6 Mattifying Products for Oily SkinAugust 10, 2021
Whether your skin is naturally oily all the time or only when it’s exposed to heat and humidity, a good mattifying product is likely a firm fixture in your beauty arsenal. Achieving a natural-looking matte complexion is easy with the right products. Ahead, we rounded up six favorites, from oil-free toners to primers that will help you kiss excess oil goodbye.
Instantly reduce the look of pores and fine lines with this blurring primer stick. The lightweight formula absorbs excess oil and the precise applicator allows you easily target shiny spots — even over makeup.
Designed to visibly reduce excess oil on the skin’s surface, this non-drying formula is made with imperata cylindrica root extract and antarcticine to soothe and hydrate skin as well as gently remove any remaining residue, dirt and oil without stripping your skin of vital moisture.
Controlling shine shouldn’t mean you have to strip your skin of hydration. Made with salicylic acid to prevent excess oil and limonette to provide your skin with essential antioxidants, this lotion provides eight hours of hydration while mattifying the skin and reducing the appearance of pores.
Available in 40 shades, this lightweight, oil-free foundation provides a naturally matte, medium coverage finish thanks to a micro-powder technology that blurs pores and reduces shine.
Unlike some sunscreens that can leave behind a greasy residue, this one from SkinCeuticals boasts a matte finish, thanks to its oil-absorbing base and weightless mousse texture. Apply the formula liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply at least every two hours.
For an ultra-matte finish, this setting spray is a no-brainer. This oil-absorbing kaolin clay-infused formula has a flash-proof finish, controls shine throughout the day and helps makeup stay put for up to 16 hours.
