Dry but oily skin is very similar than combination skin
but it gets much more oily through out the day compared to combination skin plus it also is more prone for breakouts. This type of skin is quite thick and it's typical that it feels tight but also oily under the top layer. Because of the skin is dry it might also have little white spots called miliums.
When treating skin that's dry and oily it is very important to calm/cool the skin, clean the infected breakouts and balance the sebum production. The skin also needs moistuizing in order to avoid forming of breakouts and also so that it doesn't feel dry. Avoid harsh cleaning products that contain alcohol! The skin is best to clean with cleansing milks, balms or oily cleansers. This will balance out the skin and also when you are not washing away all the sebum the skin does not feel the need to push the oil out so heavily so using oily products could actually reduce the oilyness of the skin. You can boost the cleansing routine by using a muslin cloth
but if you have a lot of infected breakouts remember to wash the cloth thoroghly after using it.
You should use toner/facial water in the morning and at night after washing off your make-up. Favor products that have ingredients with astringent and cleaning properties such as witch hazel or tea tree. For a cream you are best off with a very thin fluid-type product and add a good quality cold pressed organic oil to go with it. Ingredients such as jojoba oil, evening primerose oil or rosehip oil are good for this kind of skintype. Avoid using topically comedogenic oils such as coconut oil. If you want to boost your skincare routine, choose a serum that's cleansing or moisturizing, depending on your need. For a peeling product you should use an enthsymatic peel.
If you have a lot of infected break outs you should eat foods and suplements that reduce the inflamation. A good example is products that contain omega-3 acids such as Chia seeds.
