The larger the pores the more oil is produced and released, especially in the summer months as in high-humidity areas. The look and results: shiny, greasy skin and break outs. If you add makeup: clay face.
However, the catch is that even oily prone skin needs moisturizing. So, you have to choose a light moisturizer which will also help control oil production and will mattify your skin.
I came upon Clinique Pore Refining Stay-Mate Hydrator this summer and it did the job. I have normal-oily skin and spent time this summer in both: very dry and humid areas. This light moisturizer helped control oil and dryness. Plus, it kept my makeup in place all day. This is a must for me!
Try it and let me know how it went! Enjoy!
