Teenagers are not the only ones that have oily skin. As we age, hormonal levels fluctuate which causes changes in our skin. Some women experience more oil production later in life as hormones change entering perimenopause and menopause. With onset of hot flashes, an oily complexion is only accentuated. Although hormonal transitions are unavoidable, here are a few of our highest rated mattifying moisturizers that will help combat unwanted shine.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion is a top seller addressing anti-aging concerns while taming excess oil. The lotion is infused with retinol and apple stem cells to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Pore size and shine are also greatly reduced.
L’Occitane Red Rice Ultra Matte Face Fluid rebalances oil production with red rice vinegar, zinc, red rice powder. Excess shine is reduced immediately and oil production lessens with continued use.
Another great option is Vichy Normaderm Pro Mat which instantly mattifies the skin while providing UV protection and acts as a great make up base.
