Dr. Oz's Skin Moisture Calculator: The Combo Skin Plan

If you're dealing with both dry and oily skin spots on your face, follow this plan from dermatologist Dr. Howard Brooks, MD.

Fix dry patches and an oily T-zone with these steps.

Step 1: Morning Routine

Rinse face with warm water only.

Step 2: Nightly Routine

Look for cleansers with glycerides, as this will help hydrate the dry skin without increasing oil production.

Step 3: Moisturizer Routine

For combination skin, you'll apply two levels of moisturizer. The base will be a pea-size amount of sunflower seed oil. Apply this twice a day, once at night and once during the day. Sunflower seed oil doesn't clog your pores and lets the oilier parts of your skin breathe. The second add-on to the drier parts of your face will be a cream moisturizer. Look for glycerides as a leading ingredient and apply to the dry spots only twice a day.
