Summer heat can quickly transform a dewy complexion, making it appear more greasy than glowy. For those hot summer days, Eminence Organics has a few tips and tricks to help you keep your oily skin in check. We laid out steps 1 through 3 in Part 1 - here is Part 2 of our advice for controlling an oily complexion during summer.
Eminence Organics tips To Transform Your Skin From Summer Grease To Summer Glow: Part 2
4. AVOID COCKTAILS AND SPICY FOODS
The saying is true, “You are what you eat” - and during hot summer months, cocktails and spicy foods can wreak havoc on your complexion. These raise your heat index, causing you to feel warmer and perspire more. While sweat isn’t inherently a bad thing, it can lead to clogged pores if it settles for too long on your skin’s surface. The result? Skin that looks more shiny than dewy. Instead, reach for foods that are high in Vitamin A and slow oil production, like carrots, cantaloupe and spinach (Allure).
5. DON’T FORGET TO EXFOLIATE
Exfoliating is an important part of any skin care routine, especially if your skin is oily. Regular exfoliation helps to slough off dead skin cells that have accumulated on your skin’s surface, clogging your pores and dulling your complexion. We recommend Eminence Organics Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant, which includes rice flour and adzuki powder to buff and smooth your skin’s texture, as well as stone crop to hydrate and moisturize. With its light fizzing action, this daily-use exfoliant gently removes impurities for a perfectly polished complexion.
6. TREAT YOUR SKIN TO A MASK
Dr. Oz advises applying a clay mask once or twice a week to help de-grease summer skin. Eminence Organics Balancing Masque Duo contains kaolin clay and charcoal to draw out oil, dirt and bacteria that cause excess sebum, as well as buchu leaf extract to decrease oil production and mattify the skin’s appearance. Add the moisturizing Pomelo Cheek Treatment to restore skin’s moisture and minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Adding moisture to greasy skin may seem counterintuitive, but keeping skin hydrated is key to maintaining its balance and keeping oil production under control. If you wonder, “Should you use moisturizer with oily skin?” The answer is a resounding yes. If you’re after the best moisturizer for oily skin, we recommend Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer. This beauty editor favorite includes cucumber juice, tea tree and willow bark (a natural astringent) to tone and shrink the look of pores, leaving you with soft - never shiny - skin.
