The 411 on Combination Skin

The 411 on Combination Skin

There is so much talk about the skin types and what each skin type needs, and what to avoid. They are all pretty much self-explanatory, except for one, COMBINATION SKIN! If you ever find yourself thinking, what exactly is combination skin and how on earth am I supposed to manage it, then today is your lucky day. I am here to give you the low down on the Trickiest skin type of them all, and how to get your very best skin if it is the skin type that you happen to have. 


Combination skin can be tricky because you're dealing with different needs in different areas. The oily parts, like the T-zone, are more prone to breakouts, blackheads, clogged pores, and whiteheads, while the dry areas, like the cheeks, might feel tight and flaky, and can be prone to more redness and looking dull. 


This uber tricky skin type requires a really balanced approach that addresses both the oily and dry, dull areas. 


Firstly step in managing combination skin is maintaining a few basic lifestyle factors, these include;

  • Maintaining adequate hydration daily - 3 litres of water per day
  • Easting a balanced diet - avoid too many processed foods & eat the rainbow
  • Get healthy fats into your daily diet - nuts, seeds & avocados will really benefit your skin!
  • A lightweight, non-greasy sunscreen - the lightweight sunscreens that are gel-based or light fluids suit your skin best
  • The right topicals - A vitamin C serum with hyaluronic acid is the best kind of serum for your combination skin. 


Now if you’re the owner of a combination skin type complexion, it can be easy to end up with a whole host of different topical products that you may not even use. Luckily, there are actually some specific vitamins & herbs that can really help with balancing combination skin.


Niacin (Vitamin B3)

Niacin helps balance oil production, improves the skin barrier, and has anti-inflammatory properties.


Vitamin C

Vitamin C promotes collagen production and has antioxidant properties that help heal your skin, giving you brighter, clearer skin.


Salicylic Acid Derived from Willow Bark

This helps regulate oil production, speed up skin cell turnover, and exfoliate and unclog pores, making it SUPER beneficial for oily areas.


White Tea Extract

White tea is of huge benefit to combination skin as it provides antioxidant protection, helps to reduce inflammation, and promotes collagen production. These all help to maintain skin health and balance, while also minimizing signs of aging and improving overall complexion.



Probiotics are phenomenal for combination skin as they help to balance oil production, reduce inflammation, and strengthen the skin barrier, resulting in a more even and healthy complexion.


One of the most effective ways to maintain a great complexion when you have combination skin is to address the skin from within. As the natural herbs and vitamins are working internally, it helps to reduce your need for a large range of topical products to address the varying concerns that combination skin presents. That is part of why my Perfect Skin Kit has been so effective at helping so many people across the globe.
