I'm melting!!!

This summer heat = SWEAT!! I know there's a saying that 'ladies don't sweat', but's hot out there!

Lucky for me, when I was teaching in Japan, a Japanese girl friend of mine recommended 'blotting papers'. They're really thin, transparent sheets of rice paper. Some have a powdery surface on one side, but I prefer the ones that don't have that powdery substance on them. You just whip out a sheet, dab or blot the oily, greasy parts of your face (my problem area is my T-zone...esp. nose and forehead) and voila! No more shine!

Several cosmetics companies now carry these blotting papers. I used 'Shisheido' in Japan and have tried The Body Shop's version a few years ago. I don't know if they still carry them though. I imagine they would.

They're great to carry with you in your purse or pocket.
