Combination skin is, as the words suggest, 'mixed' in terms of type. The skin is partly oily and partly dry. Often the dry patches are on the cheeks. The oily spots are often found on the T-zone: the forehead, nose and chin. Fortunately, there are natural products that can bring combination skin back into balance.
How to recognize combination skin?
You can recognize a combination skin by the different skin types in the face. You suffer from both dry spots and shiny skin. You have enlarged pores, pimples, blackheads, but also dry (scaly) skin on parts of your face. The so-called T-zone: the forehead, nose and chin are the only parts of the face that are always oily.
What causes combination skin?
Combination skin can be hereditary. You were born with the two different skin types. On the one hand your facial skin produces too much sebum and on the other hand too little.
In addition to these factors that you have little influence on, there are also factors that you do have influence on. For example, stress and weather conditions also play a role in the condition of the skin.
And the use of skin care products can also affect the condition of the skin. This can happen more quickly with combination skin. Because the product that works well for one part of the skin, does not work at all for the other part of the same facial skin.
By knowing well that you are dealing with combination skin and by using the right products, you can calm and balance the entire facial skin.
How to care for combination skin?
Combination skin is best cared for by using mild products. This way you can give the right care to the too oily and too dry parts of the face at the same time. In terms of oils, a semi-drying oil works very well for people with combination facial skin. These types of oils work well for the dry and oily areas of the face. Do you notice that certain parts of your face need some extra nutrition? Then you can safely provide additional oil or butter in the places that need it. This way you can adapt the care to the changing needs of your skin.
Jojoba oil is a great oil to use if you have combination skin. The oil works well for different skin types. Because it regulates sebum, you can use the oil for both the drier and the oilier parts of your skin. If the oil does not have sufficient effect on your dry spots, you can add extra castor oil a>, avocado oil or smeat on argan oil. If you prefer to apply butter to very dry areas, you can opt for shea< /a>- or mangobutter
