Shine Free

backstage modelBeauty dilemma: shiny complexion by noon

The cause: late summer humidity and hot temperatures that feel more July than September

The expert: Sara Whittaker, Clinique National Education Manager

The diagnosis: “Oil spreads more easily in warmer temperatures and oil that might have stayed under the surface of the skin with heat and humidity flows easily through the pores and mixes with perspiration creating a shiny, greasy feel to the skin.”

backstage modelsCustom solution: “Begin with a thorough cleansing without stripping or drying the skin with a liquid soap designed specifically for oily skin.  Next, use a liquid exfoliant such as a Clarifying Lotion twice a day (or more if you feel like you would like to wash your face more often.) I recommend using an Acne Solutions Oil Controlling Mask as a weekly treatment to absorb excess oil and keep pores clean and clear.  A Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector will create a natural matte finish that lasts up to eight hours and is sweat and humidity resistant.  It’s a favourite of pro makeup artists as it can be worn under or over makeup – perfect for a late afternoon oil spill.”

Final word of advice: “Adjust your beauty routine based on the weather but overdo it. Oil free moisturizers and oil absorbing makeup should do the trick.”
