About Anti-Shine Lotions And Moisturizers
A shiny or oily face isn’t the ideal look for a man. It makes you look dirty, unkept, nervous, unconfident, unattractive – among other things.
If your face is a little slick or light recognizably reflects off of it, you’re not alone; it’s more common than you imagine.
If you have oily skin, it’s caused by an overproduction of sebum, a naturally occurring oil that’s released by the skin’s sebaceous glands. Excessive sebum production can be caused by hormonal shifts, changes in temperature or humidity, medications, bacteria, alcohol, or your genetic makeup.
If your skin tends to produce excess oil or has an unappealing shine, how do you combat it?
One way is by using an anti-shine lotion. Read on to learn more…
What Is An Anti-shine Lotion?
An anti-shine lotion is a facial moisturizer that helps control your face’s oily appearance while leaving it looking matte, clean, and fresh. Products containing mattifying ingredients are helpful for people whose oily or acne-prone skin causes their faces to look shiny. They work wonders for people with over-productive sebaceous glands or have a little extra shine to their skin.
In addition to hiding pores, matiffying lotion’s primary purpose is to hydrate your skin while reducing its shininess. Antioxidants like vitamins C and E are sometimes included in this moisturizer to help protect the skin and restore its youthful appearance.
Some products also contain acne treatments like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid to eliminate existing pimples and stop new ones from forming.
Astringents are a common ingredient in anti-shine products because they control sebum production and tighten the skin. In doing so, it removes the shiny sheen and leaves behind a smooth, matte finish.
While talc is another option for oil control, the active ingredients in mattifying creams are much more effective. Because of this, you can apply them once and let them last all day.
Why Use An Anti-shine Moisturizer?
Women have makeup products like powders, foundations, bronzers, and primers to reduce the shine on their faces. They have various tools at their disposal to maintain a matte, flawless look.
For men like us, you can choose to use makeup, but, who really wants to? Unless you want to add an extra half hour to get ready and carry around a makeup bag, it’s not the ideal solution.
In addition, since men’s skin is naturally oilier than women’s, some makeup products may not be as effective.
That’s why, we at d*shine have worked diligently with professional chemists to formulate a single anti-shine moisturizer that does everything from mattifying your skin, to hydrating it, and control your oily, shiny appearance.
