I’ve been in VA for over six years and I’ve slowly learned that products that worked for me in FL, don’t necessarily cut the mustard now; (bonus points to anyone who understood that saying).
When it comes to the drier season, skin hydration is very important. Now I always make the disclaimer, skincare is a very personal thing. Most of it is trial and error. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out the balance. But if you feel you have skin similar to mine, here's what works for me.
I have oily skin. In a very short time, my t-zone is a veritable oil slick. I’m always on the hunt for products that mattify my skin (more on that later). What I’ve discovered in my search was surprising. Although my skin is oily, I still need a fair amount of products that hydrate the skin. I would typically look for oil free products; but I’ve found that my skin would only produce more oil. I must keep my skin properly hydrated to decrease it’s natural oil production. Here is a product I’ve found that works very well for me an my oily skin.
