Didn’t you think that oily skin was something teenagers eventually outgrew? Like rebellion. And boy bands.
Yet here I am with a too-shiny face, still waiting…
The summer heat (not to mention this sticky Easy Coast humidity) only makes the issue worse — which can be a nightmare for not only our complexions, but also our makeup longevity.

Origins Zero Oil™ Deep Pore Cleanser
It all starts with how you clean your skin, and using an oil-regulating cleanser is step one. I especially love the Origins deep-pore cleanser because it uses natural ingredients like palmetto, cooling mint, and salicylic acid to get rid of excess oil without over-drying.
That's the big thing to keep in mind — if you dry out your skin, your skin will produce more oil. So you want to find something that removes the extra
