Your T-Zone is a specific area of your face which includes the forehead, nose, chin and area circling the mouth. That makes sense considering that all those sections of your face create a T shape when mapped on your skin.
This unique area of your face can often become more susceptible to oil, clogged pores and damage because it produces more oil than any other part of your face. This is simply because these areas actually have more oil glands than any other part of your face which is why you hear so many people complain about their “oily T-Zone”. While we can’t control where our oil-producing glands are, there are easy steps you can take to make sure your T-Zone looks its best and doesn’t complicate the rest of your skin.
How Can You Care For Your T-Zone?
Depending on your skin type, you’re going to want to care for your T-Zone in a specific way. If you’re cleansing every day, make sure to stay away from alcohol based cleansers which are going to keep your oil T-Zone oily and dry out the rest of your face. Instead, opt for a more gentle, oil-based cleanser which will help even out your skin’s oil and not cause any damage.
You also want to make sure that your anti aging cream is water based.
It allows for your pores to breathe and won’t cause excess oil on your T-Zone. Your T-zone acts differently than the rest of your skin, so it’s wise to treat it differently.
If you find that area is still notoriously oily, try applying a toner or a clay mask just to that area only. It won’t disrupt the rest of your skin but it will help reduce oil and make sure that your face as a whole looks balanced and well cared for.
