If your skin runs to oily, then you’ll know that the issue is exacerbated in summer; as the heat rises, so does your skin’s ability to produce oil making for shine when you really do not want it. Decleor’s Matifying Lotion is specially formulated for over active oily skin and contains ylang ylang ad melaleuca essential oils along with witch hazel and mint to refresh skin and discourage oil secretions. My tip is to decant some into a small size bottle (try Marks & Spencer or Muji for a good selection) and keep it in your handbag for on the go freshen ups that not only banish oil but also revive and rebalance the complexion.
