Dr. G. Todorov, “Skin is a dynamic system whose condition and properties depend on temperature, hydration, environment and other factors. Therefore, the skin’s ability to absorb topically chemicals can vary greatly.”
If you have tried to moisturize your skin so it will be soft and supple, but your nose and chin get too oily, causing an acne breakout, you might have combination skin. If you use scrubs and toners to try to control the oil and find that your cheeks become so parched that you look much older, you have combination skin. When you have combination skin, your main goal is to balance it out. You want to keep the dry areas moisturized and your more oily areas relatively dry. The result is worth the extra bit of attention. Make sure you wash your face daily, using a good cleanser then use a moisturizer with SPF protection.

Since our face can be something special that makes us memorable in a positive way and helps boost our self-esteem, we may actually need to pay closer attention to our skin each day.
