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.

Your skin's impurities are the direct result of said excess sebum: sebum residues clog the pores and provide the perfect breeding ground for acne bacteria. A mix of sebum-reducing, clarifying and anti-inflammatory active ingredients is therefore part of our product recommendations. See also the extra tip below!

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!

EXTRA TIP: IMPURITIES

Hair and hands have nothing to do with blemishes on the face, because they spread the acne bacteria. This is also called smear infection.

Towels (and pillowcases) are also true "superspreaders"; they should be changed accordingly frequently and regularly and washed at at least 60°.

Even pressing on pimples and blackheads is taboo - if you absolutely can't stop, the rule is: try twice at the most and cover your fingertips with tissues.

EXTRA TIP: MOISTURE

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.
