Perhaps the holy grail of mattifying, a priming potion is often the remedy of gals with oily skin. Apart from being an instant fix to oily skin, a silicon based primer for your T-zone and an oil free cream based one for the rest of your face seals in the oil and helps you achieve a friendly-matte finish. Mix primers that are both mild on your skin and doesn’t cause you too much breakouts after.

4. Lemon water toner

While we all know that drinking lemon water is great for us to get rid of our impurities internally, you need to get it on your skin as well. Lemon water is the best for cleansing oily skin with its acid-removing effects on your pores. Make it yourself by simply mixing a few drops of lemon juice with cucumber extract and enjoy the cooling effect from the natural ingredients instantly. Be mindful because the acidity level of the toner can cause a tingling effect and the results will last you for at least a good 4 hours.
