Shiny skin

Hi mads,

When I have cleansed my skin and put on make-up, my skin becomes really shiny during the day and it doesn’t look nice – I’m 46.

I want to have matte skin, so I cleanse it every morning and evening.

Should I use cleansing products for greasy skin (now I use for combination skin). I don’t have any blemishes.

Best regards,

Dear Kisser,

Thank you so much for your question. I am happy to give you advice and guidance.

First of all, I would like to emphasize that you do not have to use a special cleanser for greasy skin. A cleansing product should always be very mild regardless of the different skin types that people have.

Try Perfect Skin Face Wash.

Regarding your shiny skin, I would recommend you to use a light foundation with sunscreen during the day, instead of a regular crème. Alternatively, you can use a day crème with a slight tint.

If you have skin that easily becomes shiny and greasy, your skin has a tendency to produce a lot of tallow/grease. This is in the genes of the skin and cannot be corrected with a crème. Therefore, a lot of people with greasy skin choose not to use a moisturizer. (Please note that the skin should still have a light sunscreen applied – for example use a powder with sunscreen).

I hope you can use my help and I wish you a very merry Christmas!
