What is combination skin?

Combination skin describes a condition when you have oily skin in some areas of your face and dry skin in others. Usually, the skin has clogged pores in the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin) and normal to dry spots on the cheeks. How can combination skin have such a mix of dry and oily parts in such a small area?

The center of the face produces more sebum than necessary for this skin area to help supply the edge of the face. As a result, the T-zone is more prone to oil and blemishes. But if the pores in the T-zone are clogged, sebum cannot flow and the rest of the face dries out as a result of the lack of sebum reaching these dry areas.

Caring for Combination Skin

The key to getting combination skin in check is to remember that you’re dealing with two different skin types.
- HOW TO CARE FOR NORMAL SKIN
1. Preserve Moisture

Start with a gentle but effective water soluble cleanser. Our hydrating face wash is a great foundation for combination skin as it doesn’t irritate or strip the skin while balancing out moisture. It effectively removes impurities, debris, and makeup without leaving skin feeling tight, dry or greasy.

3. Creating balance

Layer on our face oil (name?) to the dry areas to deeply moisturize and hydrate the deep and superficial layers of the skin to gently smooth rough, dry, flaky skin and provide a healthy glow.

2. Hydration, hydration, hydration

After washing, apply the hydrating, soothing and non-irritating algae serum booster to the entire face. It has a healthy amount of skin-replenishing ingredients (and antioxidants?) that can help nourish dry skin and minimize oiliness at the same time.

4. Extra support

Apply our rich hydrating and moisturizing cream in a motion away from the oily spots when the dry areas need more support. You can use this rich cream as part of your nighttime routine, during the day and as often as needed.
