MOST WOMEN HAVE DEALT WITH THE HEADACHE OF OILY SKIN THEIR ENTIRE LIVES. SOME OF US HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN TO GET RID OF THE OIL OR "SEBUM".  FACT: NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU WILL NEVER COMPLETELY REMOVE OIL FROM YOUR SKIN. WHY? OILY SKIN IS HEREDITARY.

WE LOVE OILS AS LONG AS IT'S NOT ON OUR FACE! AS THE WARMER MONTHS APPROACH WE GET QUESTIONS LIKE "WHY ARE YOU SO SHINEY?" OR "IS THAT SWEAT?" WHEN YOU GIVE THEM THAT LOOK LIKE... "NOT TODAY".

HERE ARE 7 THINGS YOU CAN DO DAILY AND WEEKLY TO KICK THAT DRENCHED LOOK.

7 STEPS TO MANAGING OILY SKIN

1. CLEANSE- PERHAPS THIS IS THE MOST VITAL STEP OF ALL. CLEANSING DAILY REDUCES THE CHANCES OF CLOGGING YOUR PORES.

2. USE TONER- DIRECTLY AFTER YOU CLEANSE YOU MUST USE A TONER. IT BALANCES YOUR SKINS pH REMOVING LEFT OVER OILS , RESIDUE FROM THE CLEANSER, AND PRODUCTS WORN PRIOR TO CLEANSING.

3. EXFOLIATE- REMOVE DEAD SKIN CELLS. THEY WILL LIVE ON YOUR FACE IF YOU DON'T. EXFOLIATING PROMOTES SKIN RENEWAL. DO THIS NO MORE THAN 2-3 TIMES A WEEK.

4. MOISTURIZE! - JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE OILY SKIN DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD NOT DO THIS STEP DAILY. OK, IT MAKES SOME OF US LOOK SUPER OILY, USE AN OIL FREE MOISTURIZER. GO EASY ON THOSE HOT SPOTS OR (T-ZONE). BEAUTI TIP: ADD A MATTIFYING PRIMER IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO WEAR FOUNDATION AFTERWARDS.

5. MASKS-  A CLAY MASK WILL DO THE TRICK. THEY REMOVE EXCESS OIL AND UNCLOG YOUR PORES.

6. BLOT FILM- THROW A PACK IN YOUR BEAUTI BAG. USE THEM FOR TOUCH-UPS THROUGHOUT THE DAY. USE A COLORLESS MATTIFYING POWDER AFTERWARDS.

7. EAT BETTER- EATING FOODS THAT ARE HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS, AND OMEGA-3 ARE BEST FOR KEEPING YOUR OILY SITUATION UNDER CONTROL. TRY LEAFY GREENS AND CITRUS FRUITS.

THERE YOU HAVE IT!
