Combination Skin Skincare Tips and Advice
Step by Step: How to Care for Combination Skin
It is not easy to find the right products for combination skin. The T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) is often very oily, while the cheeks are rather dry and can feel tight. Good products for combination skin moisturize the dry parts of the face without making the T-zone oilier. From cleansers for combination skin to an anti-aging sheet mask – DALTON offers effective solutions and a wide range of products for combination skin.
1. Cleansers for combination skin
Proper cleansing is very important for combination skin, to unblock pores and prevent them from clogging. Make-up residues and excess sebum can be gently removed. Our Cleansing Gel for blemish-prone skin cleanses thoroughly and refreshes the skin. If you are looking for additional anti-aging benefits, try our innovative Cleansing Mousse. After you have cleansed your skin, follow with a tonic. This is a key step in any combination skin routine, as it eliminates remaining traces of dirt or make-up and prepares the skin for better absorption of subsequent skincare products, such as moisturizers and serums. Again, you can choose between an anti-aging toner and our clarifying toner for blemish-prone skin. If you have very small and tight pores, you should also exfoliate your face once or twice a week. We recommend the Enzyme Peeling or AHA Peeling, to gently remove dead skin cells from dry skin areas and deep clean the pores.
2. Best moisturizer for combination skin
Just like your cleanser, your moisturizer needs to meet all the complex needs of combination skin. If you show only moderate signs of combination skin, i.e. your T-zone is just a bit oily and your cheeks are not too dry, you can just use a lightweight moisturizer for your daily routine. In cases of more severe forms of combination skin, one would either have to use two moisturizers, one for the oily T-zone and one for the dry cheek area, or use a moisturizer that is specifically designed for combination skin.
The Oyster Anti-Aging Cream for combination skin provides nourishing care to dry skin areas without overwhelming the oily areas of the T-zone. Thanks to our Celumer Marine Extract, it has a proven anti-aging effect as well. For young combination skin, you could also use our Blue Essentials Day Cream. It offers additional protection from blue light and environmental stress.
Our SENSITIVE CARE Cream Light is perfect for sensitive and allergy-prone combination skin. The fragrance-free formula restores and strengthens the skin barrier.
3. Best face mask for combination skin
Balancing face masks are a great way to complement your daily skincare routine. If your skin is prone to blemishes, we recommend our anti-inflammatory Oyster Mask. This special mask for combination skin and enlarged pores clears the pores and leaves the skin supple and refreshed. Our vegan Anti-Blemish Sheet Mask is another great choice for oily combination skin. It reduces redness caused by pimples and leaves a matte complexion, without stripping the skin of moisture. Can’t decide on one mask? Try multi-masking and just combine two different masks! Our tip: The OYSTER Mask is ideal for the oily T-zone, while our Beauty Mask hydrates and revitalizes the dry cheek area.
4. Additional skincare for combination skin
One of the most common problems with combination skin is an excessively oily T-zone. In such cases, mattifying products can help to control shine and improve the complexion in the long term, without clogging pores. Our OYSTER Pipette Concentrate has a mattifying effect and balances the complex needs of combination skin. Our #multitasking ampoule is a quick fix for oily skin and keeps the skin shine-free for up to 8 hours. You can even spray it over your make-up with our ampoule sprayer. The SOS Spot Concentrate offers an instant remedy for pimples and blemishes.
