10 Best Foundations For Combination Skin

When people complain they have oily or dry skin, I’m like ‘Helloo! I got the worst of both worlds and you don’t hear me complaining!’ Well, okay, I do complain, but what can I do when half of my face is shining like a disco ball and the rest is drier than the Sahara desert?!

And what’s even worse, finding the ideal foundation for combo skin it’s like Mission: Impossible! You need a foundation that will not increase the oil level of your already oily parts on your face, a.k.a the T-zone, and will not make you cheeks even drier – all the while leaving you with a porcelain skin. Is that too much to ask?!

Well, to help you (and myself) out, we have made some inquiries and found the best foundations for combination skin, mostly oil-free that will do wonders to your skin. Combination skin is the most common type of skin, and according to Dr. Justine Hextal, a Consultant Dermatologist, ‘due to the distribution of the oil-secreting (sebaceous) glands of our face, we all have combination skin to some degree.’ 

The world of beauty is constantly evolving, and now you can find makeup and foundation formulas that focus on more than one specific skin concern.
