“My skin is oily, so moisturising in the morning will make me look shiny all day”.
Fact: If your skin is oily by nature and even more so in summer, trying to “dry it out” by skipping your morning moisturiser is likely to make the situation worse. Sebum glands tend to respond to the perception of dryness by producing more oil – making you look shinier still. So instead of making moisturiser your summertime enemy, make sure your day-time moisturiser is Ph Balanced and working in harmony with your skin to slow sebum production.
