What is Combination skin type?

Combination skin includes areas that are dry as well as oily—with the T-zone commonly being oily, and the cheeks being either dry or normal. This skin type can vary during different seasons of the year, and due to various factors, such as stress or hormone fluctuation. 

  • Combination skin is exactly what it sounds like: a skin type that combines more than one skin condition. Usually combination skin features oily/greasy skin on the T-Zone (forehead, nose and chin) and dry and/or tight patches on the cheeks.

  • Shiny skin: Those with combination skin experience shine on at least one portion of their face. For most, this shine is most prevalent in the T-Zone, and occurs because of excess oil production.

  • Blackheads and whiteheads: When oil becomes trapped in your pores, it mixes with dead skin cells and other debris, causing a plug. When this plug is open to the air, it causes a blackhead; when it’s closed, it results in the formation of a whitehead.

  • You deal with dry patches and acne breakouts at the same time: If you have deal with dry patches and acne breakouts simultaneously, you’re likely dealing with combination skin.
