Dry, dehydrated or combination skin?

Recommended Posts

Wondered if anyone could help me I've had troublesome skin for a long time.

I have fair skin that is sensitive as my skin really dries up when certain products are used. 

I have an oily t-zone but dry cheeks. I get flaky skin down the sides of my face where the hairline is and it gets dry around my nose. I've noticed lately that around my mouth is both oily and dry in parts (tiny flakes) and when I rub moisturiser on the skin flakes come off in my hands. A little bit of my forehead gets dry too.

I get acne but now it largely around my mouth and neck. It's rather around the corners of the mouth than on the chin area these days but do get the odd one there. 

I've recently changed to a non-fluoride toothpaste to see if that makes any difference. 

Any feedback will be much appreciated.
