Want to get rid of excess sebum and skin imperfections? Start with the right skincare

No one likes the feeling of being greasy, but sometimes the soaring temperatures and humid weather can make us feel like we've been stuck dunking fries in a hot kitchen all day. That's when a good skincare regimen comes into play. Sisley has reinvented its Tropical Resins range and added three product to sufficiently hydrate and purify the skin, while remaining light and leaving the complexion looking fresh and matte. At the heart of the formula, benzoin extracts and incense and myrrh  — yes the same gifts given to an infant Jesus in the bible — to purify the skin and reduce redness. Other ingredients include burdock extract to balance the skin's microbial ecosystem and meadowsweet extract to stimulate its natural defenses.

The range includes a Gentle Cleansing Gel that respects the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) so that excess sebum is not produced. If you want a flawless complexion, religiously apply the range's Intensive Serum — it will unclog pores and refine the skin over time. Finally, the Mattifying Moisturizing Skin Care is a delicate gel-cream that keep skin looking matte and perfected the whole day long. Use all these three in tandem and you'll be more fresh daisy and less wilted flower.
