Maintaining my skin has been one of the struggles that I have to constantly deal with for the longest time now. I may not have that perfect skin state but I have my fair share of visit inside a dermatologist’s office. Im not saying I’m some kind of a skin-guru but here are just some tips that helped me in dealing my combination (oily-dry) skin.
1. Don’t use towel in wiping your face
— Towel are out in open for bacteria to live in
2. Don’t use any hard-core chemical cleanser
— Usually drugstore are very prone to this

3. Use sunscreen all the time
— This one step I actually just newly accustomed. I never really realized how even inside the house I need to use sunscreen. Not until a year ago, my dermatologist explained how the heat and sun’s ray of light cause so much damage to the skin. Other steps to skin regime is almost useless without protecting the skin.
4. Use moisturizer
— Moisturizer is the one thing that I can’t live without. It my cheeks are dry thus the daily use of moisturizer. It helps prevent the drying and peeling of my skin. Believe me when I say, even oily people must use it. It helps restore the moisture of the skin that are gone from when washed and locks in the natural oils so as for our skin to not over reproduce oil.
5. Drink lots of water
