I have combination skin but it seems to go to extremes! I struggled with acne as a teenager so have some hyperpigmentation but only get the occasional breakout these days on my chin or cheeks.

My t-zone tends to get extremely oily and has very large pores. My forehead gets very dry and is quite rough textured although it looks like it has large pores (very rare to get a spot on my forehead at least). My cheeks have fairly good skin except for the hyperpigmentation. My chin is where I'm breakoutprone and is slightly oily but nothing like my nose, it tends to get a lot of small lumps and bumps and blackheads. Nightmare.

How do I get a skincare routine for this?!

I would recommend watching youtube channels to get an understanding of skincare and to know the basics for your skin type. Beauty within is a good channel to watch (https://youtu.be/vpB0u6zze-0), as well as reading Caroline Hirons' blog https://www.carolinehirons.com/page-category/skincare (she also has a youtube channel) for product recommendations.

If watching videos isnt for you, a way to get quick advice from skincare lovers and those who may have similar concerns is on the subreddit (on the app reddit) called r/SkincareAdditction (https://www.reddit.com/r/SkincareAddiction/). People are always willing to help and recommend products. For professional advice maybe see a dermatologist?

Sounds like your skin is dehydrated which makes it seem dry. A good routine would be a cleanser, hydrating toner, serum and spf. I use some amazing products so let me know if youd like some recommendations
