If you’ve ever found yourself in a situation where no matter how hard you try, your pictures end up looking greasy and oily, here’s how you can fix it.
1. Have you heard about a mattifying moisturizer?
Moisturizers can sometimes make you sweat like if the product is dense, heavy, and oily, it’s going to make the greasy situation worse. Instead, a lightweight, fast-absorbing moisturizer allows the pores to breathe easily.
2. Or switch to a face oil instead of a moisturizer
A face oil might absorb the skin residue lightly and quickly and your skin in turn produces less oil because it registers the oily levels of the skin as sufficient. Essential oils like squalene, rose hip oil and sea buckthorn oil help moisturize the face.
3. Get acquainted with a toner
Skin toners have ingredients like witch hazel that attempt to reduce oil production in the skin without drying it out.
4. Keep a few face wipes handy
Oil builds up throughout the day but if you’re in a situation where you’re in no position to wash your face, it’s always helpful to stock up on refreshing, skin-toning face wipes that absorb excess grime and oil, while invigorating the face at the same time.
5. Do a weekly mud mask
The clay or mud in any mask will soak all impurities and gunk from the pores, preventing breakouts and reducing shine. Blue Lagoon’s Silica Mud Mask takes ingredients from the famed geothermal waters of Iceland to shrink pores, absorb grease, and give you a reset.
Don’t do it more than once a week, though, because your skin can in turn dry out. You need some oil in there to keep yourself hydrated. A weekly deep clean will do you go, so long as you follow with a cleanser and moisturizer.
