The term "combination skin" refers to a skin type that combines two different skin types: normal to dry skin and oily skin. The forehead, chin, and nose are included in the T-zone, which has oilier skin than other parts of the body. Combination skin consists of both dry and oily patches, with the cheekbones typically being normal or dry and the T zone typically being oily. Combination skin is challenging to manage. Here are things to avoid if you have combination skin, take a look:
1. Products With Excessive Fragrance
ome skin types may tolerate fragrance, others may have rashes, irritation, and redness because of it. Both dry and oily skin can become irritated by products that contain harsh chemicals like alcohol or scent. So, in combination with skin type the oily regions may create more oil, causing breakouts, while dry regions may become drier.
2. Heavy Moisturisers
[photo2]While rich, heavy moisturisers may provide comfort for dry skin, they can also block pores on your T-zone and encourage skin issues like blackheads and acne. Avoid using oil-based moisturisers because they will worsen the issue. Use a lightweight lotion instead that the skin can quickly absorb. So make sure to buy a moisturiser that doesn't damage your pores and which can prevent dry patches.
3. Clay Face Masks
Although clay face masks are popular right now, that doesn't mean that they can suit every skin type. The T-zone will surely be cleaned of excess oil, but your cheekbones and other dry parts of your face will also be drained of oil. Choose mild, moisturising, and soothing sheet masks for your skin.Don't miss: Get Your Skin Summer Ready Ft. 5 Step Skincare Routine
