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.

Gentle yet Effective

I ordered the second bottle after my sister whom I gave the first one to, swears by it. I'd noticed that my skin is glowing and hormonal acne is kept at bay. It improves the overall health of my skin and reduced fine lines. Will definitely buy again.

This is one of my absolute favourite serums I have used. It is gentle on the skin but packets a big punch. It refines and brightens the skin. Making it feel baby soft. And makes the skin tone even.

Not a Fan

Got this as a sample, was really thick for a toner. Left my skin tacky. No noticeable improvements after use.

Gentle enough for SUPER SENSITIVE SKIN

If you are scared like me to introduce exfoliation into your skincare routine. This is fab! I had been using skin medication for a year and had not been able to use exfoliants in addition to medication. So finally after a year and a half. I thought my skin was ready to introduce something gentle.

While this says safe DAILY gentle exfoliation. As my skin has not had any exfoliation for over a year. I have been doing every four days and slowly increasing to every second day.

Took me by surprise that it was a powder and you turn it into a paste. But i kind of love it. No stinging or stripping feeling. And no reactions.
