Your Skin Type is...Combination Skin


Black Woman with Normal Combination Skin


Having combination skin is very normal as it is the most common skin type out there. Even though it is so common, knowing how to take care of your combination skin can still seem daunting.


People with combination skin are usually oily around their T-zone, which is where breakouts are most likely to happen. Meanwhile, the rest of your skin may feel tight and dry. As a result, combination skin needs a specific routine and the best products for achieving balance. Finding the right methods and products to accomplish this can be frustrating but it’s totally doable.

Read on for more tips.


Ready to get your skin glowing? Here are some tips to get you started!


1) Don't overdo it! A common mistake with combination skin is over-cleansing your face.  Washing your face too often can strip your skin of its natural oils that help you stay in balance. Limit face washing to no more than twice a day.


2) Use a gentle cleanser, like our Clear Consciousness Calming Botanical Cleanser. If you need a deep pore cleanse, grab our Purifying Nutmeg Facial Mask Powder. It is gentle, non-drying and prepares the surface of your skin to absorb your moisturizer well.


3) Get that hydration! Just like other skin types, combination skin needs a good dose of hydration. A good quality serum, like our Ethereal Indulgence Hydrating Dew will help your skin feel nourished and look healthy.
