People with combination skin often suffer from these problems and more. Although there are secrets to maintaining healthy skin, it's important to know how to cope with this particular type of skin. If you suffer from combination skin, read on to discover the reasons behind it and learn several simple ways to deal with it.

Five ways to deal with combination skin

It is crucial to keep in mind and stress that treatment for combination skin ought to be tailored to each individual's unique needs, taking into account the dry and oily areas on their face. The key rule is to treat each area of the face differently. While oil-absorbing ingredients found in some products may work wonders on oily areas, they may cause harm to dry areas, and moisturizing products that work well on dry areas can exacerbate oily areas. Therefore, when treating different areas of the face, it is essential to give individual attention to each area and match it with the appropriate product. Additionally, if you have combination skin, there are five effective treatment techniques that you should be aware of.
1. To achieve well-cleansed and moisturized facial skin, consider using water-soluble cleaning products that come in cream or gel form. These products effectively remove impurities and makeup without leaving the skin feeling dry or oily. For additional cleaning, use a soft-bristled cleaning brush to prevent irritation.

2. Opt for a soothing and moisturizing face wash that contains skin-rejuvenating substances and antioxidants. Good quality face water can also help moisturize dry areas and minimize oiliness in other areas. Using the same product will avoid excessive drying in dry areas or excessive oiliness in oily areas.
3.  Use gentle peeling products that are based on salicylic acid. This is an ideal choice for a gentle peeling treatment for combination skin. Salicylic acid is effective in shedding dead skin cells without damaging the skin. It also helps in removing pores, reducing oily skin, smoothing rough, dry and sensitive skin, and restoring the glow and shine of the facial skin. Additionally, it penetrates into the pores and cleans them while balancing the amount of oil they secrete.

4. Protect the facial skin from sun damage. The use of sunscreen is essential for all skin types, including combination skin. Applying sunscreen daily helps to reduce the early signs of aging and maintain healthy skin. It is recommended to use a gentle sunscreen for the face and apply it to the neck as well. Additionally, it is important to apply a nourishing product to the dry areas before using sunscreen.
5. Before retiring to bed, apply a moisturizer on your skin. Moisturizers are formulated with antioxidants, skin renewal and restoration ingredients that are crucial in calming the skin, minimizing excess oil and moisturizing the dry areas, particularly around your eyes. The mixture of these ingredients has incredible anti-aging properties for your skin.

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and apply the resulting mask to your face, taking care to avoid the eye and mouth areas. Leave the mask on for 10–15 minutes until it dries completely. Rinse your face with warm water followed by cold water to cool your pores, and dry with a soft towel. It is important to use normal probiotic yogurt to avoid skin irritations and allergies. Also, apply the mask over a sink to avoid any mess on the floor.
