Conquering Summer Shine: Hacks for Oily Skin

Summer can be a dream – picnics in the park, outdoor concerts – but for our oily-skinned friends, it can be a greasy, shiny nightmare.

Picture this: you’re meeting a friend for a walk in the park, looking radiant. But then the humidity hits, and suddenly, you’re a disco ball under the midday sun. Not cute.

Fear not, oily warriors! Because here’s the key to keeping your skin shine-free and fabulous all summer long. It’s all about embracing the chill.

Heat + Humidity = Oil City

First, let’s get sciency (it’s a word) for a sec. Hot weather? Your body ramps up sweat production to cool down. But guess what else gets stimulated by that heat wave? Your sebaceous glands – the little factories that pump out oil to keep your skin hydrated. Now, combine that with humidity, and your skin basically gets trapped in a sauna, creating the perfect breeding ground for excess oil.

The Fridge is Your New BFF

So, how do we combat this oily onslaught? Enter your trusty refrigerator! Here’s the lowdown:

Chilled Skincare: Pop your favourite gel-based cleanser, toner, and moisturizer in the fridge for a pre-application cool down. That refreshing tingle helps constrict pores and reduce oil flow. Think of it as a mini spa treatment every morning and night! You can find the cutest cosmetic fridges on Amazon that will fit right on your counter.

Ice Rolling: This may sound a little out there, but trust me, it’s a game-changer. If you don’t have an ice roller (we love the one from The Skinny Confidential) wrap a few ice cubes in a washcloth and gently roll it over your face after cleansing. It de-puffs, minimizes pores, and reduces oil production – all in under a minute!

Bonus Tip: Ditch the heavy creams and switch to lightweight products. Think mattifying lotions and hydrating serums – they’ll keep your skin happy and shine-free.

Remember, darlings, a little chill can go a long way. So, embrace the fridge, befriend the ice cubes, and conquer that summer oil with a fabulous routine!

P.S. If you’re looking to chillout this summer make sure you check out our Ice Queen Facial! Book your appointment and let’s get your summer glow on (the non-greasy kind, of course).
