Combination Skin Defined
Before you begin shopping this selection of moisturizers
, you need to make certain that you have a combination complexion. One of the five common skin types, combination skin develops when moisture levels in the skin vary across the complexion. Normally, the skin is oilier along the T-zone area comprised of the forehead, nose and chin and drier along the cheeks.
If you have a combination complexion, your T-zone may frequently appear shiny or feel greasy, while the rest of your skin may look and feel normal to dry. Many people with combination skin find that when they use products for oily complexions, their cheeks become rough and flaky due to dryness.
A Single Moisturizer for the Entire Face
Some people attempt to deal with combination skin by using a moisturizer for oily skin on the T-zone and one for normal or dry skin on the cheeks. This may be effective in some cases, but it does become expensive and can be a hassle.
Combination moisturizers are a simpler way to properly hydrate the entire complexion. These skin care products
are balanced to supply the optimal amount of moisture to the tissue, so that the cheeks do not become parched and the T-zone does not become congested or greasy.
Many clinical strength moisturizers for combination skin even help to regulate oil production to normalize the complexion and make the differences in oil content between the T-zone and the cheeks less dramatic.
