Skintervention : Combating "Combo Skin"

Monday, July 23, 2012
Hi Guys ! I am so glad i made it through another hectic week. For Today, we will be talking about "Combo Skin". As I always say "We are all different and therefore have different needs". I chose this skin type because it is the most problematic.




What is Combo Skin?
"When two or more skin types occurs on the face at the same time" , this condition is known as "combination skin". Let's say for example , your nose is dry and flaky and your cheeks are oily.




What Causes Combo Skin ?
There are a number of different factors that can cause combo skin. For each of these factors, the causes are of course different for everyone. The T-Zone (forehead, nose ,chin) are the most susceptible areas.

  • Skincare Products : Sometimes we might use products that contain certain ingredients that are considered to be irritants. These ingredients over work to speed up oil production, while at the same time causing the skin to become dry and flaky.
  • Hormonal Factors : Especially during menstruation in women. As you know the skin goes crazy around this time.
  • Environmental Humidity and Fluctuation : This is based on the weather depending on how hot and cold it is and how unpredictable it can be. For example in Jamaica , in May it is extremely hot , then its rainy , then windy. All these conditions affect the skin significantly.




  • Cleansing : Use a mild cleanser on your entire face for at least 2 times daily.
  • Balancing : Use products that contain Salicylic Acid , which are great for removing surface oils. Try products like Strivectin and Plexion Pads.
  • Moisturizing : Focus on the dry areas. Moisturizer should be used at least twice daily.
  • When applying Make-Up , use a foundation that is for combination skin.
  • Toner should be used over the T-Zone but be careful to avoid the dry areas.

Taking care of Combination takes a lot of time and dedication. Because it is such a unique condition , it is great to get all the information on it and the best ways to control it. Remember , we are all totally different and have totally different needs; some of the methods I've listed might work for some and not for others. For better results , please consult a Dermatologist.

  1. Thanks for this! I'm really confused about what type of skin I have because sometimes it's extremely oily, sometimes it's dry. And I've only been using products for oily skin :(

  6. I wish I could have smooth, even tone, supple skin. *sigh* I am better off than most still. Are those pads you mentioned pricey?
