Dry skin with breakouts or combination skin?

Q I’ve always had dry skin (feels tight after washing even just with water). However for the last year or so I’ve noticed more congestion on my forehead and jaw, as well as some breakouts on my chin. But my skin still feels tight after washing. I dont want to over exfoliate because my skin will dry out worse - but my chin ALWAYS has a zi! Does this mean I have combination skin? Historically salycylic acid and benzoyl perozide spot treatments dry out or irritate my skin as well. So I have no idea what products to use for congnestion or zits - or dryness! Any advice?

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the Eminence brand , their Clear Skin Starter Set. I also would recommend adding their Stone Crop Hydrating Mist after you have cleansed, to help with that tight feeling. It`s nice to start off with a kit to see how your skin will work with the products and from there you can purchase in the larger sizes. Thhank you for making Dermstore your #1 source for all things beauty!
