Struggling to keep annoying shine at bay on these super hot summer days? Try out these new, oil fighting heroes!

As if you couldn’t tell by stepping out the door, we’re facing an insane heat wave right now. But, take a look at my skin and you’d have no idea. Why? Am I genetically blessed with perfect, pore-less, shine-free skin like Leighton Meester? Heck no! It’s because I’ve been using Origins’ new Zero Oil skincare line. I’m usually quite greasy, which I’ve learned can be genetic (thanks, Mom!) or because of the weather. Usually, around 3pm I am in desperate need of an oil absorbing sheet or a powder touch up. But, not anymore. I’ve been using the Origins Zero Oil Deep pore cleanser with Saw Palmetto & Mint, ($18.50) every morning and night. It’s truly amazing. It has a bracing, energizing peppermint smell plus ingredients that really work. Saw palmetto and kelp work together to inhibit excess oil production while salicylic acid helps slough off dead skin cells. You feel an immediate difference in your skin – it feels super clean and my pores seem smaller and less dingy. I’ve been following that cleanser with the Origins Zero Oil Oil-free lotion with Saw Palmetto & Mint, ($25). It’s a super lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves a nice, matte finish. I am not exaggerating when I say that this new regimen has turned me (finally!) into a non-greasy person. The great thing is that it’s not super drying either so all skin types, except perhaps super dry people, can benefit from this regimen especially in these sticky summer months. Also, although Origins doesn’t claim this product helps acne specifically, I have noticed that my pores are less clogged and my breakouts have been kept to a minimum.

I have used the Made from Earth Green Tea Cleanser since I was a teenager, when my mom bought it for me. Over the years I’ve tried many, many other cleansers and I always come back to the one from Made from Earth. So, now it is the only one I ever buy.

You can use it two different ways, either by massaging it over your face and then wiping it off with tissue or a wahcloth or rinsing it off with water. It is gentle on my dry sensitive skin and leaves it feeling soft and moisturized. It also removes my makeup, including eyeliner, mascara (unless it’s waterproof), eye shadow, concealer, and face powder, with no irritation. It is very reasonably priced and a bottle lasts me a long time, usually at least 3 months.

I have recommended it to many people who comment on how great my skin looks and feels. I can’t say enough good things about Made from Earth – so glad I found it!
