OMG! Could it get any hotter? We’ve got the best tricks to bust those blemishes and keep your skin lookin’ crystal clear, even if you’re sweating up a storm. Our tips ensure your complexion will stay extra cool, despite the crazy temps.
Washing your face every morning and before you hit the sack is a must. Search for a product that’ll help control oily skin—it’s especially crucial during the scorching summer days. We like how this cleanser contains a hint o’ mint, which is naturally cooling.
Always opt for oil-free products when your skin is getting a li’l greasy. Opt for oil-free versions of your faves (like sunscreen, makeup and moisturizers). And avoid going overboard with the makeup—now’s the time to rock the natural look.
Heading somewhere H-O-T? Pop some toner or blotting sheets in your bag. They’ll help get rid of any extra oil and keep your skin looking amazing. Don’t tone every 10 minutes, but once in the afternoon is A-OK. Then, reapply sunscreen.
Once a week, use a mask to zap excess moisture. Exfoliating or washing your skin too much actually leads to more oil, but a weekly mask can be super-effective for squashing shine.
