What Is Combination Skin? - Normal Skin - iVillage Beauty Skin Clinic

When you have some areas of dry skin and other areas of oily skin, it's considered combination.

On most days you probably have either normal or dry skin on most of your face, and your oily skin is concentrated on the T-zone, which is across the forehead, down the nose and chin.

You know you have combination skin when:

  • In some areas of your face it can feel tight after washing; it can be flaky, look dull or feel rough
  • In other areas, typically the T-zone, your skin looks shiny, feels greasy and is prone to pimples and blackheads
