Tailored Skincare: How To Look After Combination Skin


Confused by your skin type? Combination skin can lean towards oily or dry depending on the area of the faceIt’s important to choose the best products for combination skin that take those differing conditions into consideration. To balance your skin and clear your complexion, follow our ultimate skincare routine for combination skin.

What is combination skin? 

Those with combination skin will suffer from both oiliness and dryness on various parts of the face.  

The most common area for oil overproduction is the T zone (the forehead, nose and chin), while the most common area for dry skin is the cheeks. 

Do I have combination skin? 

If you find yourself using blotting papers on your T zone throughout the day, but are experiencing an uncomfortable tight feeling on the cheeks, you have combination skin.  

To ensure your skin isn’t overly oily or dry, use products for combination skin that are hydrating, but still balance natural oil production. This balance will allow for consistency across the skin.

Skin care routine for combination skin

Looking for the perfect combination skin productsSukin’s signature collection works to naturally balance oil production, hydrate where needed and protect the skin from environmental damage.  

To keep skin in check, use the treatment phase in your combination skin care routine to cater to your skin’s needs. You can always switch things up depending on how your skin is feeling and keep the rest of your routine consistent. 

Step 1: Cleanse

Start by removing any makeup or grime with a combination skin cleanser, like theSukin Micellar Cleansing Water, then go in for a deeper cleanse with theSukin Cream Cleanser 

Whatever your skin type, a deep cleanse is essential for removing any bacteria that has built up throughout the day or night, unclogging pores and balancing oil production.  

This cleanser includes Rosehip, Avocado, Sesame and Wheat Germ Oils to nourish the skin, while Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter, Nettle and Horsetail leave the skin looking and feeling clean, making it the best combination skin cleanser. 

Step 2: Tone 

After cleansing, wet a cotton pad with the Sukin Hydrating Mist toner for combination skin and lightly sweep it over the oily areas of your face to purify the skin. 

It can also be used as a hydrating mist to give dry skin relief throughout the day. Spritz it over your makeup if skin begins to feel tight and irritated.

Step 3: Treat 

This step allows you to target your specific skin concerns thanks to potent, concentrated ingredients.  

Where your skin feels oily, leave the skin bare until the moisturising step. You’ll still be delivering moisture to the skin, but you won’t be overloading it with excess oil.  

Where the skin feels particularly dry and tight, choose a deeply hydrating oil, like the Sukin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil 

Step 4: Moisturise 

It’s important to moisturise the entire face, including any oily areas, to ensure skin isn’t deprived of the moisture it needs to function at its healthiest.  

When looking for a combination skin moisturiser, you want something lightweight but still hydrating. Sukin’s signature Facial Moisturiser will keep skin hydrated without clogging pores. 

Step 5: Masque 

Much like the treatment step in your new routine, multi-masking can be a great way or targeting multiple, specific skin concerns at once.  

On any oil and blemish prone areas, apply the Sukin Oil Balancing Anti-Pollution Facial Masque to extract and absorb any excess oil from within the pores. On dry patches, apply the Hydrating Face Mask to deliver moisture to flaky skin and restore brightness to a dull complexion.

If you are trying a product or ingredient for the first time, we always recommend a patch test first.
