Don’t you hate when your face turns oily, greasy and shinny? It is even more annoying during the summer when you have makeup on! In today’s post I am going to talk about facial blotting paper and how it helps in keeping the skin matte through out the day.
Just like we use blotting paper to remove excess oil from our favourite fried foods, facial blotting paper does the same for our face.
If you wondering about the blotting paper uses or how to use blotting paper for face here is how; these facial sheets helps to control excess oil on our face and keeps it non greasy through out the day. It’s very simple to use these facial blotting papers, just pat your face with blotting paper when ever your feel your face looks oily. You can also pat your face with these sheets after applying creamy makeup to absorb excess oil from the product. This will help the makeup to stay put. For maximum gratification, pat the sheet around your nose and other oily areas of your face.
