Of all the different areas of the face, the t-zone seems to be the most troublesome. Our customers often come to us or recommendations for dealing with their t-zone, be it too oily, too dry or prone to breakouts, and with that in mind, we’ve curated a list of products which are our go-to allies against a tricky t-zone. Here are five of our favourites:
Removing excess oil from a tricky t-zone is an important step to rebalancing the skin, and this masque from Dermalogica does so without dehydrating the skin. It contains mallow, arnica and cucumber extracts, which are naturally soothing, preventing irritation and the development of blemishes.
Toning your skin is key to maintaining a good pH level, which is essential if you don’t want to over-produce sebum and develop spots. This soothing toner from Elemis tones the skin and helps maintain the pH level, without the use of alcohol or other harsh detergents, revealing a fresh and radiant complexion.
Skin which is overproducing sebum can quickly become congested, which means that your t-zone can easily become home to blemishes and blackheads – an unsightly problem. Dermalogica’s Overnight Clearing Gel designed to help clear skin congestion and help prevent future breakouts. It contains rosemary and spiraea extracts, which inhibit the growth of acnegenic bacteria while stimulating the skin’s natural antimicrobial agents for clearer, healthier skin.
If you should happen to wake up to discover an obvious blemish in your t-zone, don’t panic. Decleor’s Imperfections roll-on is designed to deal with situations like this. It cleanses the skin and quickly reduces the appearance of blemishes and imperfection, while the refreshing gel formulation soothes the skin.
Protecting your t-zone from the sun and ensuring adequate levels of moisturisation are hugely important, which is why this oil-free lotion is on our list. It’s a lightweight, broad-spectrum sunscreen which provides SPF30 protection and also prevents shine, regulates oil production and soothes inflammation. It is suitable for skin with excess oil production.
