The Quick Skin Fix Celebs Swear By (It's Not Botox)

By Baze Mpinja, Glamour magazine

There's an under-the-radar product stars use to keep their faces shine-free on the red carpet. I tried it. It works.

The little oil zapper is called OC Eight Professional Mattifying Gel and you can get it here. It's actually been around for years, but Dr. Jessica Wu, an L.A. dermatologist who treats a bunch of famous Hollywood peeps, just put me onto it. Dr. Wu told me that she recommends it to her celebrity clients all the time because it's better for the skin than piling on layers of powder (imagine how gross and cakey that would get under hot lights).

Obviously, I don't have to worry about flashing cameras, but my oily skin usually starts looking too shiny by noon. So annoying. OC Eight took care of all that--I put on a little bit over my moisturizer and did not see even the teensiest bit of shine for the rest of the day.

But enough about me. Do you have an easy trick for staying shine-free? What's YOUR favorite skin problem solver? Please, blab away!
