How to Get a Shine Free Face

karyng replenishing cleanser

Wash your face with a high quality cleanser...We've all been guilty of washing ourr faces with whatever's on the counter. Don't tell me you haven't grabbed a bar of soap in a pinch. Your face deserves better. I can tell you what happens to me when I do that. My skin instantly feels dry, tight and has a shiny appearance. That is NOT the look I'm going for. So, a face cleanser like Karyng Replenishing Cleanser is my first line of defense when I'm trying to keep a shine free face because it cleans without stripping! So, it's soft, not deprived of all its moisture.

Don't forget the primer...Sure, you probably moisturize, but do you use a primer?? If you want a shine free face, you're going to want to pick one up. I don't have much time to get ready in the morning these days. My kids bell schedule changed, so they're starting school even earlier. That means my morning beauty routine needs to be super streamlined. Thanks to primer, I'm currently loving Osmotics Inner Light Biodefense Primer, I can count on a filtered looking, youthful complexion. Then, all I have to do is thrown my hair in a braid, throw on some oversized sunnies, slick on some lipgloss and I look pretty pulled together for 7 AM! Haha!
