Beauty Advice & Tips
Our advice to reveal the beauty of combination skin
An ideal routine for combination skin
Combination skin requires a tailored programme.
Our solution: the Aquabella® beauty routine!
- Step 1: Cleanse your skin deep down every day with the Micro-Exfoliating Purifying Gel. Enriched with particles of Silica and natural blue Micro-beads, it gently removes impurities, excess sebum and dead skin cells
- Step 2: Then apply the Beauty-Revealing Smoothing Essence-Lotion. Its slightly textured formula cloaks the face in a moisturising veil and visibly tightens the pores.
- Step 3: Complete the ritual with the Beauty-Revealing Moisturising Emulsion Its light texture moisturises dry areas while mattifying oily zones. Leaving skin looking smoother, clearer and more radiant.
Tips: always apply your skincare gently to avoid stimulating the sebaceous glands and creating a rebound effect.
From what age can you use Aquabella®?
Aquabella® can be used at any age, by both women and men. It is particularly suitable for young people under the age of 25 whose main need is moisturising with a natural skin-beautifying action.
Can you use Aquabella® as a short-term programme?
We recommend that people with naturally combination skin use Aquabella® all year round. Moreover, certain factors may encourage “temporary” combination skin, for example, premenstrual times, a change of climate or even a period of stress. In this case, application of Aquabella® for shorter periods is perfectly suitable.
Which face mask can I use to complement this product?
Once or twice a week, we recommend applying two face masks:
- On the T-zone, apply the Gentle Purifying Mask. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse.
- On the other areas of the face, apply the Crème fraîche® de beauté 48-Hour Moisture SOS Rescue Mask. Leave on for 10 minutes and then rub into the skin or remove all traces of excess product.
In winter, the combination skin on my cheeks feels tight!
Intense cold can result in different signs of damage on the skin (dryness, tightness, discomfort, etc.), even affecting combination skin.
As soon as the first signs appear, mix a few drops of Huile Prodigieuse® in the palm of your hand with the Aquabella® Moisturising Emulsion, preferably at night before going to bed, to nourish and repair the areas that need it.
A moisturising range with tailored effectiveness for combination skin

How can you recognise combination skin?
Combination skin tends to be rather oily on the middle of the face (forehead, nose, chin), called the T-zone, and normal to dry on the rest of the face.
The T-zone is often affected by minor imperfections, such as shine, blackheads (comedones) and dilated pores, which alter the skin’s quality and appearance.
Why does combination skin occur?
This skin condition is caused by an imbalance in the T-zone caused by excessive sebum production and a proliferation of certain skin bacteria.
We can also observe a thickening of the horny layer in this area, which obstructs the pores and emphasises irregularities in the skin.
What are the needs of combination skin?
No. 1 need:
Daily moisturising is the most important habit for beautiful skin! This is particularly important as combination skin has areas that naturally lack comfort, especially on the cheeks.
However, moisturising alone is not enough; combination skin also needs targeted action on the T-zone to restore clearer and fresher skin every day.
What are the actions of the Aquabella® range?
The Aquabella® range is a three-step beauty routine offering tailored effectiveness for combination skin. Thanks to the unique combination of White Waterlily and Hyaluronic Acid with a Botanical Blur Complex, it provides ideal moisturising together with a skin-beautifying action targeted on the T-zone.
The results are visible: combination skin rediscovers the purity of fresh and natural skin, with no illusions.
To care for your combination skin, you need effective moisturising combined with targeted action on the T-zone

The refreshing moisturising of White Waterlily and Hyaluronic Acid,
together with the 'skin-beautifying' effect of the Botanical Blur Complex.
White Waterlily from Madagascar
White Waterlily is a symbol of purity. Its magnificent white petals spread over the bodies of water in which it grows, creating a beautiful sight. Meaning “divinity of the waters” in Greek, it actively contributes to the development of aquatic life, thanks to the role it plays in oxygenating and purifying the water.
NUXE has selected an extract derived from White Waterlily blossoms cultivated in Madagascar. This extract has a dual “moisturising/purity” action that is ideal for combination skin:
- It helps to maintain effective moisturising of all areas of the face by trapping water molecules in the skin
- It acts specifically on oily zones for healthy and clearer skin.
Natural-origin Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule that is naturally present in the skin and widely known for its moisturising effect. It is, in fact, able to retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
NUXE has chosen a natural origin Hyaluronic Acid obtained from a botanical substrate (wheat or beet) using biotechnology. Thanks to its high molecular weight, it forms a non-occlusive moisturising film on the skin's surface so as to limit water evaporation. Its “sponge” action traps water molecules and maintains hydration in all zones of the face.
