The good part about having oily skin: less wrinkles when we’re older (YAY!) The bad part: it’s quite unsightly. I have extremely oily skin and not until just recently I found the perfect skin care and makeup to use to help control the oil. If you are looking to control your oily skin or are just plain curious then read on!
I read somewhere that you should treat your skin care routine like a prescription from your doctor and NEVER skip it! The number one rule (for everyone) is to wash your face every morning and night. The best way to help control an oily face is to ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS moisturize after you wash your face. If your skin doesn’t get the moisture it needs, then it will produce excess oil to make up for the lack of moisture.
My secret weapon is the Josie Maran Argan Oil – yes, I am actually telling you to put oil on an oily face. Use this 1 to 2 nights a week in place of your moisturizer. (This product can also be used for cuticles, damaged hair, body moisturizer, etc.) I highly recommend this product if you have oily skin. It is a little pricy but sooo worth it!
Makeup, when you think about it, is kind of icky – it sits on top of your skin for hours on end and clogs your pores. No wonder it makes our skin extra oily! But makeup, at least for girls, is something we just have to wear everyday. I’ve tried so many different high/low end foundations, powders, concealers and I finally found the PERFECT foundation that helps you stay matte ALL DAY LONG. The perfect foundation is…. Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup!! I do end up setting it with a powder (I use Neutrogena Shine Control Powder) but this foundation looks better and better as the day goes on.
One more product that will help your makeup stay on all day (and keep it matte) is the Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finishing Spray. Just spray this on your face after you apply your makeup for a flawless and matte finish!
Leave a comment below if you have know of any other products that would help control oily skin! I’m always curious to find more! I’m going out of town today but I’ll talk to you guys in a few days :)
