Oily skin is a bane to every bride. After the make-up is set in the early morning, it takes just a few more hours of photoshoot or on the actual day, for the face to look like a frying pan. My skin is super oily and since eons ago, I have been always on the lookout for good oil control products. Very few make the mark, to be honest.

A colleague recommended FANCL Cleartune Oil Control Powder to me and since then, I am addicted. It is used after application of the sunblock and comes with a mirror. The powder is greenish but will not make your skin look green. In fact, it can even the reddish patches on the skin to give a more even tone.
"Each powder particle contains countless minute holes which enable absorption of oil & dirt. Only mildly acidic, it is free of preservatives, sterilizers, petroleum surfactants, fragrances and mineral oil."

After the make-up artist has set the make-up for the day in the early morning, chances are the oil will start to show and make-up might even run a bit after a few hours. Touch-up with MAC Blot Powder. It does not add any other colour to the skin. "Blot Powder contains Mica and Silica to adsorb excess oils and reduce shine on the skin's surface." This product had 623 reviews with 81% indicating they would buy it again. Not bad.

For more extreme measures, consider Mesobotox. The Sloane Clinic is one of the certified aesthetic clinics to offer it.

"Microinjections of very small doses of botox with generous doses of vitamins and hyaluronic acid are distributed superficially all over the face to diminish fine wrinkles without muscle paralysis and to improve sheen of the skin. Patients report that their pores are visibly smaller, their skin less oily and more translucent after the treatment! Patients also feel that their face looks "lifted" & firmer and their skin texture more refined after a session of this innovative treatment. "
