Listening to your skin is the greatest skincare routine available to you if you desire clear and beautiful skin. Each skin has its own set of requirements that you must identify and meet. You can't just go to the store and buy something and apply it to your skin. Depending on the type of skin you have, it may or may not work.
The epidermis, dermis, and fat tissues of each person's skin are all different. They're the ones that make your skin oily, dry, and in combination. The kind of skin varies based on the amount of oil produced by the sebaceous glands in the dermis layer. As a result, before purchasing any goods from the counter, you must first determine your skin type.
Combination of skin feels oily in the area of forehead, nose, and chin but dry everywhere else. It is oily and dry at different locations.
What is combination skin?
Combination of skin is not necessarily oily or dry. It is a combination of both where certain parts of the facial region are oily and other parts are dry. This type of combination skin can be a permanent structure or sometimes occurs only during certain seasons. For example, the skin might be only during the summer season and extremely dry during the winter season which indicates that the person has a combination skin that is seasonal in nature. Similarly when a person has facial skin with oiliness in the forehead and nose regions and dryness in the cheeks and chin, then it means they have combination skin in the same face.
How can one know if he/she has a combination skin?
If you have combination skin, your T- area that is your forehead, chin and nose feels oily, and the rest part is dry. Also, the pores near our nose are large and often clogged but are small and unnoticeable on another area of our face. Also, after cleansing, your skin will feel clean, refreshed, and oil-free but will be tight around your cheeks.
To be more exact maintaining a combination skin can be more challenging than normal skin. When you have oily skin you can apply products related to that all over but for combination skin, you have to use products that are mild and should not affect both types of skin. Some of the common issues faced by people with combination skin include,
- It results in the appearance of large pores in certain parts of the skin while the remaining parts appear with minute pores.
- Certain parts of the skin will be oily with acne problems while the other parts will have dry patches.
- It is impossible to apply any medication and hence you can use only mild products on the skin.
