Skin savers

Skin savers

It is hot and humid outside, but your skin does not have to be an oily mess.

Just hydrate it well with a watery essence, serum, moisturiser and layer on a skin-mattifying product.

Then use smudge-proof cosmetics which will not budge. Give these a try.


Only powder the areas which get greasy easily, such as the T-zone and chin, so the make-up does not look flat.
