What can you do about it ?
One of the keys to keeping your skin healthy is choosing skin care products that work on both types of skin.
I love the Balancing Cleanser for Combination Dry and Combination Oily Skin types because it has activated charcoal to absorb the impurities from the oilier areas but is in a lotion base which is great for the drier areas of the skin.
Another cleanser for the very oily combination skin type would be the Oil Control Cleanser which would help balance oil.
The Deep Pore Cleanser would work on combination dry skin that is not very dry.
You can brighten and smooth out the complexion with Hydrating Serum.
Mild exfoliation will help even the skin tone and remove build up, but too much can be irritating and abrasive.
A lightweight hydrating moisturizer will help your skin maintain it's moisture level but only on the dry areas; and
last but not least sun protection of SPF 30 or more would be fantastic! Sunscreen not only helps to ward off cancer, but it helps even your skin tone too !
And never wash your face with hot water. Light steaming of not more than once per week would be beneficial especially if done at night along with your evening regimen.

In the morning
Start your day by cleansing with your choice of Cleanser. Apply to a dry skin with upward, circular motions. Rinse. Next spritz your skin with the Tonic of your choice. Don't Rinse. Then dab a drop or two of Hydratingr Serum to your face and neck. (Don't Rinse) This will leave your skin smooth looking and brightens the complexion. Next hydrate with Rose Hydrating Cream on dry areas only. Don't Rinse. And finally, don't leave home without a thin layer of EvenSkin SPF 30. This will help keep your skin tones even.
In the evening
Before retiring for the evening. Cleanse with your choice of Cleanser. Apply to a dry
skin with upward, circular motions. Rinse. Next spritz your skin with
the Tonic of your choice. Don't Rinse. Then dab a drop or two

leave your skin smooth looking and brightens the complexion. Next
hydrate with Rosewater Hydrating Cream. Don't Rinse.
Once a week:
In the evening gently cleanse with Balancing Cleaner or Deep Pore Cleanser, rinse and cleanse for a second time with AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. Rinse well with warm water. Follow with your choise of Tonic. Apply a thin layer of Hydrating Serum and a thin layer of either Rosewater Hydrating Cream.
If you are allergic to citrus, do not use AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser without testing it first on a small section of your skin.
If you are using Differen, Retin-A, or similar exfoliating treatments from your doctor, do not use AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. If you have any questions, please consult your physician.
