Combination skins are very common and are one of the most frequently misunderstood and mistreated skins. This type of skin has a greasy area, while the rest is dry or normal. The forehead, nose and chin i.e. the T-zone, may be greasy and the rest dry. It requires separate treatment for each area. Both the dry and greasy areas need moisturizing.
Care for combination skin
Clean the entire face twice a day with a mild cleanser. Apply a good moisturizer on the dry areas of the face as moisturizing the skin increases the penetration of water into the skin and reduces the rate at which water evaporates from the surface of the skin. For the oily areas apply any kind of oil absorbing creams and lotions.
