Combination skin means that your face has two or more different skin types at the same time. It is important to use the right skincare products to restore the balance, even if that means that you sometimes have to use different products for different areas of your skin.
AHA works well on a dry or dull-looking skin with sun damage. It removes dead skin cells and hydrates skin.
BHA is particularly effective on a normal or oily skin and/or a skin prone to blackheads and spots because BHA also penetrates the blocked pores. What is more, BHA prevents spots from getting infected.
If you have combination skin, your face has dry or flaky areas (cheeks) and often an oily T-zone (nose, chin and forehead). You may also have wrinkles, spots or skin that is susceptible to rosacea. Various factors contribute to a combination skin, including your genes.
Skincare products themselves can cause combination skin. Products with irritating ingredients can encourage sebum production in some areas (such as the T-zone) and dry out other parts of the face at the same time. A cream that is too rich can make your skin feel oily and block your pores. This makes it important to use products that are suitable for the different skin types on your face. Sometimes it is better to use different products on the different areas of your face. For example, you might choose light gels, liquids or sebum-absorbing products for the T-zone and lotions or creams for the drier areas.
