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.

Noticeable reddening of the skin that occurs sporadically or regularly are visible vascular dilatations that are often triggered by sunlight, cold, spicy foods or stress. Only a dermatologist can tell if this is actually the inflammatory skin disease rosacea. A soothing, balancing skin care with anti-inflammatory active ingredients is always a good treatment option for redness.

Your skin is also dehydrated, i.e. lacking moisture. This means that the skin's own moisture cannot be retained well. For this reason, moisturising from the outside is especially important. We have taken this into account in our product recommendations below. 

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!


Did you know that not only the right skin care helps to keep redness at bay? Avoiding hot spices, alcohol or caffeine as much as possible also helps against reddened skin, because all these substances stimulate the blood flow in the fine vessels in the skin.

Too hot water when bathing or showering also dilates the blood vessels. Especially when washing your face, limit the water to lukewarm.


Unfortunately, there is no one miracle cure for dehydrated skin - it is rather a mix of several measures that moisturise your skin.

Besides skin care, these two are the most important: Drink a lot of water (yes, this also gets into the skin) and if the air in your room is dry (due to the heating in winter or the air conditioning in summer), make sure the air is well humidified, by using room humidifiers or simply a bowl of water on the radiator.

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.


2. preparation

An often underestimated skin care step: toners or sprays moisturise the skin and make it more receptive to subsequent care products.


Skin soothing essence to reduce redness, inflammation and irritation.


Balancing care spray for intensive moisture and skin soothing.


3. targeted active substances

Regardless of the number of products suggested here, regularity is more important than frequency. If you want to combine several serums or boosters that are rich in active ingredients, you can, for example, alternate between daily and evening use.
