▶ Starting at your feet, brush in small circular motions. All skin brushing movements should be focused towards the heart, this will encourage blood circulation and lymphatic flow. Apply very light pressure in areas where skin is thin to avoid broken skin, rashes, or irritation.
In the hot summer months, humidity in the air causes skin to produce more oil, which results in a shiny complexion.
To keep shine under control try blotting papers. These thin sheets help to banish shine whithout disturbing makeup so skin will look fresh.
The Sephora Brand Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Papers are the best. Not only are they powder-free (most blotting papers are coated with powder, creating a “cakey” complexion) but they are made with Bamboo Charcoal, an ingredient that creates a high degree of absorbency and antibacterial properties.
Simply blot paper on the skin as needed and watch as oil dissipates, leaving skin matte. The bamboo charcoal ingredient make the papers gray in color, but leave no residue or tint on the face. The charcoal properties help to ward-off bacteria and keep pores clean.
The leopard-print packaging makes it easy to throw in your bag for on-the-go application. Don’t leave home without them.
