What can stop my skin from looking shiny during the summer?

asked
During the summer my face turns very oily, giving me a shiny face which is very unattractive. Are there any products to prevent my skin from doing this? I would not want to take out my mirror every 5 minutes to check if I am oily or not. Then when i try to wipe the oil away some make up goes with it. Please help.

I'd definitely store blotting papers in your purse and use a lighter foundation - I like mineral foundations if you haven't tried them yet.

Oil blotting wipes work wonders, and wearing just a little bit of powder will help as well because it will absorb the oils.

You need to make sure that you use a moisturizer that is oil free and a cleanser as well. In morning and night. You can also get Blotting papers which absorb excess oil from you're skin! And if you want to wear make up use one that is oil free again. I would recommend either a powder (bare minerals) but if you really want a heavier coverage then I'd recommend a mousse (Maybelline)

I would also recommend Jane Iredale's SPF-Me 30, mineral foundation. It doubles as a makeup; while protecting you from the sun's harmful rays. It contains a fine Indian clay that really keeps your face dry. I go hiking in the middle of a hot day and I wear this. Then when I get back to my car & look in my rearview mirror, my face is DRY.

They carry a product on Walmart.com called Neat3B Face Saver. It is especially for people with extra oily skin to wear during the Summer. Wash your face & let it dry and then apply two thin layers of this & that should do the trick.

Use foundation primer before applying your makeup and carry oil-blotting papers with you. Clean and Clear Oil Blotters are perfect for touch-ups and they won't take your makeup off. You can pick them up at the drugstore. Use an oil-free foundation such as Maybelline SuperStay, Lancome Teint Idole Ultra or BareMinerals. Add a matte powder on top for extra staying power. Philosophy makes a product called "Never Let Them See You Shine" that's a mattifier to help block out shine. I have it and it works pretty well with eliminating shine. Hope this helps!
