Which Moisturizer for Combination Skin Should I Use?

Which Moisturizer for Combination Skin Should I Use?

As the name suggests, combination skin is a mixture of two types of skin. The T-zone is characterized by excessive sebum production, while the rest of the face tends to be drier. With an unstable balance, this type of skin can be difficult to manage. However, there are perfectly adapted moisturizer for combination skin. We’ll tell you all about it.

Characteristics of Combination Skin.

Unlike oily skin, combination skin is oily only in the T-zone (chin, nose and forehead), but is dry in the cheeks and temples. This type of skin tends to produce excess sebum in the middle part of the face, leading to blackheads and enlarged pores. Conversely, sebum production is insufficient on the other parts of the face. Indeed, the cheeks and temples may occasionally feel tight, as they are rather dry.

Genetic, hormonal or internal factors can be at the origin of combination skin. In addition, some external factors also come into play:

  • Poor diet;

  • Tobacco;

  • Stress;

  • Contraceptive methods;

  • Pollution.

Which Is the Best Moisturizer for Combo Skin?

To recreate a skin balance, choose gentle, non-aggressive, drying and only the best product(s) for combination skin. In the morning and evening, remember to cleanse your skin with a makeup remover and a gentle cleanser to eliminate sebum and impurities. As for the best cream for combination skin, choose a mattifying and astringent cream: it will limit shine on the T-zone and slow down the development of imperfections. Even if your skin is oily on the T-zone, it is important to moisturize it daily. You should opt for products with a light and fluid texture.

For example, as a moisturizer for combination skin, we recommend our nourishing face cream. This care contains the following ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic acid: Resulting from the fermentation of wheat, this active ingredient has moisturizing and toning properties. Thus, it hydrates the skin and makes it supple.

  • Shea butter: Thanks to its nourishing and soothing properties, this ingredient protects the skin against external aggressions and skin dryness. Containing unsaponifiable matter and triglycerides, it has repairing virtues.

  • Squalane: Rapidly penetrating the epidermis, it maintains the skin's hydration and reduces feelings of tightness.

  • Plum oil: This active ingredient has softening properties.

This cream with hyaluronic acid is or best product for combination skin. It will thus make it possible to nourish, hydrate and alleviate the skin. It will also reinforce the protective barrier of the epidermis, reduce the feelings of tightness and restore flexibility to the skin.

Contra-Indications of Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer.

The nourishing face cream is contraindicated to the persons allergic to this active ingredient. In case of allergy, it could cause chronic, acute or skin inflammation, as well as itching. In addition, redness, edema, hematoma or granuloma may appear.
