Proper care for combination skin: What you need to know
Everyday care for typical combination skin can sometimes be a real balancing act: While the greasy skin particles need clarifying, pore-refining nourishment, the “normal” areas of skin appreciate light moisturising that provides your skin with sufficient protection. If the skin on your cheeks is very dry and flaky, comprehensive nourishment may even be helpful. Your beauty regime is a little “tricky”: It has to fulfil the wishes of two different kinds of skin at the same time. On this page, we will reveal the things you really need to watch out for.
Top tip: The different creams can also be applied selectively to the corresponding areas (mattifying, clarifying cream for the greasy T-zone and heavier creams for the cheeks).
lavera Naturkosmetik research has developed balancing facial care products using high-quality, organic ingredients that are appropriate for your skin type and specifically target combination skin. It provides a balanced ratio of lightly moisturising and clarifying, antibacterial ingredients. Find out what a perfectly coordinated care regime for combination skin looks like in the next section.
While the T-zone usually produces too much grease, conversely, the dry cheek areas are not greasy enough. This poses a big challenge for facial cleansing. It’s not easy to find the perfect cleansing products and routines. To avoid combination skin being cleansed too often or too aggressively, we recommend that you opt for thorough but mild cleansing in the morning and the evening. The aim of this care is to give the skin a refined and mattified appearance.
A cleansing gel that thoroughly removes dirt and make-up from your skin while also giving it valuable moisture is a must-have product for this type of skin. As a second step, apply a clarifying, lightly degreasing toner, ideally only on the greasy T-zone.
It can help your skin to better absorb the valuable ingredients in the following care products and also removes the remaining dirt particles and make-up residues that can lead to new blemishes.
