What is a good skincare routine for combination skin that won't dry out the skin too much, or keep the skin oily, but just keep it hydrated and glowing?
What steps should I take in order to have a hydrated and glowing skin? Product recommendations (nothing extremely high end that is hard to afford) I wouldn't mind, but I want suggestions at the same time for the steps to reach that point.
Hope that makes sense.
You should make sure that you cleanse, tone, moisturize daily, AM and PM. In addition, once or twice a week, it's a good idea to exfoliate. Since you have dry skin, I would use an exfoliating product with jojoba beads because these are hydrating, as well as gentle on the skin. I would also do a moisturizing or balancing mask once a week.

This has everything you need except the exfoliator.

I second the Korres Wild Rose regimen, I was actually going to suggest that one or the Korres Yoghurt regimen. I also have combo skin and I think they are both fantastic.
I currently use Clinique's 7 Day Scrub Cream in my shower a few mornings a week and I highly recommend it. It's inexpensive, gentle, and effective at removing dead and flaky skin.
Kinerase makes a great moisturizer called "Lotion" that's hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and is designed for normal-to-oily skin, plus it's non-irritating for sensitive skin. You can use it as your AM and PM moisturizer and it works great underneath makeup, too. You can find it at: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P100110
I hope this helps you.
