The key to keeping combination skin happy is finding a balance between the greasier sections and delivering moisture to dryer areas. Avoid heavy products that clog pores, are comedogenic and include fragrance. Our Combination Skin- Balance Routine helps control excess oil due to sebum over-production while providing lightweight moisture for healthy skin that is soft and supple.
What is Combination Skin? Combination skin is when some areas of your face is oily, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin) while it is dry in others.

Step 1: Antimicrobial Nourishing Cleanser
Lipid-rich cream cleanser, i DEW, gently removes excess sebum and impurities as it locks in hydration and restores moisture. Formulated with soothing aloe, calendula and cucumber to restore skin’s equilibrium. Packed with antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids that balance skin’s moisture barrier, regenerate skin cells and clear acne-causing bacteria. Massage a small amount on damp skin, using a consistent sweeping motion. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Step 2: Clarifying Mask
Skin-conditioning kaolin mask is perfect for oily, congested and combination skin with its ability to absorb excess oil and debris from skin’s surface and keep blemishes at bay, without stripping skin of its natural oils. Enzymes, salicylic acid and rich botanicals provide a gentle exfoliation, revealing fresh glowing skin. Apply a thin layer of mask over face and neck, leaving for 10-15 minutes. As it dries, remove with lukewarm water. Use 1-2 times a week, depending on skin type.
Step 3: Hydrating Mist
Hydrate and restore balance with our wild pansy stabalizing facial mist, infused with natural astringents, Grapefruit, Lemongrass, and radiance-enhancing botanicals. Mist directly to face or apply with cotton pad to clean skin to refresh, renew and increase effectiveness of other skincare products.
Step 4: Resurfacing Serum (pm)
A potent blend of glycolic, malic and salicylic acid that gently exfoliates dead skin cells and encourages cell turnover to improve uneven tone and texture, for an ultimate glow without harsh reactions. Apply one or two pumps of serum to face, avoiding the eye area. Mild stinging may occur.
Precautions: We recommend using once or twice a week and gradually increase as your skin adjusts to its effects. Glycolic acid concentration is 9.75% and not recommended for sensitive skin. Recommended for use at night.
Step 5: Water-based Gel Moisturizer
Skin tip: This versatile product can be used as a moisturizer, as a spot treatment (acne) or a masking treatment (oily).
Combination skin will love this lightweight gel that leaves skin silky and soft without the tacky or oily finish. Vitamins C and A, salicylic acid and plant extracts work together to help balance and calm irritation, particularly acne-prone skin, and boost skin’s tone and radiance.
Moisture-rich litchi and kiwi offer anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties that control excess sebum production and balance skin’s natural pH. Apply a small amount to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Absorbs quickly.
