When you've got a shiny T-zone and get flaky on the other parts of your face, you most likely have combination skin. That said, you need products that can balance everything to keep your skin healthy and clear. Here are some of our recommendations:

1. A gentle cleanser

Calming, milky cleansers lift dirt from the pores without leaving your skin parched and tight.

TRY: Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk, at SM Megamall

2. A balancing toner

Follow up your cleansing routine with an alcohol-free toner with essential oils that can control the shine without stripping your skin dry.

TRY: Human Heart Nature Balancing Face Toner, P99.75, at department stores

3. A duo of targeted treatments

Since your T-zone is where you most likely get zits, spreading acne-fighting toners and serums all over would only irritate the rest of your face. We recommend that you dab the said treatments only on the areas where you are zit-prone and oily.

TRY: Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, at Greenbelt 5; Mario Badescu Anti-Acne Serum, P1,619, at Rustan's branches and Sephora.ph

4. A non-greasy serum

For your U-zone (sides of the face and neck), nourish and keep it firm with a lightweight anti-aging serum.

TRY: Tony Moly The Black Tea London Classic Serum, P1,398, at SM Megamall and Zalora

5. A refreshing moisturizer

You still need to moisturize your whole face to keep the oil production and hydration levels balanced. Get a gel-based moisturizer to keep things from going haywire.

TRY: Neutrogena Hydraboost Water Gel, P855, at department stores

6. A delicate exfoliant

It's healthy to exfoliate your skin weekly to prevent the dead skin cells from blocking the treatments you apply on your face. Use one with a gentle peeling formula instead of abrasive, mechanical scrubs to avoid irritation.
