No, I didn't take this picture. I was just going through some pictures when I saw this one of my husband when he was little. This was one of my first digital editing attempts. The selection tools I was using were pretty crude compared to what I can do now. Of Course, this was several years ago--before I knew that there was better stuff out there. Originally he (young hubby) was holding a football. The photographer must have thought a football would go great with the little bow tie, vest and slacks.

RYC: I've had to battle problems with shine even though my skin's also more dry than oily (seems highly unfair to me!). A good powder seems to be the best defence against shine. I like Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Blends Oil Control Powder (http://neutrogena.com/CosmeticsDetails_291.asp?lProductLineID=4). It's relativedly inexpensive and cuts down on shine quite well.

There's also now many different brands that make oil-blotting sheets to use throughout the day. I believe Clean & Clear have their own that can be found at drugstores for about $5 or $6. I keep a packet of these in my purse for when my face starts feeling greasy.

As a last resort, there's knowing that "glowing" skin seems to still be in, so perhaps a bit of shine isn't always a bad thing. ; ) Hope this helps.
