In the summer, only wipes and matting powders can get rid of the intrusive greasy shine on the skin in seconds. And if everything is more or less clear with the first ones, then in the case of powders, the matter is not so simple.
Of course, by absorbing excess sebum that is actively secreted in the heat, this product evens out the skin tone and eliminates unpleasant reflections on the face. Loose powders should be applied with a fluffy brush, and creamy and compact powders should be applied with a sponge.
However, remember that when dealing with powders, it is very important not to overdo it. In addition to the fact that overdoses of the product can get stuck in the smallest wrinkles, thereby emphasizing them and making them more visible, they can also provoke the appearance of acne.
Remember: How do you usually use powder? As a general rule, on a hot day, you’ll take out the powder every hour or so to get rid of the oily sheen on your face. Most likely, you do not wash, but simply apply a new layer of powder on top of your makeup. This ritual is repeated about 8-9 times a day, and in the evening you have a “cake” on your face. Thus, due to the heat, sebum is secreted more actively than usual, you “cover” it with powder, and this story repeats itself several times a day.
It is not surprising that the process creates a greenhouse effect that provokes the appearance of comedones, acne breakouts and irritation. This is why you shouldn’t overdo it with powder: it’s better to use rice paper napkins for blotting, and ideally to clean the skin before applying a new layer of powder.
