Things to know about your skin:

Combination skin combines opposing characteristics and actually does everything right - at least from the body's point of view. The exposed T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) is protected from wind and weather by the protective oil film, the rest of the skin, also called the U-zone, has fewer sebaceous glands and is normal to dry. The oily part of the skin also has a coarse-pored and thicker texture in combination skin. Typical is the slight shine caused by excessive sebum production in this part of the face.

Pigment spots (also called hyperpigmentation) occur on the skin when pigment cells accumulate in one place. This increased pigmentation then leads to spots. The most common trigger is excessive UV radiation, as the pigment cells are produced as a protective reaction against sun stress. However, other skin stresses can also lead to pigmentation spots, for example hormonal fluctuations or acne.

As your skin is also sensitive, you should avoid irritating ingredients or treatments. We therefore avoid certain active ingredients in our product recommendations and also advise you against mechanical peels.

Care recommendations and tips:

Cleanse your combination skin in the morning and evening and use only mild cleansing products. Dry areas on the cheeks will not dry out further and the often oily T-zone will not be stimulated to produce even more oil. Moisturise your skin! Apply a slightly richer care product to the drier U-zone (cheeks and neck below the chin).

Apply moisturisers, aqueous serums or fluids all over your face after cleansing. A light balm, fluid or cream-gel with plant oils and ceramides will strengthen your skin barrier. If you want to give your cheeks an extra dose of lipids, mix a few drops of oil into your skincare or use a richer product. Make sure you use UV protection!

EXTRA TIP: HYPERPIGMENTATION

To diminish pigmentation spots, one thing above all helps: boosting the skin's own renewal - because the faster it renews itself, the less opportunity the pigments have to gather. You should therefore incorporate gentle but regular exfoliation with fruit acids or enzymes, for example with our HYDROPEEL, into your skin care routine. Vitamin C and liquorice extract also help to dissolve the pigment accumulations.

Very important: Do not neglect UV protection during the day. This is because UV radiation boosts melanin production - including the uneven production that shows up in the form of pigment spots.

EXTRA TIP: SENSITIVITY

Sensitive skin should be treated like a raw egg. By this we mean: After washing, do not rub dry with hard terry cloth, but pat dry with a soft towel.

And also cream should not be massaged in too much, but better to first distribute in the hands and then gently pat into the skin with the palms.

These HighDroxy products fit the bill:

1. face cleansing

Here, less is often more. Too much or frequent cleansing unnecessarily stresses the skin barrier and can worsen your skin's appearance in the long run. If we recommend several products at this point, you do not have to use them all together. You can find out more about the special features and the right combination on the product pages.

Particularly mild cleanser that thoroughly cleanses the skin without drying it out.
