  1. I misstreated my skin for soooo long, got my self acne and dry patches, I created some serious damage, now I’m a combo to its finest but it took so long to figure it out

  2. This definitely confirms that I have combination skin! I noted you mention that gel cleansers are a good option. I find that gel moisturizers work really well for controlling oil in my t-zone. I wish there was something that eliminated the pores on my nose. I always stress this in my blog posts, but I think they are larger than what’s normal for troubled skin. Sigh, oily girl issues!

    1. Ugh, I feel you on the nose pores! I notice my nose pores don’t like some foundations lol, even though I’m using a primer. I’m still playing around with different primers to see if I can fix this or just shouldn’t wear the foundation anymore.

  3. I’ve never had any clue what my skin type was, but after reading this I’m pretty sure I have normal skin. I rarely break out and my skin tends to stay clear. It CAN get dry Sometimes if I don’t moisturize it but it is never flaky feeling and it rarely feels right. I love this is well explained!

  4. I have a combination skin type, and it’s very difficult to take proper care and keep it hydrated. Thanks for this post. Very helpful.

  5. I’ve had oily skin my entire life, but I’ve def learned to embrace it and find what works for me. Gel cleansers and creams are game-changers for sure, but oils can still work for oily skin even though it seems counterintuitive!
