“These skin types already suffer from a damaged skin barrier and may be further damaged if the wrong ingredients are mixed and matched,” Dr. Zubritsk shares. “If you have any concerns, a dermatologist is able to help tailor your skin-care routine to your unique needs.” 

Yep, your dermatologist is your BFF — absolutely speak to them before you decide to delve into the world of cocktailing. “Less is more with these conditions, and I would not advise cocktailing unless your professional recommends something very gentle and supportive,” says New York City and Dallas-based aesthetician Joanna Czech.

Each skin routine and concern differs from person to person, but there are a few ingredients that are beneficial across the board. “Essential ingredients include adequate sunscreen protection (broad-spectrum SPF 30 or more) and hydration (hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and/or ceramides),” Robinson tells Allure.
