7 Oily Skin Products For A Shine-Free Face

I wish more people would stop me in the street to say, "Wow! You've got quite a glow." But the reality is, my face looks like I've been in the kitchen frying chicken. And I have dear summer to thank for that glow.

I've managed to save face in the middle of the day by stealing extra toilet seat covers and pressing them against my greasy T-zone. However, there are subtle changes you can make to your daily skincare regimen to stave off the onset of oily skin.

Here are seven products to help you maintain a shine-free face all day long.

  • Face Wash
    Start your morning with a fresh face (literally!) by cleansing with this classic oil-free product. The salicylic acid will remove dirt while combating oil-buildup. Added bonus: the pink grapefruit scent will wake you up. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser. $6.97, Walmart.com
  • Facial Scrub
    For a deeper cleanse, wash your face two to three times a week with this non-abrasive gel scrub, which contains charcoal and salicylic acid. The skincare combination works to unclog pores, draw out oil and clear up your complexion. Garnier Clean + Blackhead Eliminating Scrub for Oily Skin. $5.99, Target.com
  • Moisturizer
    This lightweight moisturizer is HuffPost editor-tested and approved to keep oily skin from ruining your day...or your selfies. Bioelements Oil Control Mattifier. $36, Bioelements.com
  • Sunscreen
    Not wearing sunscreen shouldn't be an option for anyone, especially those with oily skin. This product is not only fragrance-free and oil-free, but it also offers broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. And the green tea extract soothes sensitive skin from sun exposure. Jan Marini Physical Protectant SPF 45. $49, Janmarini.com
  • Face Powder
    Thanks to its triple-milled formula, this face powder is perfect to wear alone or under your usual foundation. All it takes is just a few swipes to absorb excess oil and tackle that dreaded T-zone shine. Erno Laszlo Oil-Controlling Face Powder. $24, Neimanmarcus.com
  • Eye Makeup Primer
    I swear this primer is magic, as my eyeshadow NEVER creases when I prep my lids with this gem. Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion. $20, Ulta.com
  • Oil Blotting Sheets
    It's a good idea to keep these drugstore brand oil blotting sheets in your handbag all summer for whenever you need to freshen up throughout the day. They get the job done every single time. Clean & Clear Oil Blotter Sheets. $4.49, Target.com
