Combination Skin Care

This type of skin is very common. As the name suggests, it is a combination of both oily and dry skin with certain areas of the face oily and the rest dry. The forehead, nose and chin i.e. the T-zone, may be greasy and the rest dry. It requires separate treatment for each area. Both the dry and greasy areas need moisturizing.

Remember that oil is not moisture, and regular cleansing , toning and moisturizing has to be done with the area being dealt in mind. Clean and tone up the oily patch and moisturize the dry patch with extra care.

Combination Skin Care Tips

  • Use a mild cleanser on your entire face up to twice a day.
  • Use a good moisturizer on the dry areas. - Moisturizers work by either increasing the penetration of water into the skin or by reducing the rate at which water is evaporating from the skin surface.
  • Look for products that normalize your skin, such as those that contain alpha hydroxy acids - Alpha hydroxy acids are derived from fruit, milk and sugar cane and have anti­inflammatory properties. When applied to the skin they help remove dead skin cells (exfoliate), giving a younger appearance.
  • Use oil-absorbing makeup on oily areas to control shine.
  • Use a sunscreen, minimum SPF.

Homemade Face Masks for Combinational Skin

  • Apply a paste of barley meal, pea flower and rose water. Leave it for several hours on the skin. Later wash the face with tepid water. It will make the skin soft and supple.
