But you can help your skin find the perfect balance by following a combination skin care routine. In the future, we will share tips on how to care for combination skin, as well as the necessary products to give her the balance she needs.
How To Identify Combination Skin
You will know that you have combination skin if you feel that you can cope with two different skin types at the same time. If you have oily skin, you can expect to have a greasy appearance complexion. You can also feel black dots and rashes. With dry skin, you can feel dry spots and even peeling on your face.

How To Care For Combination skin
Check out these skincare tips and useful product recommendations to help you create a customized skincare routine tailored to the needs of your combination skin.
1. Use a Mild Facial Cleanser
Your skin surface will be covered with dirt, excess oils and impurities throughout the day. Be sure to use a facial cleanser that will help to matte your oily T-zone without overdrying your cheeks and area under the eyes. The L’Oréal Paris Waterproof Micellaire Eau Cleanser – all Skin is an excellent choice for combination skin. It is a formula without conditioner that can be used to clean your skin surface and remove makeup. Be sure to cleanse your skin in the morning and evening to make sure you remove bacteria and excess sebum frequently enough.
2. Exfoliate Gently
If you have combination skin, exfoliating dead skin cells is the key to keeping your skin in good condition. If you are looking for a mild chemical exfoliating product that can be used daily, try the revitalift DERM Intensités 5% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating toner from L’Oréal Paris. This formulated glycolic acid toner gently smoothes the skin texture and removes dead skin cells.
3. Moisturize your skin
Regardless of your skin type, using a moisturizer is important to keep your skin healthy. For combination skin, it is best to opt for a moisturizing moisturizer without a feeling of heaviness or fat. The fragrance-free face cream Age Perfect Rosy Tone from L’Oreal Paris is ideal because it has a light texture and is formulated with lipohydroxy acid (LHA) to gently exfoliate and brighten the complexion.
4. Stop Touching Your Face
This is easier said than done, since you don’t even realize that you are doing it most of the time. But your hands carry a lot of bacteria and dirt, and you don’t want to transfer that to your face, as it could clog your pores.
5. Blot oil
If you have trouble fighting fat in your T-zone, try looking for blotting papers. These papers are easy to store in your pocket and can provide a quick way to reduce excess oil in the middle of the day. They will temporarily absorb oil without ruining your makeup.
6. Make broad-spectrum Sunscreen Your Best Friend
One of the best ways to take care of your skin is to apply a generous amount of SPF 30 or more daily. Spending time in the sun without SPF protection can cause damage that can lead to visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, this can lead to dryness. To reduce the steps of your routine, opt for L’Oréal Paris SPF 30 Triple Power revitalift Day Lotion, which is a moisturizing daily moisturizer with SPF and anti-aging properties.
7. Give Your Complexion A Face Mask
Multi-masking is an excellent skin care practice for combination skin. It’s about applying different masks to different areas of your face at the same time, depending on what each area needs. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Detox & Lightening Mask for your T-zone and fat areas. It is formulated with charcoal to remove impurities and tighten your pores. The driest areas are, opt for a moisturizing mask that will work to plump and brighten the skin. The Mask of the night Anti-Aging Triple-Power Revitalift from l’Oréal Paris is ideal because it acts to reduce the wrinkles, brightening and toning the skin while moisturizing it.
8. Do not forget your eyes
The area under the eyes is not only one of the first areas to show signs of aging, but it can also be a very dry area. To make sure that you are fighting skin problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark circles and dehydration, try an eye cream or eye serum such as L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensive with 1.5% hyaluronic acid, 1% Caffeine eye serum. It not only treats fine lines and wrinkles, but also moisturizes the delicate area and targets the causes of dark circles under the eyes.
