I went to Sephora AGAIN yesterday to try something new for my oily t-zone area. Are you all getting sick of hearing about this yet? Haha, I hope not!
But in all seriousness, I find it weird that with all the medical and beauty advancements we have, there still is not an acceptable remedy to the shine factor. It’s funny talking with the Sephora employees who mention all these different primers and mattifyers and I’ve tried most of them with no success! And when I check the product reviews over at Makeup Alley, it seems like the majority of women experience the same problem.
So here’s my question since I am not a dermalogical genius and maybe some of you are. The Sephora gal asked about my skincare routine and after I shared she asked if I applied moisturizer after at night. Which I don’t because my thought was that more moisture would make my face even oiler after I get ready in the morning. She noticed my cheeks are dry but my t-zone gets oily after a few hours and she said moisturizing at night would help my skin achieve a moisture balance. She said the middle of the night is the most drying time for skin and if it is not properly moisturized then it may over-compensate the next day by producing more oil. Does this sound right? Regardless, I thought trying this would not hurt so I purchased Boscia’s Recharging Night Moisture. It’s a lightweight, natural, botanical-based lotion that will be good for my sensitive skin. We’ll see how it goes!
