Not everyone will respond to any skincare product in the same way as others. This is because not everyone’s skin shares the same qualities. Some people have naturally dry skin, and they need products that can moisturize them as a result. Other people have naturally oily skin, so the skincare items they use must take that into account.

This gets more complicated for those who must deal with people who have both oily and dry skin. Thankfully, while proper skincare may be trickier for them, it is also not impossible to do right. Here is some information on combination skin and how to treat it.

What is Combination Skin?

Combination skin is the name for the condition of having oily and dry skin on the same body. This can be accompanied by a bevy of other skin issues, including breakouts, blackheads, and dehydration. Existing issues may also be exacerbated, as receiving the appropriate skincare gets more difficult.

As with many skin problems, combination skin may be the result of several different factors. Sometimes, it is a fluke of genetics. Other times, it is an improper use of skincare products, or hormonal shifts, or a negative dermal reaction to changes in weather and climate.

How to Tell If You Have Combination Skin

Identifying whether or not you have combination skin largely involves checking your T-zone. This is a T-shaped area covering your chin and your nose, as well as extending across your forehead. That stretch of your face is where many of your oil-producing glands are located. If the rest of your face seems really dry in comparison, you likely have this issue.

You could also observe whether you have different skin issues in different parts. Parts of your face may have dry patches while others, particularly the T-zone, may be experiencing breakouts.

How to Care for Combination Skin

Combination skin requires extra attention — as we said, different skincare products will have different effects on different kinds of skin. You can find items for oil skin and for dry skin, as well as moisturizers, masks, and much more. These treatments can go a long way towards restoring the balance in your skin. Visit our online superstore today and discover the tools you need.
