What Is Combination Skin?

As the name suggests, combination skin is a combination of skin types. You’ll likely have oily areas (typically your T-zone, nose and chin) and normal to dry skin on your cheeks and hairline.

Signs You Have Combination Skin

  • Oily T-zone, nose and chin
  • Normal to dry skin elsewhere, particularly on cheeks and hairline
  • Mild breakouts on forehead, nose and chin
  • Larger pores on chin, nose and forehead
  • Patchy-looking makeup

What Causes Combination Skin?

The oilier areas are caused by overactive oil glands in your T-zone. More often than not, it’s a genetic thing.

However, sometimes the products you use can make the problem areas worse. So, it’s crucial to apply the correct products for combination skin to enhance your complexion and keep it looking healthy.

Best Skincare Routine for Combination Skin

Trust us, using the best products for combination skin is the only way to manage both those dry and greasier areas. Products that are targeted at very oily skin can cause your dry areas to worsen – and vice versa – intensely moisturizing products that target dry patches can cause oily areas to get even oilier!

Follow this step-by-step skincare routine for combination skin to ensure all areas of concern receive the best possible care, attention and ingredients to help maintain soft, supple and healthy-looking skin.

Step 1 – Cleanse

Kickstart your routine with the Revolution Skincare Retinol Cream Cleanser for combination skin. Renowned for its ability to decongest pores, this Retinol-powered formula works to unclog, deeply cleanse and instantly refresh, unleashing anti-ageing properties to promote youthful-looking skin.

Not only does it help rid skin of dirt and impurities, but the creamy consistency nourishes and soothes redness and sensitivity.

Step 2 – Tone

Combination skin often craves something different each day. Some days might be oilier/drier than others, so why settle for just one toner? Choose the best toner for your combination skin based on how your skin feels that day.

With the Revolution Skincare Totally Tonics Collection, you can tailor your toning routine according to how oily or dry your skin feels.

  • The hydrating Cica Tonic is great for skin that feels dry and irritated, thanks to its super soothing and calming formulation.
  • Our Caffeine Tonic helps to energise tired-looking skin, targeting pores and uneven skin tone for an overall improved appearance.
  • On days with more congestion, use the Niacinamide Tonic to help banish those blemishes and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores.

Step 3 – Serum

Combination skin can often look dull and lacklustre, particularly in the drier areas. Apply the Revolution Skincare Gold Elixir as your serum to help smooth away any dry patches and keep skin nourished. Subtle golden flecks also help to boost radiance.

Perfect for day and night, this serum for combination skin can be mixed with foundation for an even more radiant, dewy finish.

Step 4 – Eye Cream

If dry patches appear around the eyes, try the Revolution Skincare Nourishing Boost Avocado Eye Cream. This formula, which is enriched with Avocado, absorbs quickly into the skin to provide that all important moisture boost dry patches crave.

Rich in Shea Butter, this eye cream helps to soften, hydrate and condition the skin, preventing dry and flaky under eyes.

Step 5 – Moisturise

Though some areas might be oilier than others, it’s important to make sure your skin receives the moisture it needs to look and feel soft, supple and healthy. That’s why you need a targeted moisturiser for combination skin.

Try the Revolution Skincare Mattify Boost moisturiser, which is formulated with both Niacinamide to tackle blemishes and Rosemary Extract to help calm stressed-out skin. The mattifying finish is perfect for those oilier days, without skimping on the hydration!

Extra Step – Mask

Every now and then, skin will benefit from a few additional steps in your routine. Face masks are not only ideal for pamper nights, but they’re also great for delivering a boost of ingredients that target problem areas.

Formulated with Acai Berry Extract, Charcoal and Kombucha, the Revolution Skincare Biodegradable Combination Skin Sheet Mask targets the main trio of combination skin concerns: excess oil, blemishes and dryness.

Skin is left feeling detoxified, soothed and well hydrated, with the excess oils from that T-zone absorbed and dry patches moisturised.
