Almost everybody has a cell phone. I guess it stands to reason that they are all quick to click a photo without any warning and then post it to Facebook within nanoseconds. If I get caught in the frame, 99.9% of the time I look a bit disheveled and I hate to say it…shiny. My combination skin seems to be screaming oil slick when the flash clicks. I know these candid photos are not portrait material. But, I’d really like to look a little more comfortable. Now I do have a quick and easy facial fix with Day by Day’s blotting papers!
If you’ve never heard of blotting papers they are generally used to “blot” excessive oils from your face…without disrupting your makeup. If you are familiar with them, then you know ordinary ones can leave your face with the same oily sheen before and after. Finding a quality, premium grade natural pulp fiber sheet is key. Here’s my latest beauty tip: Day by Day facial blotting papers actually absorb the extra oil with just a gentle press against your face.
My forehead is my nemesis…in size and in shine. Here’s the proof. Promise I wasn’t just working out or running a marathon. You can obviously see the difference between the new sheet and the used sheet. Yep, those are my fingerprints in oil on the right. Uck. Obviously, I don’t wear much makeup on my forehead, but I do apply some foundation…and there isn’t even a hint of it on the blotting paper.
Day by Day Beauty blotting papers come in a 2 package set with 100 oil blotting sheets in each packet. It’s incredibly handy to have one stashed in your purse for work and school outings and to have one at home too. You can find these photo-enhancing makeup protectors on Amazon and they ship free with Amazon Prime membership!
