If your skin can't decide between oily and dry, this is the guide for you. Here's our expert take on how to keep your skin balanced.
Find your Goldilocks cleanser that's not too strong and not too gentle. This will help to keep oil in check without drying out your skin.
Gently exfoliating your skin with a toner or scrub will help to regulate oil production and remove dry patches. Additional benefits of exfoliation include wrinkle reduction and breakout prevention (bonus!)
Combination skin is often a sign of dehydrated skin. If your skin isn't properly moisturized it will produce more oil to compensate, which explains why you might feel both dry and oily. Keeping your skin hydrated with a lightweight moisturizer will hep to balance your skin.
Consider only exfoliating your nose, forehead, and chin—your "T-zone"—because this is commonly the area that produces the most oil. Avoid your cheeks to keep them from feeling dry.
