Do you struggle with dry skin but still have to deal with annoying breakouts? Is skin feeling oily but also flaky in certain areas? Sounds to us like you’ve got combination skin – but don’t worry! Our skincare gurus have got you covered with the ultimate skincare routine for combination skin! We reveal our top products for combination skin, teaching you how to use them and how to care for this often unpredictable skin type.
What Is Combination Skin?
As the name suggests, combination skin is a combination of skin types. You’ll likely have oily areas (typically your T-zone, nose and chin) and normal to dry skin on your cheeks and hairline.
Signs You Have Combination Skin
- Oily T-zone, nose and chin
- Normal to dry skin elsewhere, particularly on cheeks and hairline
- Mild breakouts on forehead, nose and chin
- Larger pores on chin, nose and forehead
- Patchy-looking makeup
What Causes Combination Skin?
The oilier areas are caused by overactive oil glands in your T-zone. More often than not, it’s a genetic thing.
However, sometimes the products you use can make the problem areas worse. So, it’s crucial to apply the correct products for combination skin to enhance your complexion and keep it looking healthy.
Best Skincare Routine for Combination Skin
Trust us, using the best products for combination skin is the only way to manage both those dry and greasier areas. Products that are targeted at very oily skin can cause your dry areas to worsen – and vice versa – intensely moisturizing products that target dry patches can cause oily areas to get even oilier!
Follow this step-by-step skincare routine for combination skin to ensure all areas of concern receive the best possible care, attention and ingredients to help maintain soft, supple and healthy-looking skin.
Step 1 – Cleanse
Kickstart your routine with the Revolution Skincare Retinol Cream Cleanser for combination skin. Renowned for its ability to decongest pores, this Retinol-powered formula works to unclog, deeply cleanse and instantly refresh, unleashing anti-aging properties to promote youthful-looking skin.
