It is often said that those of us with oilier skin are lucky, since people with oilier skin tend to age slower than those with drier skin. But that still doesn’t mean you want to walk around with skin so shiny that people can see their reflection on your forehead.
Shiny skin can be caused by a number of factors like genetics, hormones, weather, stress or even using the wrong products. The good news is that we’ve got a whole arsenal of products that will help keep your skin shine-free all day long. Check out our top 5 products to battle shine:
Clinicians Complex Foaming Gel Cleanser – Many people think that a harsh cleanser is needed to combat oily skin. However, using something too strong can actually cause the skin to produce even more oil. A gentle cleanser like this will cleanse deep into your pores while soothing and calming your skin.
Neostrata Sheer Hydration – Did you know that oily, shiny skin can also be dehydrated? This moisturizer will reduce oil while hydrating your skin at the same time. The ultra-light texture makes this perfect for the sticky weather that we are used to here in the UAE.
Murad Skin Perfecting Acne & Shine Control – Use this under makeup to mattify your skin, conceal breakouts and help your makeup stay fresh all day long. This primer gets bonus points for its SPF15 protection.
Exuviance Matte Perfection – Designed to get straight to the root of the problem, this oil-free gel instantly absorbs oil, giving you soft, matte skin in seconds. It also contains AHAs to smooth your skin and can even be applied over makeup for midday shine control.
Bliss Steep Clean Mattifying Toner Pads – These toner pads can be used after washing your face to control oil, exfoliate and minimize large pores. They can easily be thrown into your bag, making them perfect for girls on the go.
