The 10 Best Moisturizers for Combination Skin, According to Dermatologists
Beauty retailers and pharmacy shelves alike are filled with products touted for dry and oily skin. But what do you do when your cheeks are dry and flaky, but your nose and T-zone has erupted into a fresh crop of pimples with oily skin to boot?
This is known as combination skin, and while it’s very common, it can be a challenge to care for, dermatologists say. Just as its name implies, combination skin doesn’t fit into any of the main categories of dry skin, sensitive skin, or oily skin—but rather, it’s a combination of all skin types.
“People with combination skin have a hard time figuring out what’s happening with their skin because they are sensing a little bit of everything,” Rachel Nazarian, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City, tells Health. That might mean you have dehydrated, sensitive skin on certain areas of your face, while other parts are extra oily. Or, your skin may shift from dry to oily, and vice versa, as the seasons or other environmental conditions change.
