Combination skin means you have two or more different skin types on different areas of your face at one time. Your skin may be dry or flaky on certain parts of your face, and you may also have an oily T-zone, which runs along the center of your face, nose, chin, and forehead. As well, you may have combination skin if you have other skin issues, like wrinkles, breakouts, or rosacea on your face at the same time.
You can identify it by placing a tissue on your face, if the tissue has oily area in a “T” form i.e. your T- zone area- forehead, nose and chin. This means you have Combination skin. Do this process after 1 or 2 hours when you’re done washing your face and do not apply any makeup to get the right result.
With this skin type, you will need to focus on treating two skin types. You will need to moisturize the dry areas of your face and reduce excess oil on the oily areas of your face.Often, the oily area of your face will be your T-zone (your forehead, nose, above your mouth, and chin). Rather than treat your whole face with one product, you will need to treat specific areas of your face, based on the skin type.

Baking soda: This is a cheap and effective spot treatment that is easy to make. Baking soda will reduce inflammation from a pimple and help prevent future breakouts. It’s also a great exfoliator and will get rid of dead skin cells that can build up on the surface of your skin. Take a few teaspoons of baking soda and mix it with warm water until it creates a thick paste. Put the paste on dry areas of your skin, or directly on a blemish. For the first several times of use, leave the paste on for 10 to 15 minutes. Increase the time gradually, up to an hour or overnight, as your skin gets used to this spot treatment.
