Is your T-zone oily by the rest of your face dry? Then you just might have combination skin! And that means that caring for your complexion could very well prove pretty tricky. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are a few hacks you can add to your skin care routine to help make life with combo skin a little easier. Commit the following seven tips to memory!

Combination Skin Hack #1: Cleanse the Right Way

When it comes to combination skin, it’s all about balance. You want to make sure you’re mattifying your oily T-zone without over-drying your cheeks. The L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Foaming Gel Cleanser helps lift dirt and impurities without over-drying skin.

Combination Skin Hack #2: Tone Like a Pro

A toner can help sweep away any remaining impurities that are left on the surface of your skin post-cleansing. But according to the American Academy of Dermatology, alcohol can irritate dry skin, so be sure to choose an alcohol-free toner, like the L’Oréal Paris HydraFresh Toner. The gentle, non-drying formula helps sweep away dull, tired skin and protect against moisture loss. Apply it with a cotton ball morning and night after cleansing.

Combination Skin Hack #3: Exfoliate Weekly

Exfoliation is the process of sloughing off dead skin cells from the surface of your skin—these dead cells can buildup, leaving your complexion looking dull. There’s no definitive number of times you should exfoliate every week—some people can benefit from this step daily, while others can only handle once or twice a week. Pay attention to how your skin responds to determine what works best for you, and try the L’Oréal Paris Go 360° Clean Deep Facial Cleanser, an oil-free scrub formulated with natural apricot beads to help gently exfoliate dull, dead skin cells. To use, pop out the included Scrublet™, dampen the surface and pour a little bit of the scrub on, cleanse your skin, and pop the Scrublet™ back in.

Combination Skin Hack #4: Moisturize Meticulously

Just because parts of your face are oily doesn’t mean you should skip out on the moisturizer all together. You just have to find the right one for your combination skin! The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin is oil-free, non-greasy, and formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe water to help provide long-lasting hydration. It’s also got a matte finish, which can help prevent your oily T-zone from looking overly shiny.

Combination Skin Hack #5: Get in on the Multi-Masking Trend

Multi-masking is a popular skin care trend that involves applying different masks to different areas of your face—at the same time. That can be particularly useful if you have combination skin! The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten Treatment Mask addresses the look of dull skin, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Purify & Mattify Treatment Mask addresses the look of oily skin, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refining Treatment Mask addresses the look of rough skin. Each mask should be applied in an even layer to clean dry skin, left on for 10-15 minutes, then rinsed off. Use three times a week for best results.

Combination Skin Hack #6: Start Your Makeup Routine with Primer

Without primer, applying makeup to combination skin can be a bit of a gamble. Oily areas and dry patches could leave your foundation looking uneven. The L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets™ Professional Magic Perfecting Base has a silky, lightweight formula that glides onto skin, helping to smooth lines, hide pores, and banish imperfections. Apply it after moisturizing to your entire face or just to your T-zone for a matte result.

Combination Skin Hack #7: Blot Away Midday Greasy

Midday oiliness have you feeling less than gorgeous? Girl, we feel you! That’s why we suggest tossing a pack of blotting papers in your purse. Blotting sheets can help sop up excess grease. Score!
