What Is A T-Zone?


As you may or may not know, men have oilier skin than woman. In both men and women, the T-Zone is an area of your face that is prone to being oilier than the rest. It is made up of part of your forehead just above the eye brows, the nose, chin, and a bit around the mouth. 

The reason this area is oilier is because there is a greater amount of oil glands in this area. This can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and shiny skin among other possible issues. When the T-Zone is oily, but the rest of the face is normal, this is referred to as combination skin. With any skin care routine, the idea is to balance it all out and keep it under control. Everyone's skin is different, but this can be achieved by choosing the right cleanser, moisturizer, and potentially including a toner and mask in your routine.
