2. Avoiding The Oil Spill Look During Summer
Do you know that for every 1℃ rise in skin temperature – our sebum secretion increases by 10% ! That explains why our skin is often oilier during summer.
To avoid my face from looking all greasy and oily, I use the Gatzmen Oil Tapping Powder. The Women’s version called the Ciracle Secret Sebum Powder is also available and basically both of them are the same product produced by Ciracle. The powder helps absorb excess sebum and keeps the skin soft. It’s small, portable making it convenient to bring around. Best thing is that it doesn’t whiten my skin and looks natural on my skin without making it look like an oil splash!
Another great product that helps absorbs impurities and the excess sebum that your skin secretes during summer is clay masks! Clay masks have absorbent, exfoliating and astringent properties. Not only does it benefit the skin by using capillary action to absorb substances on and beneath the skin’s surface such as sebum, bacteria, toxins and potential irritants from the skin – it can also exfoliate dead skin cells and blackheads without friction. Clay can absorb up to 200 times it’s weight in water! ( Source : here )
I bet many of you would think of the famous ‘Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask’ when you see the sentence ‘Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask’. At Wishtrend, we have a similar product from Ciracle that uses the volcanic ash from the Jeju Volcanoes. The mask contains 6700mg of Jeju volcanic ashes, a rare ingredient found only in Jeju Island, Korea and comes in a generous 135ml jar!
Let’s see what’s so special about the Jeju Volcanic Ash from the Innisfree website :
The other product is the Caolion Pore Minimizing Pack. CAOLION Pore Minimizing Pack controls the sebum secretion, absorbs skin wastes & makeup residues and removes dead skin cells.
