Combination Skin Type
Combination Skin is thought to be one of the most common skin types. A variety of factors can contribute to combination skin, but more often than not, it just comes down to the luck of the draw in terms of what you inherited from your parents, in other words, it’s genetic.This skin type features two or more different skin types on the face, and the condition of your skin may fluctuate between seasons.
Typically, the combination skin type is characterised by dry, flaking skin on the cheeks, while excessive oil and shine appears on other areas of the face. Your skin can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). Many people have this type. It may need slightly different care in different areas.
Those with combination skin are in a constant battle with their T-Zone.
How to balance two different skin types can seem like a mystery, but unlocking this mystery is easier than you might think! With the right information and skincare products, balance can be beautiful!

BASIC Skin Type Test
- Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and water. Use your hands to clean your face and avoid scrubbing too hard.
- Dry your face with a soft towel and leave your skin alone for one hour without applying any products or touching it.
- If your face feels tight and dry after about a half-hour to an hour after washing, you most likely have Dry skin.
- Alternatively, if you notice shiny patches popping up all over your face, that’s Oily skin.
- Combination skin will feel dry in some areas while oily in other parts of the face.
- Normal skin won’t feel either oily or dry after washing your face––it’ll just feel balanced, plump, and hydrated (hello, skincare goals).
- Sensitive skin is not actually a skin type. Sensitive skin is simply easily irritated skin, especially when you interact with new products or environments. A change of skincare will generally fix this.
