I'm Dr. Rosalyn George from Wilmington Dermatology Center in Wilmington, North Carolina and I'd like to give you some tips on caring for combination skin. Combination skin is when you are dry on your lateral cheeks and on the center of your face or your T zone is oily. And the reason that that happens is because your oil glands are actually more located on the center of your face than they are on your lateral cheeks. One of the best things is to use a cleanser that will get rid of oil but it isn't drying. And two of the ones I really like are Cetaphil Hydrating Cleanser and also Cerave makes a foaming cleanser which is really nice because it will get rid of oil but it doesn't overly dry the skin. Lightweight moisturizers that are oil free, so you're still getting some moisture for that dry skin, but you're not overly, adding an overly oil product for oily skin. Other things that you can do for combination skin is seek professional help. So, a dermatologist frequently perform chemical peels and microdermabrasion which are good ways to keep your skin healthy. That was some basic information, but before you start any skin care program or have any procedures, please consult with your dermatologist or skin care specialist.
