Combination Skin

Combination skin is actually quite common, and can be very frustrating to deal with. If you have combination skin, that means that you have certain zones and areas which are oily, and others which are dry. This means that you have to treat each condition separately.

There is no such thing as a product which can treat both oily and dry skin at the same time. Each type of skin has different needs, and what is good for one will cause complications for the other. Luckily, the zones of oiliness and dryness tend to be fairly well separated, and with a little care you can treat each one.

Dry and Oily Zones in Combination Skin

The oily zone in combination skin is typically the T-zone: the forehead, nose and chin. You can find cleansers and creams which dry up oil, and even new state-of-the-art products which inhibit oil production. You may also need products to treat pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads, which are likely to crop up in oily zones.

The dry areas are typically the cheeks, neck, lips, and around the eyes. These areas all need special care, not just to stay moisturized, but to avoid wrinkles and flaking. If you want to find out more about products which are better than those you can find in your neighborhood stores, the Internet is a great source of information.
