If you use the whole face cosmetics designed for oily skin areas with normal, much less dry skin can become drier; and if you only use cosmetics for dry skin, increase the fat content of the T-zone.
Clean the T-zone more carefully

It is enough moisturize the T-zone, so the normal daily moisturizer can be applied only on the cheeks and the skin around the eyes. Night cream is applied on the cheeks profusely, and on the T-zone - a very large number.
Moisturize dry skin with carrier oils
Such oils include, for example, almond oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil. They are perfectly moisturize and smooth the skin, but they are recommended to be applied only where the skin is very dry and / or where they began to appear the first signs of aging.

Carry a water bottle with a spray, if necessary, in addition to moisturize dry skin. This is especially useful during the heating season, when dry air quickly robs the skin of moisture. If you make up, do not splash water on the T-zone.
Use primer to control the richness of T-zone
Before applying make-up, apply a primer on the T-zone (the remaining areas of the skin - on request). This, of course, does not decrease the activity of the sebaceous glands, but will help to avoid the appearance of oily shine for hours.

If you are not sure that your skin the classic characteristics of the mixed type, perform a simple test: one hour after washing (during which you can not use any makeup) attach to the face cloths - grease stains on them will point out which areas of the skin secrete most fat.
