How to tell if you have combination skin

While detecting your skin type can be easy if you have dry, flaky skin, if you happen to be on the combination skin side… the difference is not so clear cut, this is how to tell. 

Contrary to what you might believe, combination skin is not only a mix of oily and dry skin. In fact, there is a wide variety of varying levels of sebum production that is still considered combination skin. It comes down to the fact that your complexion is not uniform in terms of oil production, and you have to take different strategies as regards some areas of your skin

Oily areas are not always the t-zone, some people experience oilier skin on the chics, and you might even have comedonal acne, but your skin is still dry. 

To determine your skin type is to observe how much sebum your skin produces, to do so, follow these steps.

Step 1

Cleanse your face in the morning

Step 2

Check after 10 minutes, 1 hour and 3 hours, to see what your skin feels like.

Step 3

To address combination skin, you'll have to treat different areas of your face with specific products.  

Check if you have some dry spots, or if there are certain areas of your face that have become oilier or shinier. If after one hour, your skin is looking shiny, you are on the only side. If after 3 hours, you notice oilier and other dry patches, then you definitely have combination skin.
