Shiny Face Solutions

Host Rebecca Spera says there's nothing worse than seeing a photo of yourself or looking in the mirror and seeing a shiny, greasy face. It happens to all of us, especially during those warm, humid months. So, she's sharing her quick fixes for shiny skin.

Rebecca's Shiny Face Solutions:
  • Squeeze lemon juice on a cotton swab and rub all over face once a week, like you would a toner. The vitamin C in the lemon will help clear up excess oil.
  • Saturate a makeup sponge in water and then dab it in Milk of Magnesia. Apply to your face before applying makeup to keep shine at bay.
  • Talc is great for our skin and won't clog pores. Grab a big fluffy makeup brush and swipe baby powder over your face to absorb any oil before applying makeup.
  • Mix a sprinkle of cornstarch in with your foundation to keep the consistency matte.
  • After applying foundation, take a translucent powder and add a thick coat down CENTER of your face. Apply cheek and contour color, and then brush out the powder. Your makeup will stay put!
  • Throughout the day, if you get shiny, and you don't have powder on you, rub your finger in a stick of deodorant and apply to T-zone area.
  • If you don't have blotting paper while you're out and about, grab a toilet paper cover and blot your skin with that. The material will also absorb that oil!
  • For all of these shiny skin solutions, if you have sensitive skin, look for products for sensitive skin or avoid altogether.
