Oil Control Tip for Hot/Humid Weather

It’s hot and sticky, and that make-up just seems to run. It’s summer!

If you haven’t tried the Shiseido oil blotting papers, they’re brilliant and work so much better than regular powder. The papers come in a case about the size of a business card, and you can even take them out and stuff a few in the pocket of your jeans.

There is a very fine rice powder on one side of the paper and so you just blot and go. It avoids the messy build up of repeated powder applications. You can find them online or at department stores like Nordstrom.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
