Combination Skin

Combination skin describes skin with both dry and oily characteristics: In the t-zone (forehead, nose, chin) this often means enlarged, clogged pores leading to acne. An oily sheen indicates an over-abundant secretion of the sebaceous gland. The cheek area, on the other hand, tends to be dryer, flushes easily, rarely has blemishes, and can feel dry and tight. The proper care for this skin type balances the needs of oily and blemished skin with the needs of dry skin.
