Let’s face it: when it comes to mattifying products, you have tons of options – probably too many! How are you supposed to decide on one when there are pressed powder compacts, translucent finishing dusts, matte foundations and blotting papers? Well, it’s easier than you think! Just skip them all in favor of the only product you really need to fix the issue.
What is it? An anti-shine mattifier. According to The Beauty Department, tapping a little bit of this product onto the shiny areas of your face works a whole lot better than caking on powder, wiping your face with tissues or blotting with papers, and it’s totally undetectable.
So what products should you try? How about Murad – Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15, which is clinically proven to reduce shine on contact and prevents oil from building up by 78 percent over an eight-hour period. Willow bark extract also helps to treat blemishes and clear up problem skin. It even has SPF 15 for sun damage protection!
Or, try BABOR – Skinovage PX Perfect Combination Daily Mattifying Cream, a balancing cream that’s perfect for combination or oily skin. Lentil extracts and rich starch help mattify your visage while milk peptides, glutamic acid, cysteine and vitamins regulate oil production by up to 50 percent and help reduce the appearance of pores. Skin-softening pistachio and jojoba oils are also part of the deal, while vitamin E protects against damage from free radicals. This product does it all!
