What should I do for my mixed skin?


Mixed skin is the most common skin type. It is a mixture of two or more skin types. Many women may think they have oily skin when their skin type is combination. Unless your skin is completely oily without any parts of normal or dry skin, your skin is considered combination skin.

The main problem with combination skin

With combination skin, the T-zone, i.e., forehead, nose, and chin, tends to glow, and large pores are usually visible on the nose. Our dermatological explanation: these parts of your face contain more sebaceous glands than other parts, which are generally dry. Treating both oily and dry areas of the skin, without causing irritation, is a real challenge for facial care.

Combination Skin Gesture n°1: Avoid aggressive cleansers

To effectively cleanse your face, opt for a gentle cleanser as dirt and excess sebum accumulate throughout the day. For combination skin, choose a cleanser that mattifies the T-zone without over-drying other areas. Diadermine's Soothing Cleansing Foam from the Essentiel Bio range is enriched with prebiotics to gently cleanse and soothe your skin while maintaining its natural balance.

Combination Skin Gesture n°2: Use a day cream capable of moisturizing and mattifying according to the zones

For combination skin, finding a cream that addresses both oily T-zone and dry cheeks can be challenging. Using two different products can complicate your routine. To simplify, Diadermine offers a solution with our PH7 Mattifying Day Care. This treatment hydrates and mattifies for a clear complexion. Its formula combines vitamin E, pro-vitamin B5, and witch hazel extract to tighten pores and purify the skin gently. Sebum-regulating agents maintain healthy moisture levels and prevent clogged pores and blemishes. Apply every morning to cleansed face and neck, gently massaging. This cream also serves as an excellent makeup base.

Combination Skin Gesture n°3: Complete your beauty routine with Diadermine strips

Introducing Diadermine's Purifying Strips: Applied like patches, they target specific areas of the face to purify and even out the skin. Our Charcoal Strips capture impurities and excess sebum, eliminating blackheads for clearer, softer skin. For a quick and effective cleanse of the T-zone—forehead, nose, and chin—try our Purifying Strips. These patches adhere to impurities upon contact, unclogging pores and leaving skin immediately purified and tightened.

Combination Skin Gesture n°4: Exfoliate

One last tip: exfoliation is essential for combination skin. So get into the habit of this gesture to clear clogged pores of the skin, and remove dead cells from the dry parts of your face.
