Skincare dos and don’ts for those with combination skin

Ah! Combination skin can be tricky to deal with. You have to be extra careful while picking beauty products have to carry blotting paper as well as a lightweight moisturiser and you are never really sure how your skin is going to behave. With such a complicated skin type, you could need some help. Here are few dos and don’ts for combination skin that can make your life easier and save you a lot of drama. So, read on.


Do: Mix up your products

Do: Keep changing your skincare routine

Combinations skin deals with hav* an oily forehead, nose and chin T-zone and dry cheeks U-zone. Your skin needs different skincare products that target both the issues. Stick to water-based, non-comodegenic products for your T-zone and moisturising, oil based products for the rest of your face.


Don’t: Skip on moisturising

Do: Keep changing your skincare routine

Oily skin and combination skin too needs hydration and skipping moisturising isn’t going to help. It will make your U-zone drier and tighter. Instead, use a moisturiser with a light, oil free moisturiser such as Ponds Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel. It will hydrate your skin without clogging the pores.


Do: Exfoliate regularly

Do: Keep changing your skincare routine

An oily T-zone invites blackheads, whiteheads and acne. Use a scrub twice a week to get the excess oil off and remove dead skin cells. We suggest St. Ives Energizing Coconut & Coffee Scrub. While the coffee extracts in it remove the oil and dead skin cell build-up, coconut extracts moisturise the skin.


Don’t: Forget to use a toner

Do: Keep changing your skincare routine

After you cleanse your face, always use a toner. It helps shrink the pores, clear out oil, hydrate and maintain the pH balance of your skin. Use an alcohol-free, gentle toner like Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner and apply on your face with the help of a cotton pad.

While everyone’s skin behaves differently according to changes in the season, combination skin starts acting up with even a mild change in the weather. On warmer days, it gets oily and need lighter products. Similarly, it needs moisturising, non-comedogenic products on colder days to beat the dryness.
