Fantastic Facial Creams, Part IV: Combination Skin

Jun 7 2007 - 10:25am

Welcome back to my five-part series on Fantastic Facial Creams [0] for your skin type. (What skin type do you have? Tell me here [0].) After conquering oily skin [0], dry skin [0], and sensitive skin [0], today we'll be looking at that kitchen-sink variety known as combination skin. The most common type of combo skin combines an oily T-Zone [0] with dry patches on the cheeks and sides of the eyes. The key is finding a cream that can comfort whatever combination you have, and these products should do the trick.

Sodium PCA Oil-Free Moisturizer by Kiehl's [1] ($17.50) is designed for normal-to-oily, oily, and very oily skin. I used this for about a two-year period and loved it. It's so light that it doesn't clog your pores, and it contains a humectant for those water dry [1] areas. But since it's made for oily skin, it's the perfect balance.

For two more fantastic facial creams for combination skin,

Organic Face Cream for Combination Skin by Patyka [2] ($49) is a lightweight lotion with a high concentration of tree tea oil and spearmint for toning. It has a really nice feel to it, since the spearmint has kind of a cooling effect. It is also formulated with witch hazel to help keep pores tight.

Creme 93 by YonKa [3] ($43) can be used in the morning and night to help fight excess shine in your T-Zone area and refresh your skin. It is a regulating cream made with ylang ylang and lime, which helps to even out the skin tone and revitalize the texture. I love this lotion because it makes my skin feel matte yet hydrated at the same time.
