Combination skin takes its name from the fact that it is a combination of two skin types:
- Unproblematic skin: Often this is referred to as “normal” skin which is a term widely used to refer to well-balanced (not too oily and not too dry) skin combined with
- Oily, shiny skin, often in combination with enlarged pores & small blemishes
Combination skin shines and tends to develop small blemishes – especially in the so-called T-zone between the forehead, nose and chin. By contrast, the cheek area is well-balanced or sometimes even tends towards dry skin. Choose a face care product that is specifically tailored to your skin type, in order to promote the restoration of the skin’s own moisture balance while reducing shine.
This is what combination skin is like:
- oily shine
- tends to develop impurities in the T-zone
- the cheek area is more dry
