chin ), while the rest of the face ( cheeks ) tend to suffer from a significant loss of hydration , since it is usually more delicate and fine .
In this way, combination skin becomes one of the most difficult to care for, since each area needs specific products . Therefore, here is the definitive guide to care for combination skin without drying it out:
Clean your face with a specific cleanser for combination skin: any facial soap can dry out your cheeks more than necessary. For this reason, it is essential to use a mild cleanser that, in addition to removing excess sebum in the T zone of the face, can restore the hydration that has been lost to the rest of the areas . If so far you have not found one that works for combination skin , I recommend using the
Exfoliating Facial Cleanserfrom BOXSR, suitable for all skin types thanks to its high content of oat flour and cocoa butter . (You can still interchange between different facial cleansing methods .)
Do not wash your face with hot water: hot water dries the skin a lot , so it is not advisable for combination skin (or for any other type of skin, no matter how oily you have it). In turn, the steam from hot water can cause your T- zone pores to open up even more, increasing sebum production in it. Therefore, rinse your face with lukewarm water .
Moisturize the face: although many people decide to use a different moisturizer for each area of the face and thus differentiate between oily and dry areas , this habit can become a nuisance (and a waste of money). Therefore, it is best that you use a moisturizer for combination skin . So you should try the
Revitalizing Moisturizerwhich, thanks to its high content of Camellia Sinensis tea leaf extract and chamomile extract , prevents the skin from drying out , while nourishing its microbiota to control excess oil in other areas.
