Combination skin is the mullet of skincare—it’s two opposing things, and neither are all that great. Your T-zone is usually the oily area, and the circumference of your face and cheeks are usually drier. Pay attention to how your skin feels as the seasons change—it might improve or worsen depending on the conditions.
01. Balanced Cleanse
People with combination skin often experience dryness on the cheeks, making it important to find a moisturizer that is not too heavy but one substantial enough to retain moisture where needed most.
Use either a gel or foam cleanser—it’s up to you.
02. Mix it Up
With combination skin, you might notice your skin feels tight (or in some cases still oily) after cleansing. That’s where toner comes in – it helps to balance skin’s pH levels, wick away any traces of oil, and add hydration.
03. Mellow Moisturizer
When it comes to hydrating combination skin, the key is balance. Hydrating but not heavy, it’s easy to see why our non-greasy and nourishing White Tea & Shea Moisturizer is a perfect pick. Its lightweight, non-clogging texture is ideal for those looking for fast hydration without the shiny finish, and it makes it a great base for makeup.
01. Keep it Simple
Cleanse with your morning cleanser. Unlike other skin types, combination skin can get away with using the same exact routine day and night! That's because it's less important that you focus on treating, and much more important that you pay attention to which areas need more or less attention.
02. Tone it Down
After cleansing, gently sweep toner all over face and neck with a cotton pad. You're going to want an alcohol-free, skin-balancing toner to help banish residue, combat breakouts, and regulate an oily T-zone. Sound like a lot to ask for right? Wrong! Aloe + Witch hazel is an antioxidant powerhouse that will remove excess oil and lift trapped makeup residue from your pores WITHOUT dehydrating your skin.
