You Asked, We Answered: How To Tackle A Shiny Nose

Nothing aggravates oily skin more than summer’s heat and humidity. As a girl who is constantly feeling like she needs to powder her nose every hour, I can totally empathize with Natalie J.
She writes, "My nose gets really oily no matter what. I've tried so many over-the-counter products and nothing works. Any suggestions?"
More than just a suggestion, I have the weapon of mass destruction against shiny skin. It has completely changed the way I tackle shine, and I’m confident that it will make all the difference for Natalie and anybody else who deals with overactive sebum glands.
If you don't have oily skin but just get get shiny around your nose, it doesn’t make much sense to slather on a mattifying primer or dust your entire face in powder. After much trial and error over the years, I’ve learned that the secret to keeping grease in check is Jouer’s Essential Matte Touch.
The product is unique in that it’s a completely sheer skin perfector with a solid silicone/gel texture. It won’t settle in to fine lines or cake like a powder, and it’s a cinch to apply with your fingers. Just dab it over your trouble spots before applying makeup and it'll zap your shine without needing powder or blotting papers. Your skin is left looking flawless with diminished pores and without any build-up. The slim case makes it easily transportable for touchups, and you can apply it over makeup as well. It’s a miracle worker when it comes to combating afternoon shine.
Jouer Essential Matte Touch, $26, available at Jouer
