How To Get Rid of Shine

How To Get Rid of Shine

That midday shine is all too familiar for some of us. Whilst it’s desirable to want to achieve dewy skin or a subtle glow; oily skin and excess shine are just a complete a no-no.

Shiny skin usually starts to appear around the T-Zone area first, so that includes your forehead, nose and chin. Soon after, oily cheeks start to emerge, creating that melting make-up face look. No matter how natural a little bit of sweat, oil and shine can be, there’s nothing cute about looking like you’ve engaged in some extreme sports, or been sat in the sun for far too long- when you haven’t! Midday shine just simply isn’t a good look, and it needs to be banished.

The good news is that although it’s Summer and the temperatures are rising, there are many ways to combat this concern. Armed with the right products, you can powder, buff and mattify your way to a flawless, shine-free face.

So wave goodbye to that blotting tissue once and for all! Here’s our top 5  shine-busting products…
