Having combination skin does not gives you the pass to skip your moisturiser. Not using any moisturiser will cause the skin to become even more dry and feel stretchy. Always remember to hydrate your skin properly and it is suggested that you use a moisturiser that is either oil free or has little oil in to avoid making the T-zone of your face excessively oily.

Do: Frequently change your skincare routine

During winters the skin becomes dry even the t-zone and therefore moisturisers of skin oils are recommended for use, whereas during summer season the skin tend to become excessively, even the dry areas and so using oil free moisturisers with cooling and soothing agents is often recommended.
