The area around your forehead, nose, and chin of combination skin is normally oily, but the rest of your face is dry. It can also be oily and dry in separate areas, but if you have combination skin, you will detect two or more different textures on your face.

A combination skin often necessitates balancing the oily portion with the dry part of your skin. If you have combination skin, your doctor will likely recommend specialised treatment to combat possible acne breakout on your T-zone while keeping your dry skin moisturized.

When deciding on a skin care program for combination skin, it’s a good idea to be cautious. Choose moderate products that will hydrate dry areas without adding to the oiliness. And just address the areas that are affected by the problem.
