Beauty Tips From Bobbi Brown
All of a sudden, my skin's oily. What's going on?
Samer Dilbeck, Marietta, Ga.
Bobbi: The usual culprits: You've switched to a product that's too heavy for your skin, or your hormones are acting up (common for women over 40). If you're using a cream moisturizer, try a lotion or serum labeled "oil-free." Since creamy washes can leave a film, pick a gel-based one. For extra grease control, try an oil-free foundation topped with a dusting of powder. My last resort is carrying around mattifying papers.
