Finding out you have combination skin can make it harder than you think to find reliable skincare products. You don’t always have irritation which makes it obvious to use sensitive skincare solutions. You don’t have the same degree of oiliness which would have you reaching for solutions which tackle sebum and pores. So what can you use?

Combination skin is much more common than you think. It is the skin type most people live with. We know this can be a tricky one to deal with when selecting skincare products, so we’ve picked the best products for combination skin.

If you have combination skin, it means you have oily skin and enlarged pores on your T-Zone, with dry or normal skin in other areas. Your skincare routine should address both without you worrying that dry patches will end up oily, or dull areas will suddenly feel flaky.

Skinsider has a range of fantastic Korean skincare products for combination skin, with brands you’ll soon grow to love.

How can K-Beauty help treat combination skin?

Treating combination skin can feel like a balancing act at the best of times. It helps to have a dedicated skincare routine in place. While we aren’t suggesting you follow the 10-step K-Beauty routine to the letter, leaning in on certain elements will help you cultivate combination skin in better condition.

Because combination skin typically leaves you with blips in how to treat skin, giving your skin an improved pH balance will be in your favour. K-beauty products use natural ingredients to help account for this balance, to relieve and hydrate. If you have combination skin and are starting to build a routine, start with a gentle cleanser like COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser. It handles impurities on oily and dry skin very well.

What K-Beauty brands are known for helping combination skin?

Some of our favourites for improving combination skin include:

 COSRX would be the highest-rated for combination skin products, especially their cleansers and creams.

Does Skinsider have vegan-friendly combination skincare products?

Most of our K-Beauty products are vegan, and many of the combination must-haves you see here are too. Some of the best-selling vegan products for combination skin include:

What combination skin products should I be using as a treat?

Being able to pamper yourself is such a lovely treat. If you prefer having an evening every few weeks to dedicate time to your skin, a sheet mask is a must.

By Wishtrend’s Enhancing Sheet Mask and Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask work great on combination skin, especially when you are experiencing irritation in problem areas.

If you feel like treating yourself today, have a look at our K-Beauty bundles.

I have combination skin with dull spots. What can I use to help?

You might have an oily t-zone, dryness on the cheeks, and dullness under the eyes which all need attention.

Get an essence to help improve cell turnover and give skin a chance to firm up and feel smoother. Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner should be in your basket if you need to revitalise dull patches.

What can I use if my T-Zone is really bad?

The T-zone has more sebaceous glands than anywhere else on the face, which is why it is so prone to let sebum/oil collect on the surface. If you want to tackle the T-Zone, Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser can condition pores without stripping.
