Question: What are some tips for oily skin?
Answer: Oil may be good for the hair and body, but it’s no secret that too much oil can be a royal nightmare. If you’re an oily girl, it might feel as though you’ve put your face in a fryer halfway through the day. But, have no fear; there are simple (and cheap!) ways to combat the oil.
All oily girls should own blotting papers. These magical little sheets will save your life, and you can keep them in your purse for quick touch-ups throughout the day. They’re handy, convenient and compact—all you need to do is pull one of those bad boys out and sweep across your face.
To the stop oil in its tracks, use a high-quality cleanser. Many products are hit-or-miss, so the best way to figure out what works best for your specific skin type is to experiment. It can be expensive, but once you find the perfect cleanser for your skin, it’ll be so worth it.
After cleansing, it’s extremely important to moisturize your face. It’s a huge misconception that if you have oily skin, it means you should avoid moisturizer. Applying a great moisturizer after cleansing is an important step because if you don’t, your face will be stripped of all natural oils. Long story short? Oil combats excess oil.
So when it comes to makeup for oily skin, what’s a girl to do? Well, anything matte will be your savior. Matte products are perfect for oily skin, as the product won’t leave a shine. Stick with matte foundation.
And, of course, it’s so important to look for that “oil-free” label. Seek it out and embrace oil-free makeup.
Oily skin shouldn’t be a constant bother, and with these tips, you’ll be more ready than ever to combat oily skin.
