"Pocket" how to properly care for combination skin to keep skin healthy, beautiful and smooth

Combination skin is often likened to a "fluffy" girl, difficult to please when it has more diverse characteristics than other skin types. Therefore, if not cared for properly, it is easy to lead to skin damage or premature aging.

What is combination skin?

Combination skin is a combination of oily skin in the T-zone (including the nose and forehead) with dry skin on the cheeks and normal skin on the chin area. The T-zone will appear oily on the face and the cheeks will be dry and flaky. Combination skin is usually divided into two types: oily combination skin and dry combination skin that women often confuse.

+ Dry combination skin is skin that consists mostly of dry and a small part of it is oily. Specifically, those with this skin will often have the following symptoms: The skin on the forehead, cheeks and chin is dry, but the nose is oily, or the chin and cheek area is dry but the forehead and nose are oily.

The best way to take care of combination skin

Care for each skin area

If your skin is oily on the T-zone and dry on the cheeks, it's nearly impossible to find a skin care product that can be used for the entire face. As for moisturizer, you should use an anti-acne cream for oily areas and an alcohol-free cream for the rest of the skin.

Wash your face with a mild cleanser

When facial skin has acne, many people tend to choose deep cleansing cleansers. However, this is a mistake for those with combination skin, as deep cleansing formulas can dry out the cheeks and stimulate the T-zone to produce more oil. It's best to use a gentle gel or cream cleanser to remove dirt and sebum without making your skin too dry or too oily.

Gently exfoliate at least twice a week

You may have cleansed and moisturized your skin properly, but if you don't exfoliate, your skin won't be at its best. Exfoliation is an important skin care routine, especially for combination skin, as the cheeks are often prone to dryness and flaking.

Apply moisturizer suitable for oily skin

Many women with combination skin have acne around the nose area, which is due to excessive sebum secretion from this skin area, which causes sebum to clog pores and cause acne.


Using a degreasing cream for oily skin can help get rid of blackheads, but it can also help tighten pores. This is one of the most effective ways to take care of combination skin. If used continuously for the first 3 days, then reduce to 1 time / week.
