In order to have a top shape skin a good skin care routine is absolutely crucial. There are many factors that influence the type of products you need to use. And it is also good to know in which order to use them. From this entry you can find out the right face care routine for the combination skin type.
We are talking about combination skin when there are 2 or more skin types on the face. The most common combination is an oily skin in the T-zone and dry parts on the cheeks. The goal of the routine for this skin type is to normalize the function of the sebaceous glands in the oily T-zone and set back the hydration on the cheeks. If wrinkles have appeared around the eyes it is probably due to the lack of fat in that area which has to be treated with special eye care cosmetics.
The daily routine consists in morning and evening programs which are similar, but they differ in the types of the cosmetics.
Daily Skin Care Routine for Combination Skin:
Type of the cosmetic: cleanser
The cleanser type has to be picked according to how oily the skin is in the T-zone.

Type of cosmetic: eye care lotion/gel
Combination skin is typical both for the young and the old. People in their 20s and 30s don’t necessarily have to use eye care products because the skin around the eyes is still taut. In the case of edema eye care gel is recommended to keep in check the excess water. Over the age of 35 when wrinkles have appeared the best solution is eye care lotion for daytime.
