More Information for Combination Skin Type

Caring for combination skin can be confusing. With an oily t-zone (forehead, nose, and occasionally, the chin) and dry cheeks, those with combination skin often resort to implementation of two separate skin care routines for their face. Not only is this time intensive, it is also expensive. To streamline the skin care routine for combination skin, Lexli recommends using products that can improve the overall condition of the skin with an emphasis on achieving proper hydration levels.

The Lexli skin care routine for combination skin includes the following key elements:

  • Cleanse
    Use of a gentle daily cleanser that removes dirt, impurities and excess oil while preserving the skin’s acid mantle.

  • Exfoliate
    Use of a chemical exfoliator to slough away dead, dry skin and improve texture while keeping pores clear.

  • Treat Dry Areas
    Application of moisture-rich serums to those areas of the face that experience dryness.

  • Moisturize
    Use of a lightweight moisturizer during the day and a richer formulation in the evening.

  • Protect
    Daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect skin from UV damage.

  • Maintain Hydration
    Throughout the day, apply a gentle toner to keep skin hydrated and comfortable while minimizing inflammation.

Most individuals with combination skin do well with use of a lightweight daytime moisturizer that includes SPF and a richer nighttime moisturizer. Individuals who have significant oiliness in the t-zone will want to use Lexli Daytime Moisturizer for Oily Skin in the t-zone morning and evening.

Finally, it’s important to recognize that some individuals who believe they have combination skin actually have skin that becomes oilier in the warmer, humid climate of summer and drier when temperatures drop in the winter. In such cases, it is often more appropriate to switch between an oily and dry skin care routine rather than implement the combination skin care routine outlined here.
