Manage oily skin

During summer, my skin seems to be a lot oilier. Is there anything I can do to counteract this?

Some skin types may seem oilier in summer, but it may be that you are perspiring more, which can make oily-skin problems seem worse. Be careful not to over-cleanse in a bid to mop up the oil, as you run the risk of dehydrating the skin, which then further stimulates oil glands.
Try mattifying products that help regulate oil flow. Avoid powder and heavy foundations, which can become clogged and patchy when the heat is on. Instead, use a tinted moisturiser with sunblock, for a sheer, natural cover and oil-blotting papers through the day to banish shine.
