Every person is blessed with a different skin type, some have oily skin, some have normal, some have dry, and some have combination skin. With a different skin type come a different skincare routine as the same products or the steps cannot be followed for different skin types. And as we speak of that, combination skin equals confusion. The struggle is real, and only the girls with this skin type can understand what exactly we are talking about. For instance, they don’t know where to apply the moisturizer, how much to apply, and if they need to moisturize at all. Now you know that everything seems a bit too confusing and tricky when it comes to people with combination skin. Some areas on your face seem completely dry, and the other part appears oily, and keeping both the things in mind while performing your skincare routine can easily leave anyone frustrated. However, you don’t need to be disappointed or frustrated to have got such skin type, it’s just about having the right skincare products and the routine, and all your skin woes will resolve in no time. Fortunately enough, we have got you covered by briefing you about all the things that you shouldn’t be doing if you have got combination skin.
Don’t skip on moisturizer.
The biggest and the worst mistake you could ever do to your skin is not moisturizing it. While we understand that dealing with combination skin can be extremely confusing, and you don’t feel the need to put a moisturizer, but you surely cannot miss out on this step. It’s not just the dry patches on your face that need hydration, but the oily patches also require the same amount of hydration. And what you can do is, moisturize the dry patches on your face twice a day and moisturize the dry areas only once a day. You can apply a lightweight moisturizer as it won’t clog your pores and will keep your skin looking fresh all day long.
Don’t take face masks for granted.
Face masks can be an ultimate savior; however, applying face masks on people with combination skin type can be a bit tricky. The reality is that a single face mask is not going to do any good to your skin; you need some serious multitasking to resolve all your skin woes. Multi-tasking should be your thing as it will target different skin concerns at the same time. You can mix and match different face masks depending on your skin’s needs. Apply a non-oily, non-greasy face mask on the oilier part of your faces such as the t-zone, chin, and forehead and opt for a nourishing face mask for dry areas.
Don’t forget to exfoliate your skin.
Exfoliation plays a major role in any skincare routine. While over scrubbing is a big no, but you should perform this step at least once or twice a week to improve the health and texture of your skin. Oil-free scrubs are an ideal choice for people with combination skin, which helps in deep cleansing, sloughing off the dead skin cell, and provides a radiant glow to the face. You can take this step slow and exfoliate only once or twice a week to see how your skin reacts to exfoliation.
Don’t skip on primer.
To make your face and makeup look flawless and even, it’s important to layer your face with primer as well. Because of how some areas of your face appear dry and oily, the finish of the foundation can easily look uneven and patchy. This is why you should always prime your face with a good primer to prep your skin before applying any makeup product on it. Primer won’t only help to give you a flawless finish, but it will also keep your makeup from moving and will also make it look unified.
