If you want to look shine-free this summer, it’s important you regulate your beauty routine. Although blotting paper and mattifying primers help, there is a lot more you can do to prevent a midday shiny face.

Keep these pointers in mind the next time you want to buy new products:

Use an oil regulating cleanser
A cleanser with ingredients like salicylic acid or purifying clay help clear pores and control oiliness.

Use a toner
Since harsh ingredients get rid of natural oils and cause your skin to produce extra oil, use a natural toner with tea tree oil or calendula extracts.

Clay mask
Use a clay-based mask once a week to shrink pores and regulate oil control.

Not only does it get rid of the dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin, but it also makes the oil-controlling products you apply afterwards more effective.

Look for a translucent primer that is suited for your skin type to use under makeup or on its own.
