6 Best Products for Combination Skin
Having simultaneously oily and dry skin can be a challenge. You don’t want to clog your pores and cause acne, but you also don’t want to dry your skin out more. Finding the best products for combination skin is essential to achieving a glowing complexion.
Enhance the radiance of your skin with these top products. Find yourself something for every step of your routine.
1. BIALife Clarifying Foaming Cleanser
Everyone needs a solid cleanser in their routine. And if you have combination skin, you gotta be careful about cleansers that dry your skin out.
That’s why we’ve come up with the BIALife Clarifying Foaming Cleanser. This soap-free foam doesn’t exacerbate dryness in combination skin. Yet, its unique formula helps balance your skin’s pH, making it an effective cleanser for acne-prone skin.
It also contains both glycolic acid and salicylic acid to combat acne and remove dull skin cells.
2. BIALife Clarifying Pads
Do you suffer from acne-prone skin as well as combination skin? If so, the BIALife Clarifying Pads are a great option for you.
They contain glycolic acid and salicylic acid, which are ideal for treating both oily and dry skin.
The formula unclogs pores while removing dead skin cells. As a bonus, the natural botanicals provide much-needed hydration to dry areas while the witch hazel in these pads soothe and tone your skin.
3. Skinceuticals Physical Matte Defense SPF 50
No matter what, part of your morning routine should always include sunscreen. Sunburns are the leading cause of skin cancer, so it’s important to apply a layer of protection, even when it’s cloudy outside.
However, sunscreen can be challenging if you have combination skin. The oils in sunscreen can sometimes worsen oily areas. That is where this product from Skinceuticals comes in handy.
With the Physical Matte Defense, you get UVA and UVB protection with an oil-absorbing base.
Even in the most humid environments, it will keep its matte finish on combination skin. Apply it as a mousse and watch it dry to a powder—which doubles as a great base for makeup.
4. Neova Serious Glypeel Peel-Off Mask
Having combination skin often means you’re prone to acne. And one of the best ways to prevent acne is to exfoliate.
However, scrubbing your skin harshly can do more damage than good. The most efficient and safest way to exfoliate your skin is to use a chemical exfoliator.
With the Neova Serious Glypeel Peel-Off Mask, you can do just that. This exfoliating mask is ideal for all skin types, making it perfect for those who have both oily and dry skin.
It contains three key ingredients that make this an amazing product for combination skin:
- Aloe vera to soothe redness
- Hyaluronic acid to soften and hydrate
- Vitamins A and C to combat environmental damage
The vitamins included in this mask can also prevent dark spots and the discoloration of the skin.
Use this product one to two times each week, depending on how your skin tolerates the peel. Leave it on for approximately 15 to 20 minutes before peeling it off, starting with the outer edges.
After use, you’ll notice a refreshed skin barrier and a rejuvenated complexion.
5. BIALife Healing Moisturizer
There are a couple of myths out there that make people with combination skin think twice about moisturizing.
If you’re worried about developing acne on the oily parts of your skin because you moisturized it, don’t. The dry parts of your skin need nourishment to prevent redness, irritation, and flaky skin. And the oily parts can use moisturizing just as much.
In fact, moisturizing oily skin can even balance your skin, as the oiliness is often a result of your skin making up for dehydration.
Now that we busted that myth let us show you a great product for combination skin: BIALife Healing Moisturizer.
This non-comedogenic moisturizer hydrates your skin while simultaneously combating environmental damage thanks to ceramides in its formula. Stem cells improve the softness, firmness, and elasticity of the skin.
It also contains antioxidants, humectants, and emollients to soften the skin.
6. EltaMD Skin Recovery Light Moisturizer
While you do need a deep moisturizing cream for the dry parts of your face, you don’t want to ignore the oily parts. The EltaMD Skin Recovery Light Moisturizer is one of the best products for combination skin, particularly in those oily areas.
It uses AAComplex Technology to repair the skin’s natural barrier. The unique formula also helps calm and soothe irritated skin, preventing this condition in the future. The Skin Recovery Light Moisturizer also contains antioxidants to fight free radical damage.
If this doesn’t make this moisturizer amazing already, it’s also dye-free, fragrance-free, gluten-free, and paraben-free.
You can rest easy knowing that you’re putting the highest quality ingredients on your skin.
Give your skin the nourishment it needs without worrying about creating more oil.
