Face Creams suitable for Combination Skin
A combination skin type is generally characterised by having both dry and oily areas on the face. Most commonly, the t-zone tends to suffer from excess oil production and appear shiny, while the cheeks and other areas of the face feel dry or dehydrated.
It may seem overwhelming to find the best moisturiser for combination skin due to having conflicting needs. However, the range of face moisturisers for combination skin by Lancôme Australia considers all your needs to keep you feeling fresh, hydrated, and shine-free.
Day Cream for Combination Skin
The best face cream for combination skin is one that’s hydrating but non-greasy. When choosing a day cream for this skin type, it’s important to look for something lightweight and quick to absorb. This way, the skin drinks up the moisture it needs but isn’t left with a thick layer of product on the surface that can clog pores or cause excess oil production.
A product like Lancôme’s Hydra Zen Moisturizing Gel-Cream Day Cream is ideal for combination skin. This day cream addresses dryness and uneven texture by protecting against trans epidermal water loss yet has a lightweight texture that doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky, greasy, or shiny-looking.
Our Night Creams for Combination Skin combines premium ingredients
When choosing a night cream for combination skin, look for active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and aloe vera. On the flip side, it’s best to avoid creams with added oils like shea butter, coconut oil, and lanolin and these tend to exacerbate oil production and clog pores.
While combination skin types may suffer from excess oil production in certain areas, that doesn’t mean they don’t still need moisture and hydration. A night cream should help to improve the texture, balance and radiance of combination skin, keep things hydrated and even help with oil control. Skipping out on using a night cream can lead you dry areas to become dryer and potentially cause your oil-prone areas to overcompensate by producing even more oil.
Lancôme’s Absolue Soft Cream transforms from a thick hydrating cream, to a thin serum-like lotion that hydrates, balances and brightens without feeling heavy.
How to use moisturisers for Combination Skin
First, cleanse with a gentle, cream cleanser. Apply a toneracross the entire face, and follow by serums or oils in the dry areas. Apply your moisturiser for combination skin as the final step of your skincare routine (if in the morning, add an SPF to protect your skin from sun damage).
