What’s the problem?

Skin looks ‘shiny’ and feels oily to the touch. Particularly across the forehead, nose and cheekbones.

Quick Fixes

Try using an anti-shine ‘primer’ to keep your skin matte and shine-free all day. You can reapply these silicone rich products throughout the day to fight shine.

If you want an alternative, try shine-blotting papers – they’re little sheets of paper that you press into your skin to absorb excess oil.

Skincare Solutions

Even oily skin needs moisture – if you don’t moisturise, your skin will overcompensate by making even more oil. Try moisturisers that are labeled ‘gel’ for a nice, light option. You can also find lots of good moisturisers that contain oil absorbing particles within the formula. Massage a bit into your skin every morning after washing your face.
