For acne and dark spots on the t-zone, what type of cream or moisturizer is recommended?

For acne and dark spots on the t-zone, what type of cream or moisturizer is recommended?

Acne and dark spots: Pimples on your face's T zone can be hard to manage, because the forehead, nose and chin can be oily at the same time the area around the mouth and cheeks are dry and flaky. The T zone is prone to pimples and blackheads because there are more oil-producing glands in those areas, according to TeensHealth. Although pimples in the T zone can be frustrating, you can control them with patience and proper care. Step 1 Wash your face with warm water and a mild cleanser twice a day, in the morning and at night. Massage the cleanser into your face without scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly with warm water; cleanser remaining on the skin can clog the pores, causing pimples and blackheads. Step 2 Saturate a cotton ball with a toner containing salicylic acid, recommends "Seventeen." Smooth the toner over your T zone. Alternatively, apply an over-the-counter skin care product containing benzoyl peroxide, which will dry oily T zone areas and decrease bacteria that can cause pimples and blackheads.
