Combination skin: what is it?
Combination skin is the most common skin type.
It is called combination skin because it combines areas of normal/dry skin and areas of oily skin.
Oily skin zone:
The oily sink area is called the T-Zone and covers the forehead, the nose and the chin. The midline of the face is shiny and bears enlarged pores, mostly on the nose, sides of the nose, chin and forehead.
Normal/dry skin zone:
The rest of the face, such as the cheeks, has a normal/dry skin type.
Combination skin is the most difficult to control, as it requires treatment for two types of skin. Good quality skin care products cater for combination skin.
