48 years old - oily T-zone and breakouts

I am 48 years old and still have oily skin on my nose and breakouts in the T-zone.  What is a good skin care / makeup line that won't dry my skin and also helps with aging skin?

Re: 48 years old - oily T-zone and breakouts

For oily skin you want lightweight hydration that's not too rich/heavy and sits on your skin. It is best to splurge for anti-aging ingredients in serums and masks, so I recommend focusing on hydration for your moisturizer. Clinique Moisture Surge and Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud cream are both lightweight moisturizers that are soothing and hydrating, great for oily skin.


As for anti-aging, look for products with vitamin C and glycolic acid, which will help keep your pores clean, lightens dark spots and softens fine line/rough skin texture. You can search BeautyTalk for recommendation on good antiaging serums. Personally I'm a fan of Lancome Genefique and Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair.
