If you feel identified with this little problem, don't worry! Next, we give you the keys to take care of it in the best possible way so that you feel great 24 hours a day!

What are the characteristics of combination skin?

The main basis of combination skin is that it has oily areas and others a little drier. Normally, the fatty part is usually found on the forehead, the nose (and surroundings), and the chin. This is the well-known "T zone", where you can see more imperfections, such as open pores, pimples, blackheads, and increased sebum production.
In the rest of the face, these imperfections do not appear since this area is finer and more delicate, and, in it, pimples do not usually appear, and the pores are practically closed.
This type of skin needs specific care.

5 tips to take care of combination skin

  • When you wash your face in the morning and at night, use a special soap dedicated exclusively to this type of skin. It is not recommended to use ordinary soaps, as, as a general rule, they can cause dryness on the cheeks if you have a mixed complexion.
  • Try to avoid hot water, even in the middle of winter! Why? It is always better to wash your face with warm or cold water if you have oily or combination skin since hot water can increase the production of sebum in your "T zone," thus increasing the possible opening of the pores and the appearance of pimples and pimples.
  • Many beauty experts recommend that, for those who have combination skin, it is advisable to use a different type of cleansing at each moment of the day. A foaming soap is recommended in the mornings to remove oil production and, at night, a cream-based soap to hydrate and replenish the moisture your skin needs. In addition to all this, it is necessary to exfoliate your skin at least three times a week. In this way, you eliminate all kinds of impurities that can appear on combination skin.
  • Up with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory products! Try to find those cares that contain these components, since they are very beneficial for this type of skin, staying away from those with high levels of alcohol since they can dry out your skin even more in the driest areas. Some people claim that antioxidants are the secret to eternal youth!
  • You can use a cream for oily skin in the "T zone" and another for dry skin on the rest of your complexion, but this is a bit of a drag! Try to choose a cream suitable for combination skin, oil-free, and easily absorbed, and the trick will be in how you apply it! You must locate key points with your fingertips on each cheek, forehead, and the chin. Start by spreading it on your cheeks, using circular motions to penetrate better, and always apply a smaller amount on the forehead and chin.
  • If you follow these 5 steps, you will achieve a completely cared for and perfectly hydrated mixed complexion! We know that it is a very specific type of skin, but be constant when treating it, and you will see how immediately you begin to see the first results.
