Combination Skin Beauties: Meet Your New Root Summer Skin Type Must-Haves

by Haylee Westendorf on July 12, 2018

Combination Skin Summer Must-Haves

Does is seem like your skin has a split personality? If you’ve got Combination skin type, you know what I’m talking about! Combination skin is the most popular skin type, but it shows differently across individuals. Basically, combo skin means you’ve got dry skin in some places, and oily skin in others. Often, the T-zone gives combo skin beauties the most trouble - nose, forehead and chin. Across the cheeks you may find drier, almost flakey skin.

Correcting your combination skin is all about BALANCE. Certain areas will require different care, and your products should be lightweight, mild, and hydrating! Don’t forget a good exfoliation works wonders on restoring balance. Whether you have combination skin, looking to battle acne and minimize pores, reduce signs of aging, fight under eye circles and dullness, or color correct dark spots and redness, we’ve got the perfect skincare product for you.

As part of our Summer Skin Type Must-Have blog series, we’ve taken your Combo Skin Type + Your Skincare Concern and paired it with your NEW FAVORITE Root skincare summer must-have. Together we can balance out your troublesome combo skin!


Oily + Aging

Your New FAV: Pomegranate Antioxidant Cleanser

Combo Skin + AntiAging

This is your anti-aging secret weapon. The Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Cleanser works to increase collagen production and fight against the daily toxins in our environment, including the sun! This highly concentrated formula washes away dirt and oil while softening and brightening skin. Pomegranate Extract holds a high level of Vitamin C and antioxidants that will naturally increase the elastin and reduce fine lines. Organic Papaya Fruit Extract has natural enzymes that remove impurities and dead skin cells to expose a RADIANT complexion. Because it’s a super lightweight, yet highly concentrated formula, it’s perfect for combination skin to use all over the face to reduce oil product in certain areas and increase in others.

Use:  Apply a pea-sized amount of cleanser to damp face. Massage into skin all over. Follow with Root Sweet Orange Sugar Cookie Body Polish and Root Fresh Lavender Toner.


Oily + Dark Under Eye Circles & Dullness

Your New FAV: Sweet Orange Sugar Cookie Body Polish

Combo Skin + Dark Circles and Redness

First of all, Root Orange Sugar Cookie Body Polish smells (and tastes…) AMAZING. Imagine buffing away dead skin cells with a SUGAR COOKIE. That’s exactly what this is… #heaven! Vitamin E from Sunflower regenerates new skin cells after cane sugar strips away the dead ones. Your skin will be glowing after this polish, perfect for combating dark circles and overall dullness in your skin. Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil is known to increase your skin’s ability to absorb Vitamin C, boost collagen production and increase blood flow, all of which are essential to brightening skin. Use all over your combination skin.

Use: Wet your skin and massage into your skin in a circular upward motion. Also use on hands, feet, body and lips! Rinse. Use 2-3x per week. Follow with Root Fresh Lavender Toner.


Oily + Acne & Pore Minimization

Your New FAV: Fresh Lavender Toner

Combo Skin + Acne & Pore Minimization

Root Fresh Lavender Toner is a GO-TO for those with combo skin looking to defeat acne and shrink pores. This toner is also perfect for sensitive, irritated skin. Vegetable glycerin and witch hazel water work to soothe, condition and relax. Organic Aloe Juice is nature’s greatest moisturizer, so while Organic Lavender Flower Extract detoxes and calms, your skin is treated with ultra-hydrating antioxidants! This will be especially awesome for that troublesome T-zone.

Use: Shake before use. Apply with cotton ball all over freshly washed face and neck both morning and night. Follow with Root Fresh Lavender Moisturizer.


Oily + Color Correction of Dark Spots or Redness

Your New FAV: Fresh Lavender Moisturizer

Combo Skin + Dark Spots and Redness

Are your cheeks left dry and flakey, while your nose and chin constantly seep excess oil? Combination skin can be so frustrating! Root Fresh Lavender Moisturizer works with Red Raspberry Seed Oil to both soften and hydrate, while providing a natural SPF that balances oil production. Talk about double duty! Not looking for as much moisture across your T-Zone? Apply generously to cheeks and neck, while using a lighter application across chin, nose and forehead. Again, witch hazel water will work to tone, so don’t be afraid of a light application across those troublesome areas. Soothe, tone, treat, restore - this moisturizer truly does it all.  

Use: Apply 1-2 pumps all over freshly faced face and neck, both morning and night. Try Root with Pomegranate Antioxidant Cleanser first!


These Root Summer Skin Type Must-Haves will make both parts of your combination skin happy. Stay away from harsh, drying products, and remember - it’s all about balance. The same product can moisturize and tone at the same time! When you’re in the search for your new summer skincare routine, always check ingredients and know that all skin care products are not created equal. At Root, our products are Natural and Organic and full of skin-loving ingredients. All my combination skin beauties, YOU’VE GOT THIS!

The Fresh Lavendar moisturizer seems like a no brainer for me. I am constantly struggling with inconsistency of dryness on my cheeks and then oil in my tzone.
