When it comes to selecting the right kind of skincare products for your skin, the first most important step is to identify your own personal skin type. There are typically four main skin types: oily, dry, combination, or normal. A “combination” skin type refers to the situation when two or more different skin types are observed on your face at the same time. People with combination skin commonly possess an oily T-zone, which becomes especially shiny in warm and humid environments and as the day progresses. Thus, if you find yourself with a shiny forehead, nose and chin by midday, you have found the right page!
The secret to treating combination skin is to spot treat your problem areas. People with combination skin types should use a cleanser specially formulated to reduce sebum production. SEPHORA COLLECTION’s Toning Cleansing Gel is a recommended cleanser that works to eliminate excess sebum on your skin, thus treating your oily T-zone. Similarly, Alpha-H’s Triple Action Cleanser, formulated with a natural anti-bacterial blend of ingredients, is also effective in minimising excess oil and breakouts.
As for moisturisers, Korres’ Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturising & Brightening Cream is another excellent product for oily and combination skin types. This moisturiser is made with corn powder that absorbs oiliness and reduces "shine", hence offering a matte finish for your skin all day long. Meanwhile, for a luxurious moisturiser that helps combination skin, Erno Laszlo’s Oil Control Day Lotion SPF 15 is worth the splurge. Providing both sun protection and moisturising action, this superior formula is further packed with antioxidents to protect and nourish your skin.
