As the day progresses though, we begin to notice an extra gleam on our face.
Side Beauty Note: The matte trend is on its peak this season, no wonder! Here are the ways to achieve the freedom from oil.
Blotting paper are oil-absorbing sheets that are convenient and portable. The thin papers absorb excess oil without smudging makeup.
Mistakes happen though and we forget to buy some or bring it with us wherever we go but the t-zone area does not aim to be our friend.
Here are some quick, cost effective alternatives when you’re in need. They all have one how-to: place on your skin, gently pat with your fingers. To avoid smearing your makeup, do not rub or wipe these oil-absorbing alternatives.
Notebook Paper: Who knew? Maybe you’re in class or at work but this item should always be within reach. Make sure it is the non-glossy kind.
Receipts: These can be found in your wallet, purse, car, counter or whenever you make a purchase! The matte ones are better absorbers than the shiny looking receipts.
Brown Napkins: Usually found in fast food locations or the food court, you can quickly remove the oil from your t-zone during your lunch break.
Toilet Paper: The thin ones, usually single-ply, are found in public restrooms and do the job quickly.
Toilet Seat Covers: It almost looks like the oil-absorbing sheets! We won’t tell on you, don’t worry.
