8 Dermatologist-Approved Tips To Help An Oily T-Zone (Without Overdrying It!)
Let’s chat T-zones for a bit—that oil-slick part of the face that’s prone to a midday shine and the unfortunate batch of breakouts. If your skin runs oil-prone, you’re likely well versed in the particular set of frustrations associated with it. Obviously the goal is to manage sebum in the area—but then you have to think of the rest of the face, and be mindful not to go overboard on drying ingredients. It requires a delicate hand, this T-zone.
Never skip moisturizers.
Consider this a cardinal rule of beauty: Everyone, no matter your skin type or concern, needs to hydrate. “Always moisturize to prevent irritation. Even if your skin feels oily, a light moisturizer is important to tolerate exfoliants and retinoids, and don’t forget, too many products can dehydrate skin and lead to breakouts as skin produces extra oil to compensate,” says Michele J. Farber, M.D., of Schweiger Dermatology Group in Philadelphia.
