The One Beauty Item an Editor Always Has In Her Bag

It’s oily skin’s savior.

Noah Lehava

Either I’ve gotten to know my skin a whole lot better in the past few years, or I have only just recently acquired oily skin (is that a thing?). Either way, it’s a fact that I currently have oily, and occasionally dry, skin—otherwise known as combination skin. It can be a little hard to deal with, considering it literally changes just as much as the weather (which makes sense), and learning how to manage it has been a whole other problem. But I can happily say that within the past six months or so, I have pretty much gotten my routine down to a science, and one thing that I never—and I mean ever, ever, ever—leave the house without is a pack of blotting papers. Boscia blotting papers, to be more specific. They’re honestly a godsend: one sheet, and I go from looking excessively dewy to perfectly hydrated. Black charcoal, green bamboo, peppermint (it’s a little weird, I know)—you name it, and I’ve got at least one pack of them stashed in each and every one of my bags. If you have oily skin or tend to get a little shiny here and there, I suggest you follow suit.
