Learn what combination skin is exactly in this blog and discover the proper skin treatments and products you can use to put your best face forward!
Combination skin is a skin type wherein you have both dry skin and oily skin in the different parts of your face. When one has a combination skin type, they usually have dry skin on the cheeks and oily skin on the forehead, nose, and chin or in the so-called T-Zone
We are all born with a specific skin type. Having combination skin can also be the result of various intrinsic and extrinsic factors.
Certain skin disorders can worsen the dryness and oiliness that are both present when one has combination skin. Rosacea, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis are some conditions that can worsen the dryness or oiliness of the skin.
Hormones and sebum are closely related to each other. Expect oily skin when hormones are working the most - teen years, women’s monthly period cycles, birth control and menopause are all hormonal triggers.

Certain medications like diuretics, antihistamines and acne medication can cause dry skin while corticosteroids, lithium, and anticonvulsants have the ability to worsen oily skin.
Stress can make skin oily and dry at the same time! A 2015 research showed that high levels of anxiety can lead to dry skin. Our skin produces less hyaluronic acid, a compound that helps the skin retain moisture, when we experience extreme psychological stress.
Also, our body produces cortisol in response to stress. Cortisol causes skin’s sebaceous glands to produce more sebum!

Your skin care regime
An improper skin care routine may worsen dry and oily skin, so it’s best to adapt a skin regimen that can work best for your skin condition.
Wrong skincare ingredients
Using products that contain harsh, harmful and ingredients that aggravate skin can dry out some areas of the face, and stimulate oil production in other parts that are already oily!
Prolonged and unprotected sun exposure
Our skin’s worst enemy are the harmful UV rays of the sun! Unprotected UV ray exposure worsens all kinds of skin problems and conditions including skin dryness and oiliness!
Dwindling temperatures and humidity significantly affects our skin. Change in weather, season, indoor and outdoor temps can cause or worsen dry skin, and affects our skin’s production of sebum!
Pollutants and irritants that are present in the air can cause and worsen a lot of skin conditions and even diseases! That is why it’s important to protect the skin at all times.

Choose gently formulated products that can hydrate and moisturize dry areas, and control oiliness at the same time! Plus, you should only apply special treatments to the needed areas for specific skin problems.
