The dreaded t-zone – no matter what type of skin we glamazons might have, this tricky area tends to be problematic. Oily-skinned girls are well-aware that the forehead and bridge of the nose tend to get oily and quickly. And girls with drier skin can also experience similar problems with combination skin issues. So just how does one keep that pesky t-zone in check? From moisturizers to serums, face masks and primers – we’ve got your mattifying and cleansing products to ensure your t-zone stays unclogged and shine-free.
Keep Your T Zone Matte
Clarins Hydra-Matte Lotion
Clarins has made this wonderful moisturizer perfect for us beauty gurus with combination skin. While moisturizing oily areas may seem counter-intuitive, it’s necessary since avoiding it will only cause skin to produce even more oil. Spread this goodness over the t-zone and other oily areas for a matte yet hydrating feel.
First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay
First Aid Beauty’s Skin Rescue Purifying Mask does just that – it gives blackhead prone t-zone a deep cleanse that removes acne inducing oily build-up. Your skin will feel tighter, cleaner, and fresher after leaving this intense mask on for twenty minutes!
Ark Clearing Skin Response Serum
We here at Haute Appetite love a good serum. Ark’s Clearing Skin Response serum has that tingly effect on skin which makes it effective and oh-so-satisfying. This antibacterial serum is perfect for toning and ridding the t-zone of micro-bacterial build-up.
Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Foundation Primer
This stuff is an absolute lifesaver for prepping oily skin before applying makeup. This miracle primer lives up to its photo finish name as it smoothes and mattifies skin and actually lasts all day. Another pro? A little goes a long way. The tiniest dollop is more than enough to luxuriously cover your entire t-zone.
Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment
If a mattifying primer alone isn’t enough for you, add an extra punch with Cover FX’s primer which is not only mattifying but combats acne as well. It’s lightweight and minimizes pores all the while combating acne with effective anti-acne ingredients. You’ll never have to feel guilty about covering acne-prone skin with makeup again!
