If you sweat easily or have a naturally oily complexion, you know that hot weather can be challenging for your look! While we love beautiful glowy skin, there’s a fine line between looking radiantly dewy and looking like a hot greasy mess. Here are some helpful tips to keep your shininess under control as the weather heats up!

Get a Matte Primer
Makeup artist Napoleon Perdis is famous for saying, “Not to prime is a crime,” and when it comes to keeping oily skin matte, we couldn’t agree more! Try bareMinerals Prime Time Oil-Control Foundation Primer, Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, or Benefit The Pore-fessional, all highly-rated secret weapons against shine. Follow up the primer with an oil-control foundation like Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation and/or matte powder like Estee Lauder Double Matte Oil-Control Pressed Powder for a soft makeup look.
Keep Oil Absorbing Sheets in Your Purse
As a hot day progresses, you may notice your face start to look a little greasier. Dab away the shine with a classic favorite, Clean & Clear’s Oil Absorbing Sheets. These little miracle workers, absorb excess oil without smudging your makeup or leaving behind a powdery residue. The little pack is small enough to fit in your purse or pocket, so it’s perfect for when you are on-the-go.
Keep Hair Looking Fresh with Dry Shampoo
If you have oily hair, you may find yourself shampooing more than usual to keep your hair looking clean in the summer. However, there are some days when you may be in a hurry and just don’t have the time to wash your hair. This is when a good dry shampoo comes in handy! Instantly refresh your hair from looking greasy with options like Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo or Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo.
