T-Zone usually oily, but tight after shower?

Hey pickies! I have a question about what’s going on with my skin after I take a shower. So, I have combo/oily skin (sort of oily T-zone with normal cheeks). However, after I take a shower, my skin - ESPECIALLY my t-zone - feels so tight and like the moisture has been sucked from my skin. It’s so uncomfortable, and I crave immediate hydration. Is it normal for an oily t-zone to experience this, or is this a sign my skin type is something else? This pretty much happens whether or not I use a cleanser in the shower (sometimes I forget to use it). In fact, more so when I don’t cleanse my face in the shower.

Usually hot shower dries out skin... would suggest to use a hydrating cleanser and use toner after you are done showering. Also, oily doesn't equal to hydration. I know when my skin is dehydrated, it tends to produce more oil to "compensate". So now, I have been using hydrating mist a few times in the middle of the day, and it really help reduce the oiliness in my T zone/ nose/ chin area. Hope it helps ❤️

I learned that recently! My skin feels dehydrated sometimes - any cleansers you recommend?

You may have hard water which would dry your skin out even more. A gentle cleanser would be a good addition. Apply a hydrating toner or serum right after and a moisturiser with some occlusive ingredients.
