Shop Skincare for Combination Skin

Combination skin is probably the most widely misunderstood skin type. There is a lot of misinformation out there - and oddly, many products that truly cater to combination skin. Yet, combination skin is one of the most common skin types.


How do you know if you have combination skin?

Combination skin can manifest in a few different ways - the classic is usually a t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) that can become oily throughout the day, while the rest of your face is normal or dehydrated. Combination skin is completely normal.

You also may or may not experience breakouts - they’re not inherently a part of combination skin though. If you do have them, how you treat them will depend on where they are on your skin.


What's the best routine for combination skin?

Just like every other skin type, it’s important that your combination skin is properly protected and hydrated. The most basic routine will be a cleanser and moisturiser, with a face sunscreen for daytime. We recommend you add a serum too however, as it doesn’t add much time at all to your routine, and will mean that you’re treating your main skincare concerns.


Does combination skin need a moisturiser, even where it’s prone to oil?

Yes! The same advice that we would give to someone who is prone to oil all over, also applies to someone with combination skin. Your skin will produce oil when it feels dehydrated to try and protect itself. In fact, you can actually balance your oil levels over time by ensuring that your skin is adequately hydrated.

Skincare has come a long way in the last few decades - it’s now easier than ever to find a nice lightweight moisturiser that will provide the hydration your skin needs, without adding richness where your skin doesn’t need it.


What's the best moisturiser for combination skin?

There are a lot of great options for combination skin, no matter what price range you prefer to shop from.

You're looking for something lightweight, that wont make you shiny by the end of day, but will still prevent dehydration.

This is moisturiser is amazing. I had been using the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream but my skin needed far more moisture and it was causing little bumps along my chin. I've been using this moisturiser for literally a day and the bumps are gone and my skin feels impossibly soft and smooth again. I'll never use anything else.

love love love

I've used almost a jar and I can honestly say that my skin is plump, even-toned, bright and clear. I love it. I've used a lot of vit c in the past and I have to say that this brand in the powder form is the best. I've tried the lotion form, and it's too gritty. I mix this powder with face oil as it can be quite drying and it works best. I also use it for my underarms and can tell the difference. I...
