4 Tips For Keeping Oily Skin Under Control In The Summer Heat

Having oily skin is not fun, especially in the summer. Between the heat, the sun and ample amounts of humidity, my oily skin takes a toll. I have to worry about my makeup melting the moment I step outside, among other things, and it’s just not fun. My skin is more combination to oily, but I still deal with all the annoyances of oiliness. Through my years of dealing with this common beauty issue, I’ve found a few go-to products to help keep oily skin under control.

1. Use the right cleanser. Not every cleanser is created equal. If you have oily skin, it’s important to use a cleanser that contains salicylic acid. This will help prevent breakouts, clear away excess oil and unclog pores. A lot of people recommend using Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. Don’t forget to exfoliate 1-2 times a week to remove dead skin cells!

2. Blotting papers really work. I rely on blotting papers to get me through the day. The thing I love about blotting papers is that while they remove all excess oil, they leave makeup in place. I also get a sense of relief when I see how much oil I’m blotting away. Uhh, did I just admit that? Anyway, I use drugstore brand blotting papers because they work just as well as a brand name. These are seriously a necessity to keep in your bag all summer long.

3. Use an oil-free moisturizer. Most people who have oily skin don’t use moisturizer because they think it will only add more oil to their skin. That’s wrong. Your skin will actually produce more sebum (oil) to make up for what it’s not getting. Choose any oil-free moisturizer, something lightweight and breathable. I’m a fan of Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation because it’s lightweight, helps even skin tone and has anti-aging benefits.

4. Makeup setting spray is your friend. Ladies, an absolute must-have product for your repertoire is Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray. After applying your makeup, give your face a few spritz’s of this amazing spray. From personal experience, I can tell you it keeps makeup in place all day, without smudging, melting or having to reapply. It also helped keep oil at bay. Once you use this Urban Decay spray, you’ll wonder how to ever lived without it.
