Say goodbye to oily skin, and hello to a shine-free complexion that lasts all day. Here are three quick tips on how to get rid of shine and control your oily skin so it’s balanced, fresh, and matte all day long.
Step 1: Use an oil-free hydrator.
Yes, oily skin still needs hydration, even in hot and humid weather. Having excess oil means that you don’t have enough water in your skin—and water helps keep your skin balanced. Use an oil-free formula, like Moisture Surge 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator that has hyaluronic acid and activated aloe water to keep your skin continuously hydrated. This refreshing gel-cream absorbs instantly and won’t leave your skin with any greasy residue, making it a great moisturiser for oily skin.
Step 2: Control shine with a matte foundation for oily skin.
For a balanced complexion, use a lightweight foundation that delivers a natural matte finish from morning to night. The best matte foundation? Try Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup. It has laminaria saccharina extract and willow bark extract, which help absorb and control excess oil, and resist sweat and high humidity.
Step 3: Set your makeup with powder.
Finish with an oil-free pressed powder, like Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, to minimise shine. It’s formulated with microscopic beads that trap and absorb oil, so your skin feels fresh and stays matte. Use it all over or on your T-Zone, which tends to get extra shiny.
