You will find too many oily and dry skin products on the market, but only a few for combination skin. But do you need a special one for this category? Yes, and you can prepare your own summer face packs for combination skin as the needs are different.

Combination skin has both oily and dry areas. If you have combination skin, your forehead, chin, and nose (T zone) will be oily, while the skin around your cheeks and mouth will dry (1).

Do you see why we say it needs extra care? Because you should take care of both oily and dry skin region needs. Especially during summers when you have to reduce oiliness and grease, you also need to care for your dry skin.

So, it is not easy to take care of it unless you have the best solution. The products you find on the market are only a few, and not everything works well on everyone. So, we suggest you try some home remedies to fulfill your combination skin needs. Keep reading to find out more!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it OK to apply Multani mitti every day?

No. Excessive use of Multani mitti may lead to over-exfoliation, damage the skin barrier, and cause irritation and redness. Limit it to once or twice a week.

Which time of the day is best for using a face pack?

If you use an exfoliating and clay face mask, it’s better to use it at night. It will clarify the skin, decongest the pores and promote better absorption of skin products, which may help your skin recover better.

Is aloe vera good for combination skin?

All skin types, including combination skin, can use aloe vera gel to maintain healthy, hydrated skin.
