beauty question 4
Holla ladies! Here’s another beauty question for the day. I know a lot of you can relate to this problem (I super can!). To those who are bothered with skin oiliness, this tips are for you.

  1. Primer – it’s no secret that primer keeps the makeup on your skin for a longer time. Before putting on your foundation, powder and other makeup, prime first yout T-Zone (forehead, chin and nose). Make sure you choose an oil-free, anti-shine primer.
  2. Do not Powder that much – we have heard that powder is a great rescuer to oily skin. True that! However, do not indulge on it so much as it may backfire by making your pores to push out more and more oil. To do it correctly, lightly dub powder only on areas where it is oily. Use a matte translucent powder.
  3. Blot it out – Have your blotting sheets handy because you’ll probably need it by midday. If you’re hot, sweaty and shiny, you don’t want to add powder onto oil and perspiration — you’ll get a floury, chalky mess! That’s where the blotting sheet comes to the rescue. Be careful though in applying it. Lightly press the paper to oily areas and roll it off your skin (do not rub the sheet on your skin).
  4. Go oil Free – since our skin normally produces skin, go for creams, foundation and makeup that are oil-free and noncomedogenic, because they don’t clog your skin.  Furthermore, invest on toners and cleansers with glycolic acids as it cuts down excess oil.
  5. Skin Treatment – reduce excess oil by a weekly or twice a week mask treatment. For oily skin, those made with kaolin or bentonite are highly recommended.
