I have combination skin (dry, normal and oily). Does anybody know of a good product to use (soap, moisturizer, etc.) that takes care of all 3 types. What would be a good skin care regimen to follow.

The pharmasist recommended I use Aveeno a couple of years ago and this is what I always use now and I find it a really good product . It is Aveeno with collidial oatmeal and is supposed to be really good for the skin . I used to have a problem with dry itchy skin and haven't had a problem with it again since I started using the Aveeno .

Daily Skin Care (15-20 minutes each day): 1. Each day when you take your bath or shower, try to use luke warm water. Hot water dries out the skin. Try to limit your time to fifteen minutes or less in the bath or shower. Bathing should be done no more than once a day. If you bathe too frequently you will remove the natural oils from the skin causing dryness. 2. Avoid using harsh soaps which dry the skin. Recommended soaps are Dove and Basis. Deodorant soaps are often very harsh and drying. Even better than soap are soapless skin cleansers such as Cetaphil Lotion and Aquanil. 3. Limit the use of soap to areas that develop an odor such as the armpits, genital area, and feet. 4. When toweling dry, do not rub the skin. Blot or pat dry so there is still some moisture left on the skin. 5. Next apply a moisturizer to the skin. Concentrate on areas of your skin that become dry. Vaseline is best for severely dry skin and Lubriderm for normal skin. If you have oily skin you can skip this step. 6. All areas that are exposed to the sun, such as the face, ears, hands, and back of the neck should have a moisturizer containing sun block or a sun screen of SPF 15 or greater applied daily.

I have the same problem.. I sold Avon for 3 years and still didnt find the perfect product for myself. I do use some stuff that works well for me though. I use Phisoderm moisturizer. To clean my face I use Avons micro exfoliant (the at home alternative to microderm abrasion) but the thing I have to do is double up on moisturizer after that. It works so well on my face with taking care of the oil and dirt that I dont mind moisturizing more often.

I uses Aveena. I don't want chemicals on my face. The pharmasist will definately be the one to ask, short of a dermatologist. Everyone reacts differently, so try different ones.
