Frequently Asked Questions
What is Combination skin?
Combination skin is defined as having oily skin in some regions and dry skin in others of your face. On most people’s faces, there’s a mix of oily and dry areas, with the t-zone or the forehead, nose, and chin, being somewhat too highly oily.
What is normal to combine skin?
The area around your forehead, nose, and chin of combination skin is normally oily, but the rest of your face is dry. It can also be oily and dry in separate areas, but if you have combination skin, you will detect two or more different textures on your face.
What is a good skin care routine for combination skin?
A combination skin often necessitates balancing the oily portion with the dry part of your skin. If you have combination skin, your doctor will likely recommend specialised treatment to combat possible acne breakout on your T-zone while keeping your dry skin moisturized.
What should I do if I have combination skin?
When deciding on a skin care program for combination skin, it’s a good idea to be cautious. Choose moderate products that will hydrate dry areas without adding to the oiliness. And just address the areas that are affected by the problem.
What combination of skin should I avoid?
It’s a mistake to skip moisturizer in your skin care routine, whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin. While you’re probably aware that the sections of your skin that appear dry are in dire need of moisturizer, you’re probably also aware that the areas that appear oily are in severe need of moisturizer. Skipping the moisturizer can actually make your skin look even oilier.
How to treat combination skin?
