By now, you’re fully aware that your complexion needs a daily dollop of moisturizer to stay hydrated and blemish-free. But finding that one-in-a-million formula that’s just right for your skin is like trying to find existential meaning in the latest Fast and Furious movie. Translation: Nearly impossible. 

Rather than slathering on an odd-smelling cream from the suspicious-looking bottle in your medicine cabinet, hop on over to the Birchbox Man Guide and use this cheat sheet to find the right moisturizer for your skin type

Skin Rx: Combo Conundrum

A friend just emailed with this question: “I have an oily T-zone but my cheeks tend to get really dehydrated and flaky. Should I be trying to avoid putting moisturizer on my T-zone and just hydrating my cheeks? Or layering it all over? Or two different products? Help!”

Not to worry. This sounds like a case of typical combination skin. It can be difficult to treat with one product, but two usually does the trick! I’d recommend Pomega5 Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer for the T-zone and any oily areas, and Pomega5 Healing Cream on the remainder of the face.
