Struggling with an oily T-zone? If you have oily or combination skin, the area on your face that forms a “T”—your forehead, nose, and chin—is likely a significant factor in your skin concerns. After all, a buildup of oil in these spots can lead to T-zone acne, a greasy-looking complexion, and more. No thanks! Looking to keep the oil at bay? Below, we’re sharing seven skin care and makeup tips for managing an oily T-zone so you can kiss that excess shine goodbye.
Are you using a cleanser that’s formulated for your oily skin? Using the wrong skin care products could be a leading cause as to why your T-zone is oilier than you’d like. To keep shine under control, consider using one of the following cleansers for oily and combination skin.
L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types: This micellar water for all skin types completely cleans dirt and impurities in one step, leaving it feeling hydrated and purified. Micellar water is powered by micelle molecules that cluster together to surround and lift away impurities, makeup, and unwanted oil with no rinsing or harsh rubbing required. To use, saturate a cotton pad and gently wipe it over your face until your skin is completely clean.
L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean All Skin Types Foaming Gel Cleanser: This foam cleanser gently removes makeup and buffs away impurities, leaving skin refreshed and radiant. The gel makes removing makeup quick and easy, deeply purifying while helping to minimize pores. It works for all skin types and won’t leave any tightness or residue. To use, wet face and hands with lukewarm water. Work a small amount of gel into a foamy lather and massage onto your skin with a gentle, circular motion. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes: Prefer a quick and easy cleansing option? These ultra-soft towelettes dissolve dirt and oil while gently yet effectively removing all traces of makeup, leaving you with clean skin and visibly tightened pores. To use, all you have to do is gently wipe your face and eye area. No rinsing needed!
Think you don’t need to moisturize if you have an oily T-zone? Think again! The truth is, neglecting to moisturize can actually result in your skin producing more oil in an attempt to hydrate your complexion. Not exactly ideal, huh? Make sure to apply a moisturizer for oily skin morning and evening as the last step in your skin care routine. Give the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Oily Skin a try.
Toner can help ensure any residue of oils, dirt, and impurities left behind after cleansing is removed from your skin. It can also help your skin retain moisture, which brings us back to tip number two. Consider adding the L’Oréal Paris HydraFresh Toner to your morning and nighttime routines by saturating a cotton pad and wiping it over clean skin.
Face masks aren’t just for showing yourself a little self-care—they can provide their own set of benefits. For example, the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask removes dead cells, dirt, and oil from your skin, leaving you with clean, healthy-looking complexion. Consider multi-masking by applying the mask to your oily T-zone, while applying a different mask from the Pure-Clay line to the rest of your face, choosing one based on your skin concerns.
Notice your T-zone getting a little shiny throughout the day? That’s where blotting papers come into play. These oil-absorbing sheets will soak up any excess shine that makes an appearance—without removing your perfectly applied makeup. Want to learn more? Here’s Why Blotting Papers Are a Must for Your Makeup Bag.
To ensure your makeup doesn’t budge throughout the day, it’s important to apply a makeup primer as the first step in your routine. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Lock Makeup Primer is perfect for your oily T-zone, as it keeps oil at bay while blurring imperfections for a matte finish that lasts all day.
Speaking of matte finishes, it’s a good idea to use a matte foundation on the regular. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, which has a lightweight, creamy formula with a demi-matte finish.
Next up: Let’s go over why you might have an oily T-zone in the first place with the help of our article, 9 Reasons You Might Have Oily Skin.
