Features of Combination Skin

It is the most visible skin type in the 20s. Due to the imbalance of oil and moisture in the skin, it has the characteristics of both dry skin and oily skin. The pores on the forehead and nose with excessive sebum release are large (characteristic of oily skin). Tension is felt in the chin and cheeks. (Characteristic of dry skin)

Normal skin may also turn into combination skin from time to time due to the change of cosmetic products or seasonal changes.

It is difficult to maintain as different maintenance is required according to the region.

Usually, the T-zone is oily and the U-zone is normal or dry. But some of them have normal T-zone and extremely dry in another area. Therefore, first of all, it is necessary to understand which area belongs to which skin type and to provide appropriate care according to the region.

For example, you have normal T-zone skin and dry skin on the other. But if you think of your skin as dry skin and use oily products, you will experience skin problems such as acne.

Combination Skin Care Routine

You need to balance the moisture and oil content of the skin by applying different care according to the region.

Try to keep it clean by removing sebum from the excessive oily area. Try to prevent wrinkles by moisturizing and retaining moisture around the cheeks and mouth, where tension is felt due to the dryness of the skin.

Mask application for mixed skin is also different. Clean the pores by applying a clay mask on the oily T-area and prevent the pores from widening. If the dry U area is, apply the night mask and provide moisture nutrition throughout the night.

01 Makeup Remover

It is difficult for a normal facial cleanser to remove thick waterproof makeup. First, remove your makeup with makeup remover. Gently massage. Clean your skin by dissolving impurities.

Gel-type makeup remover with plenty of moisture is suitable for cleansing oily T-zone and dry U-zone. It helps to balance the oil and moisture in the skin.

It can also be a light cleansing oil. It has moisturizing and acne removal properties. If you top it off with a facial cleanser, it’s okay to be slightly oily.


02 Facial Cleanser

When washing your face, try to remove excess sebum by paying more attention to the T-zone. On the other hand, make sure that the skin barrier that protects the moisture in the skin is not damaged by cleaning it gently. Foam type product is suitable for combination skin. Apply plenty of foams to clean the T-zone. U-zone, on the other hand, clean with little foam like rinsing with water.

03 Tonic

You can use a tonic to remove makeup residue and sebum left in the T-Zone after facial cleansing. The alcohol-containing tonic will help to balance the oil content in the skin by reducing sebum production. Apply with a cotton ball according to the skin texture.

04 Essence

Since there are different skin types according to the regions, it is recommended to use basic care products separately. If you want to care with a single product, apply essences produced for oily skin type. Products with low-fat content and light moisturizing properties are recommended.

05 Eye Cream

Since there are few oil glands around the eyes, it dries faster than the other area and accelerates the formation of fine wrinkles. You can prevent the formation of wrinkles and bruises under the eyes by creating a moisture barrier with an eye cream that moisturizes the skin.

06 Cream

Combination of skin also needs moisturizing. If enough moisture is not fed, the dead skin on the U area and cheeks swell. Apply more intensely to U-area and cheeks. Apply lightly in a thin layer on the T-zone.

07 Sun Cream

The most important product for every skin type is facial cleanser and sunscreen. Always apply sunscreen half an hour before going out.

08 Peeling

You can support daily care by applying it once a week. Apply more carefully to the T-zone with high oil release. Apply gently to the U-area and cheeks without stimulating the skin.

09 Clay Mask

Apply the clay mask on the T area 2-3 times a week. Support daily care by removing excess sebum.

10 Night Cream

We recommend that you use a night cream instead of a disposable face mask as different care needs to be provided according to the regions. Apply to dry U-area and cheeks. Apply lightly to the oily T-area as a thin layer. Try to balance the moisture and oil content of the fence by applying it 3-4 times a week.
