Control your combination skin

Firstly, is your skin type ‘combination’?

If your forehead, nose or chin are generally oilier and your cheeks tend to be dry then you have combination skin, people will describe this as an oily t-zone. If you are not concerned with acne, he says to avoid using products specifically designed for treating spots as they may be over-drying for combination skin. You want to regulate your oil production while rehydrating your cheeks, which can be difficult.
1. Keep your products cool

Put your products in the fridge. By keeping the contents cool, it will help reduce inflammation and redness when applied to the skin and ensure more balanced oil production throughout the day.

2. Use different cleansers at different times
Combination skin needs a different type of cleansing at different times of the day. Perhaps morning cleanse with a foaming cleanser to remove oil and switch to a cream based cleanser at night to replenish moisture.
3. Choose your toner wisely
Toning is often a forgotten step in a skincare regime but is really important. Seek out toners that are high in anti-oxidants and are positioned as anti-inflammatory versus toners high in alcohol that can further dry your complexion.
4. Treat the oily T-zone and dry cheeks separately
Different areas of the skin need to be treated individually, so rather than using the same moisturizer over your entire face, use an oil-balancing moisturizer on your T-Zone to control shine and a richer moisturizer on your cheeks for hydration.
5. Don’t forget SPF
Always wear sun protection, but opt for one that suits you to ensure you are perfectly protected.
