How to Care for Combination Skin
If your skin is oily on your "T-Zone" (forehead, nose and chin) and dry everywhere else, you have combination skin. Because you're basically dealing with two different skin types, you need a routine that works for both of them — which can mean using different products for different parts of your face.
For a daily routine:
- Wash your face in the morning and before bedtime with a mild, soap-free cleanser to keep the oily zones clear.
- Use a moisturizer only on your dry zones (applying it to the oily zones will only make your skin oilier).
- Since your skin type requires more effort, block off an hour once a week to pamper your skin. Use an oil-absorbing facial mask but only over the oily areas (follow the instructions on the product). Apply a moisturizing serum to the dry zones.
