The skin­care rou­tine for com­bi­na­tion skin con­tains in­gre­di­ents that treat a wide ar­range of skin con­cerns. “The con­cept of com­bi­na­tion skin is that you’re oily in some places and dry in oth­ers, Morn­ing Rou­tine Cleans­ing gel, Toner, Light­weight mois­turiser, zinc ox­ide sun­screen Night Rou­tine- Cleans­ing gel, Toner, An­tiox­i­dant serum, Light­weight mois­turiser, Zinc ox­ide Weekly Rou­tine- Ex­fo­li­ate Cleans­ing Gel: Use a cleanser to wash your face and re­move dirt and pol­lu­tants from your pores. Also make sure it’s a cleanser that doesn’t strip oil from your face. CLARINS ANTI-POL­LU­TION CLEANS­ING MILK COM­BI­NA­TION/OILY SKIN Toner: Ap­ply a toner af­ter cleans­ing to re­move any resid­ual dirt missed by your cleanser and to pre­pare your skin for mois­tur­izer. PIXI GLOW TONIC Mois­turiser: Mois­ture is key for glow­ing skin. While cleans­ing and ton­ing clears your skin, these two steps also re­move your skin’s nat­u­ral oils that keep it hy­drated. Mois­turiser re­stores this hy­dra­tion to the skin and cre­ates a sup­ple feel­ing. Even if your skin can be oily in

some ar­eas, mois­tur­izer is still nec­es­sary, as de­hy­drated skin can ac­tu­ally pro­duce more oil to com­pen­sate for the lack of mois­ture, thereby wors­en­ing the prob­lem. For ex­tremely oily ar­eas, ap­ply less mois­tur­izer or a lighter for­mula that is non-come­do­genic (mean­ing it won’t clog pores, it will usu­ally state this on the pack­ag­ing). DER­MA­LOG­ICA CALM WA­TER GEL Zinc Ox­ide Sun­screen: The sun­screen you use daily should be light­weight and non-come­do­genic — and it al­ways helps to have a lit­tle mat­ti­fy­ing in­gre­di­ents like sil­ica tech­nol­ogy that ab­sorb ex­cess se­bum.

Ex­fo­li­ate: Another step that can help with com­bi­na­tion skin, and all skin types for that mat­ter, is ex­fo­li­a­tion. Exfoliating re­moves dead skin cells that have built up on the sur­face of your skin. Us­ing ex­fo­liants on com­bi­na­tion skin helps pro­mote cell turnover and re­veal fresh, more bal­anced skin un­der­neath. Try a BHA / sal­i­cylic acid or an AHA / gly­colic acid exfoliating wash a few times a week to clear out your pores and en­cour­age a fresh com­plex­ion. MU­RAD AHA/BHA EXFOLIATING CLEANSER
