I am not a big fan of toners because in the past I have found them to be too harsh and irritating on my skin. So far I have found one toner that did not irritate my skin but it didn’t feel very refreshing either…So I can only suggest toners that claim to be good for combination skin. After a bit of research, it seems like a toner that soothes the skin and doesn’t strip off all the oils from your skin might be the best kind of toner for combi skin. I think that if you’re prone to having a very oily t-zone and large pores it would be fine to use a pore minimising toner. However, if you’re more on the dry side I would stick to something that adds hydration to your skin.
I tend to use both essence/ampoule and a serum but I’m putting them under one category. If you do use both I would recommend that either would target oiliness and other would target dryness or have soothing properties. I have a few favourites in this category that I have found to work extremely well when my skin is very dry.
I would recommend a gel type moisturiser because some of the cream types that contain oils can be too heavy for a combi skin and even though they are very moisturising, they actually might end up clogging your pores and making your t-zone even oilier! If you are getting a cream type moisturiser, just make sure it doesn’t contain oils.
I think most masks and packs for fine with combination skin. In fact I like using them because I can change what kind of mask I want to use depending on my skin trouble at the time. Clay masks are very useful during summer and mask sheets are a savior during winter.
That’s it people. These a only the few items that I think are good for combination skin but obviously there is a lot more out there 😀
I think the key to finding a great skincare regimen for combi skin is to have a mix of products that treat either the dryness or the oiliness of your skin. It’s important not only use products that will end up drying your skin or accentuating the oiliness.Good Luck!! Have a great weekend!
