Do you have dry skin in some areas, but oily in others? The dreaded T-zone of oil, but dry cheeks? That’s combination skin, and it can be difficult to develop a skin care regimen if you have it. Here’s a list of my favorite skin care products for combination skin. I’m sure you can find the right products to mix and match a regimen that’s perfect for you!
1. The Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

Use this mask once a week to deep clean. It draws out impurities and excess oil, and soothes dry and irritated skin often found in women with combination skin. Perfect!
2. Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer

I use this product every single morning after my basic wash. I love the tingle, and it keeps my skin clear of acne and so, so soft! It’s ridiculously inexpensive, but still my all-time favorite!
