Combination Skin

Combination skin, also called “normal”, is far from normal. It usually produces a regular amount of sebum, with potentially more on the T-zone, formed by the forehead, nose and chin.

Unlike the other two types of skin – oily and dry, conditions that affect skin as a result of its type are not that common, such as acne or breakouts, or sensitivity related issues such as rosacea, eczema or others that tend to be more prominent in dry skin. Finding the right routine and products can be more tricky than when having oily or dry skin, as generally products are not specified for normal/combination skin.

What is The "T-Zone"?

The “T-Zone” is an area of the face that includes the forehead, nose, chin and sometimes neck. It has more sebaceous glands than anywhere else on your face. The T-Zone is often associated with a combination skin type.

People with combination skin types will find their face oily in the “T-Zone” while another areas of the face (cheeks) are dry. This type of skin often leads to acne and blemishes in the T-Zone parts of the face and dry, peeling skin in the other areas of the face.

Gently cleanse your face twice a day with a mild cleanser to help unblock pores, use a light moisturizer, and use an astringent/toner.
