The Best Vitamin C Serum For Combination Skin Types

Is that a glazed doughnut over there? No, it is your glowing, bright skin! When it comes to your skin, you not only want it to look fresh and clear but also radiant. The right skincare routine can help you to achieve this…

You no longer have to have a dull, lifeless complexion. Bright skin is all in the products that you use, so pick them wisely.

But what if you have combination or normal skin, you may wonder? Then continue to read this article to find out exactly what will work for your skin to leave it looking youthful and flawless.

What Is Combination Skin?

Combination skin is where your skin seems like it has two different types of skin on the face. Usually, this is the combination of dry skin with oily.

You may find that your skin changes with the seasons and in the winter it can be drier and summer months oilier.

When thinking of the generalised view of combination skin, it is where you have dry, flaky skin on your face around your cheeks and then oil on your T-zone which is along your forehead and down past your nose to your chin.

How Can You Tell If You Have Combination Skin?

The most common skin type is combination skin. But how can you tell if that is your skin type? Here are a few things to look out for in your own skin:

Do You Notice Larger Pores?

Suffering from oily skin you may notice that you can visibly see the pores on your skin. This is because the sebaceous glands under the skin produce excess sebum, and will block your pores with dirt and dead skin, which leads to oil building up and enlarging your pores.

Do You Look Shiny?

Do you feel like your skin is dry, but you are constantly dealing with it on the surface of your skin? This is due to having combination skin, as you will always suffer from excess oil in at least one area of your skin. For the majority of people, you will notice it more across your T-zone.

Do You Get A Combination Of Blackheads And Whiteheads?

When you have oil on your skin it can clog your pores and trap dirt and dead skin cells within your pores.

When this clog is exposed to the air, this is what causes blackheads and vice versa when the clog is closed this is when a white head/ spot will appear.  

Do You Suffer With Dry Patches And Breakouts?

 If you notice dry skin as well as oil and acne then this is an indicator that you do indeed have combination skin. This is because with combination skin, dry and oily skin co-exist together and when your skin is dry, your sebaceous glands tend to overproduce oil.

This is your skin's way of trying to hydrate your skin which results in oily and greasy skin, most commonly on your T-Zone but the rest of your skin will remain dry and flakey.
