Summer Shine Control

Banish acne — and a shiny forehead — with these oil-controlling products.

Dara Adeeyo


When it comes to my face, an oily complexion is my main concern. Plagued by acne and well, an embarrassingly shiny forehead, I spent years searching for the perfect oily skin regimen. I've finally found it, and it involves these winning products.

Clean & Clear Instant Oil-Absorbing Sheets ($4.50) — Perfect for blotting oil that has surfaced during the day, these sheets are tiny and super-portable. Since the papers are unscented, they're unlikely to irritate sensitive skin.

Olay Shine Control Lathering Cleanser ($8) — Don't let this silver, creamy formula scare you. With consistent use, you will be able to control your oily skin. Bonus points for its magical, makeup removing powers.

OC Eight Professional Mattifying Gel ($37) — Using a mattifier before you apply moisturizer and makeup will provide shine-free skin for up to eight hours. This one contains micro-particles that trap up to six times their own volume in oil.

How do you control your oily skin?
