4 Serums for Combination Skin
With areas of dryness and others with excess oil, combination skin can be tricky to care for. What’s more, finding the right skin care products for combination skin can be equally as challenging. Take serum for example. It makes sense why dry patches on your complexion could do well with a few coats of hydrating serum. But one might heed with caution before applying another layer of moisture or oil onto a T-Zone that’s battling excessive oil production. It makes sense, but trust us when we tell you that an oil-based serum might just be your combination skin’s ticket to a mattified complexion. Remember: Oily skin needs hydration in order to keep sebum production in check. Below we share four beauty-boosting serums that your combination skin seriously needs. You’re welcome.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
For visibly restored skin by morning, look no further than this replenishing nighttime formula of pure essential oils and distilled botanicals. The powerful elixir works with the skin’s natural nocturnal activity—when skin is most receptive to repair from aggressors—to help visibly restore skin by morning.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, $72 MSRP
Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang Purifying Oil Serum
This elixir of essential oils—ylang ylang, geranium, and rosemary among them—is specially formulated for the daily care of combination and oily skin types. The formula helps purify and balance the skin, as well as reduce excess sebum on the surface. The result is a complexion that looks and feels bright, clean, and shine free.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum
Oily and combination skin types are more prone to enlarged-looking pores compared to dry-skinned folks due to more frequent oil production. But fear not. Effaclar Serum, a pore minimizer with glycolic acid and LHA, can help tighten the appearance of large pores, smooth skin’s texture, and boost radiance.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum, $44.99 MSRP

Meet Vichy’s first formula to combat behavioral skin aging. This serum—formulated with LR2412 and LHA—helps refine skin’s texture, visibly reduce the appearance of pores, and illuminates a complexion for a more youthful-looking appearance.
