A Five-Step Program For Sweaty Summer Skin

The first step to getting over a problem is admitting that you have one. Now that we’ve divulged our summer beauty routines, I figured it was time to give up the goods on the five-step program that keeps my naturally oily skin looking summertime fly, and by that I mean dry. If you’re having grease problems, I feel bad for you, son, but I can almost guarantee that mine are worse than yours, especially during the hottest months of the year when sweat exacerbates the issue. My face practically screams, “Drill me.”

With years of market research (sometimes referred to as “shopping at Sephora”), I’ve found that the best way to treat my reactive, combination-to-oily skin and keep it under control is by supplementing my sensitive skin wash-and-tone routine with sebum-fighting powerhouses that simultaneously work to clear up blemishes. Most of them will get you matte in a pinch, and others help with oil production and congestion in the long run. Use one or all of these five tried-and-true slick-solvers, blot throughout the day as necessary, and revel in your miraculously matte complexion. Now isn’t that a relief?

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Ideal Skin Genesis Complexion Equalizer

I have extremely oily skin that is a curse (I’m always shiny) and a blessing (I won’t wrinkle easily). So for years, I’ve ignored the advice of my dermatologist and beauty professionals who said I should moisturize despite my skin type. Until recently, I hadn’t found a moisturizer that wouldn’t contribute to the oil slick and cause breakouts. I happened upon the L’Oreal Ideal Skin Genesis Complexion Equalizer by chance; someone left it on The Frisky “free table,” an area for discarded books [Anyone want some erotica? -- Editor Amelia] and unused cosmetics. It was kind of fate that the little pink box caught my eye because my skin has been looking a little blotchy lately. After about three weeks of use, it’s helping to even out my skin tone.
