Cleansing an oily T-zone starts with using the right cleanser, like Guinot Hydraclean Gel Nettoyant Universel — Universal Cleansing Gel. Avoid using alcohol based cleansers and limit washing your face with a gentle cleanser two times per day.
Even if your face feels greasy, getting enthusiastic with washing your face can irritate or cause your skin to produce more oil, which is exactly the opposite of what we want!
Look for cleansers formulated for oily skin and use a gentle exfoliator on occasion to get rid of debris.
When you have oily skin, according to AllWomenTalk, it might seem like moisturising is a bad idea but it needs to be done! Just like with over-cleansing, if we don’t properly moisturise then our skin can become dry, thereby encouraging more oil production.
Then choose a water-based moisturiser that’s non-comedogenic and oil-free. If you have combo skin, you might want to use a lighter moisturizer on your T-zone and a thicker formula on the rest of your face.
Oily skin can really benefit from a targeted mask. Clarifying masks can help deep clean pores and absorb excess oil. Look for clay or tea tree oil masks in stores or, according to Cosmetics Cop Paula Begoun, you can “make” a really easy mask at home by applying Milk of Magnesia to your face! MoM can be used as a mask or a makeup primer so try them both out!
Part of the Hydraclean treatment. The Hydraclean treatment is designed to cleanse the face paying particular attention to the T-zone, thanks to the only treatment method of its kind in the world.
The 30-minute treatment combines deep cleansing and a relaxing massage, leaving the skin clear and radiant. After 30 minutes, the skin is clear and radiant, breathes better and is more receptive to the subsequently applied skin care products.
Deep Cleansing: The Hydraclean Treatment is the only deep cleansing treatment that acts simultaneously on both sweat and sebaceous glands. The Thermoclean heating electrode diffuses gentle heat that rids the skin of toxins and excess sebum.
