How to take care of the T-Zone?

Are you one of those who are bored by your T-zone? Between shine, blackheads and imperfections, are you struggling to overcome them and don't know what to do? While dry skin struggles against tightness, those with combination to oily skin are in perpetual combat with this capricious area.

Here are all the secrets that will allow you to take care of your T zone and find a perfect and unified complexion ☺️.

What is the T-Zone?

The T-zone is a term used in cosmetics to refer to the middle area of ​​the face, which forms a T. It covers the forehead, nose and chin.

In this area, the epidermis is oilier than on the rest of the face, because there are twice as many sebaceous glands. It is thanks to these sebaceous glands that our hydrolipidic film exists and protects us from bacteria and other external aggressions.

Of course, it happens that the skin secretes too much sebum which then leads to unsightly and uncomfortable shine.

This excess sebum can be explained by a host of factors that are difficult to prevent, such as hormonal imbalance, weather changes, stressful situations, a pollution peak, dehydration, etc.

With this excess fat then appear imperfections such as the appearance of blackheads, dilated pores and pimples.

Rest assured, although the T-Zone of the face is capricious, it is quite possible to treat and balance it to find healthy and harmonious skin :).

How to pamper your T-Zone – The guide

In beauty, nothing is irreversible and everything can be cured. You can therefore treat your epidermis and mainly your T zone. Here are some simple rules to follow daily to regain baby-like, smooth and radiant skin!

Rule #1 – Eat well

Have you ever heard the expression "we are what we eat"? We can never say it enough, to take care of yourself, you have to eat well. And if eating well is essential for our health, it is also the key to having beautiful skin. The more fatty and sweet you eat, the more your skin will make you pay for it: dilation of pores, appearance of blackheads and impurities.

We must therefore avoid excesses and promote a diet rich in fruits and vegetables 🍓🥦.

You also need to hydrate, for that we strongly encourage you to drink 1.5 liters of water a day 💧. Your skin will be more radiant!

Rule n°2 – Gently cleanse your T-Zone

When you have oily skin, you tend to want to strip it to dry it out and regain normal skin. Unfortunately, by acting in this way we attack the sebaceous glands which will respond by secreting more sebum to counter the dryness. We then enter a veritable vicious circle which does not regulate the epidermis but irritates it.

To start, always remove make-up from your skin with vegetable oil. It won't clog your pores since it's not meant to stay on the skin 😉

If you have combination or oily skin, you should cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type.Here are three soaps we recommend 😍:

You can accompany the vegan cleanser with a konjac sponge to unclog pores

Rule #3 – Gently exfoliate

Once a week, we advise you to exfoliate your face to unclog the impurities stuck in the pores. The exfoliation will loosen the dead cells and promote the absorption of the care in the epidermis.

You must opt ​​for a gentle face exfoliant ☁️, which will not attack the epidermis.

Rule #4 – Hydrate your oily T-zone

If your skin is secreting a lot of sebum, it's trying to send you a message. Generally, the epidermis is dehydrated and tries to balance itself 😥.

To avoid this phenomenon, you must moisturize your T Zone with a good moisturizer and above all do not dry it out. You just have to be careful not to use an overly nourishing cream.

To hydrate it, we recommend using the floral lotion 🌸 and moisturizing cream combo.

The floral lotion will promote the penetration of your moisturizer, the effectiveness will then be increased tenfold.
