How To Tell Your Skin Type: Combination skin is simply that – combination, a mixture of oily and dry. People with this skin type may have some dry, flaky areas while the other areas are perfectly nice and moist.

People in this category can often have problems with finding the right products especially for their face as products for dry skin can make the oily parts more oily and products for oily skin only dry out the dry areas more.


Cleansing: There are cleansers on the market formulated especially for combination skin or you can also use cleansers that suit all skin types, especially for the skin on your face.

It’s advisable to use mild cleansers so you don’t aggravate either of the oily or dry areas of your body.


Moisturizing: Light moisturizers are recommended for combination skin so you treat the dry patches and don’t over-moisturize the oily parts.

You might also find that if you can identify the dry areas of your skin and just moisturize these areas and leave the rest of your skin alone, your skin will be happy.
