What is the best combination skin face wash?
Combination skin is a common skin type but many men find it difficult to find the right product to treat skin which is both dry and oily.
Washing combination skin with the wrong face wash can cause problems. Dry skin may become more severe and oil production can be increased, leading to spots and even whiteheads.
With combination skin, the oily parts of skin is most commonly found on the t-zone area (the area across the forehead and down the nose, to the chin area).
How to choose the best face wash for combination skin.
When considering a face wash for combination skin, there are a few things to bear in mind. Firstly, you’ll need to think about which areas of your skin need the most attention for you.
For example, if you are encountering more problems with oily skin and are prone to getting spots, blackheads and whiteheads, then you’ll require a face wash that is better at removing excess oils. On the other hand, if your main problem with combination skin is dryness, or your skin outside of the oily areas is sensitive, your best bet is to find a face wash with a mild formula.
Secondly, with combination skin, it’s important to consider what time of year it is. In the summer you may require a cleanser or a face wash that is better at removing excess oils as this would likely increase in the warmer months. Whereas in the colder, winter months, you might require a cleanser that is better at hydrating the skin.
