Combination skin is actually very common in most people because the center of your face naturally has more oil glands, thus you’re more likely to have clogged pores in the T-Zone. It’s also very likely that some areas of your face (under the eyes, and around the nose) are more sensitive.
Best Cleansers for Combination Skin
More Information About the Products:
#1: Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam
Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam is a unique cleanser because of it’s foam texture. The foam like texture removes excessive oil and dirt particles, without drying out the skin. It strengths the natural barrier function of the skin due to it’s pH level of 5.5.
As a bonus, it contains panthenol, which encourages the regeneration of irritated and inflamed skin.
Sebamed is an interesting brand because all of their products are developed with the skin barrier in mind. The skin barrier is the naturally acidic layer of skin known as the ‘acid mantle’.
The acid mantle has a pH level that is slightly acidic. With this in mind, German doctor Heinz Maurer developed all of his products around the same pH level. The idea is that by developing products with the same pH level as the skin barrier, it won’t damage or irritate the skin.
#2: Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser
Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser is a wonderful cleanser because it gently removes excess skin oils without over drying the skin.
It is formulated to work on eczema, psoriasis, itchyosis and even winter itch. Additionally, it is suitable for all skin types – and does not cause breakouts.
Vanicream was started in 1975 after it was suggested to Ed Mansfield & Conrad Thompson, by dermatologists, that they start a company to make better products than were commercially available for people with sensitive skin.
Their mission was to develop products without chemicals that were considered by dermatologists as ‘undesirable’, such as: fragrance, lanolin, parabens and formaldehyde.
Their products only contain the highest quality ingredients, and are now distributed throughout the USA and internationally.
