When soaring temperatures kick your oil glands into overdrive, and the humidity adds a sticky film, you’ve got the summer greasies. While you can’t control the weather, you can take steps to keep your face feeling fresh.
Start by cleansing your face with an oil-free foaming cleanser, to unclog pores and remove oil, perspiration and makeup.
Follow up by using a mattifying toner with a pH- balanced formula to refine and tighten pores and control shine.
Now don’t put oil on that clean skin! Use noncomodogenic (non pore-clogging) oil-free cosmetics made with minerals for matte-finish sun protection, or with rice powder for a shine-free finish.
When choosing a sunscreen for your face, look for a light, greaseless SPF 15 formula.
On the go, powdered blotting tissues are perfect for quick touchups! Simply press the rice paper to your skin, blot, and let the powder-coated paper absorb surface oils without taking off your makeup.
After playing sports or working out, exfoliate and cleanse your face with a dry cleansing cloth. Just add water to these disposible, take-anywhere cleansers. Use the smooth side to cleanse, the textured side to exfoliate.
To prevent clogged pores, make sure you remove your makeup before going to bed. Even if you’re exhausted you can thoroughly cleanse your complexion in seconds with a facial cleansing towelette. These pre-moistened alcohol-free, hypoallergenic washcloths remove even mascara quickly.
