Combination Skin

Visual Aspect

Combination skin is, as the name suggests, divided into two types or conditions of skin. It is usually characterized by a fatty part in the T zone, i.e. the forehead, nose and chin. This T zone reveals dilated pores and excess sebum, which may occasionally present some imperfections, blackheads and red spots. As a result, this part of the face promotes an irregular skin texture and visible pores. As for the cheeks, the skin is usually normal in this area, without specific characteristics, except for some slight dehydration, which is present in all skin types.

In fact, the skin is only able to produce sebum (a fatty substance) that will create a protective film known as the hydrolipidic film. However, the skin does not secrete water.

Causes

For the ones with combination skin: This type of skin tends to produce oil in the T-zone, but it can be dry in the rest of the face. This is usually due to genetics, but it can also be a sign of the skin’s hormonal imbalance triggered by hormones, stress, diet, tobacco and humidity. The use of products containing ingredients that can be aggressive or aggravating for the skin, such as alcohol, will inevitably dry out certain areas of your face while stimulating the production of oil in other parts, (especially around the nose), which are already oily.
