How can I prevent my t-zone from being too oily?

I have combination skin, but my skin is more oily than dry. What do I do?. I have tried: Skin cleansers, facial washes, etc.. I think it was caused by: Bad diet


If you have an oily T-zone and combination skin you may be more managing this problem rather than solving it. Avoid alcohol based cleansers and toners and only wash your face once or twice a day. Constantly cleaning your face in an attempt to get rid of the oil can trigger it to produce more oil than ever because over-cleansing irritate oily skin.

it is best to avoid moisturizing your T-zone at all as lotions and creams can provoke it to become oily. If you must moisturize your T-zone use a water-based product in that area.

You may only be able to manage this problem if you wear a lot of makeup every day. Be as skimpy as possible with make-up in the T-zone area and use blotting papers to soak up any excess shine that might occur in the area.

How to prevent oily skin when I'm fond of very warm water?

I can't use tepid water in winter.


For washing your face, you will have to use moderately warm (lukewarm) water. This means that it should feel slightly warm to your skin and be a bit above your body temperature, which is 36.6℃ (98℉). For example, 40℃ (105℉) is perfect temperature for tepid water. I understand your preference and how it feels to get under a cold shower during a winter day (it gets to -40℃ (-40℉) in winter in my area, and hot water sometimes is not getting into apartments), but, as a well-known proverb says, "No pain, no gain". Let your skin adapt to the new temperature, and it will show you gratitude with changes.
