Combination skin refers to skin with two or more distinctly different characteristics on different parts of the face. The most common combination skin is oily in certain areas and then dry or normal in the other areas. Usually, the “T-zone” (forehead, nose, and chin) is oily and the cheeks and around the eyes are normal or dry. Ninety-five percent of combination skin types will fit this description. The other five percent can have a variety of combinations such as a blemished forehead, dry cheeks and normal everywhere else, or the skin could be normal in the “T-zone” and dry everywhere else.
