If you have combination skin, you’ll know how frustrating it can be when it comes to your skincare routine. Finding the right products to treat each area of your skin is not always easy and, undoubtedly, more complicated than it is for individuals with either a dry or oily skin type.

Choosing your products and developing a skincare regime that works may take some time, but it’s definitely time well spent. Here are our tips for creating your most effective daily routine for combination skin, guaranteed to be frustration-free!

Cleansing – It goes without saying that washing the skin on a regular basis is extremely important, not only to whisk away the day’s dirt and debris, but to also create a balance of PH levels.

Using a cleanser that encourages and maintains this balance is essential and is one of the benefits of Solvaderm’s Dermpura. Infused with natural botanical extracts and moisturizers, Dermpura is designed to effectively lift dirt while protecting the skin’s barrier, reducing the risk of moisture loss. With a gentle foaming action, it can be used twice a day without leaving the skin irritated or overly dry.

Toning – This often-overlooked step is very important to those with combination skin. A good toner will consist of beneficial ingredients that remove any excess dirt and make-up, but not contain overly-strong astringents that strip vital oils. Maxatone is specifically formulated to target the blackheads and whiteheads which are common to combination skin, shrinking enlarged pores without causing the skin to feel tight in the drier areas. The result is skin that remains well-hydrated, clear, and blemish-free.

Moisturizing – The type of moisturizer you use when you have combination skin is vitally important, and you may have to apply two different formulas if your skin is extremely dry in some parts and oily in others.

For areas of the face, such as the cheeks, where the skin tends to be rough or flaky, a rich, heavier cream will be needed. Suvoderm Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream is perfect as it uses highly hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Grapeseed oil, and Avocado oil to smooth away dry skin and keep the complexion soft and supple.

Where the skin is oilier, usually on the forehead, nose, and chin, it’s best to use a cream with a lighter texture, that won’t clog pores or exacerbate the problem. With an easily-absorbed gel-cream formula, Infusoderm is ideal for combination skin, as it provides just the right amount of hydration without leaving a greasy residue.

Exfoliating – While not part of the daily skincare routine, you should make a point of exfoliating at least once a week to remove the build-up of dead skin cells. You want to make sure you don’t irritate the dry, often more sensitive areas of your skin, so avoid harsh scrubs and look for a formula that uses natural fruit acids, such as those found in Glowpeel. In addition to its highly effective exfoliating action, this clinically proven dermal resurfacing peel speeds skin cell turnover and leaves the complexion visibly brighter, often after just one use.
