My Oily Skin Saviors

Jun 6, 2013

oil-free, yay! wearing: MAC lipstick "Pink Pigeon"

Summer is pretty much here and one thing that I hate about the Summertime is how my face acts up. I have combination/oily skin and it can be such a pain. I experience oily skin pretty much in the t-zone area. My hormonal acne is finally under control (thank you birth control) and it isn't a major issue for me anymore. But as soon as it starts getting hot, my t-zone becomes an oil slick.

Luckily, I have these useful little tools that keep my face shine-free for most of the day. That and my daily makeup routine has helped keep A LOT of the oiliness under control.  I use my Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment under my daily moisurizer. This was gifted to me by my BFF and I am so happy she gave me this! This stuff is amazing! And I love the cool sensation, especially on warmer days.

For touch-ups, I use my Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens. They are available at Sephora. At $7.00, The price is pretty decent and these are the best blotting papers I have used. They absorb a lot of oil and I only need one sheet. For extra humid days, I'll touch up twice a day.

I do not wear foundation everyday. I wouldn't be able to stand it! My makeup routine for everyday is pretty simple. I'll just add a little blush or lipstick to liven it up a little.
