The number one complaint about summer skin care products is that they create that oily appearance. We all enjoy a dewy glow, but no one wants an oily shine, which is more likely to occur in the hot and humid summer months. Fortunately, there are a few steps we can take to decrease that oily appearance and some skin care products to help us win the battle against oily skin!
- First, you need to wash your face with a gentle cleanser every day. Don’t fall into the lazy category with your makeup removal and face washing routine. You want to clean your face gently, with soothing ingredients like aloe and natural cleansers like lemon. Our Clere Radiance Oil Control Beauty Bar cleanses, purifies and soothes with natural ingredients like lemon to cleanse and aloe vera to soothe. You’ll enjoy the softness your skin has after washing with our beauty bar compliments of our special Super Fruit Serum.
- Secondly, the often overlooked step of applying toner can be crucial to fighting oily build up. It’s pretty easy to see if you simply wash and follow with toner applied with a cotton ball. The cotton ball will show you all the oily residue your washing left behind. Toners can also be great for minimizing appearance of pores and restoring skin’s natural balance. Our Oil Control Toner has special ingredients like Super Fruit Serum and Vitamin B3 to help even out your skin tone.
- Last, but not least, you need a well-balanced moisturizer that nourishes your skin without leaving a greasy feel. Our Oil Control Vanishing Cream nourishes skin with Vitamin E and Super Fruit Serum, and contains Vitamin B3 to help even out skin tone. Other than its nourishing and skin-tone enhancing benefits, our vanishing cream also contains micro-sponges that absorb oil, providing oil and shine control for 12 hours!
Keep in mind that your face is what everyone sees first it’s important to protect it with great skin care products AND sunscreen every day! Dermatologists recommend wearing a wide-brim hat and sunscreen with high SPF for all outdoor activities and don’t forget to reapply if you are sweating or swimming.
