Oily, Acne-Prone Skin Fixes

You really outsmart pimple breakouts and makeup meltdowns. Just don’t wait till your oily skin goes out of hand. Keep it in check from morning to night with these grease-defying skin and makeup strategies.

Squeaky clean skin is the goal of every oily skinned woman. Achieve it by sticking to gentle cleansers like Skinceuticals LHA Cleansing Gel.

Different zones on your face have different moisture needs. On hot spots, such as your forehead and nose, apply an oil-control lotion like Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Matufying Fluid. On the rest of your face, use a heftier moisturizer like Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream.

Never forget to prime. Once you put this buffer in place, your make up will stay put even if your skin starts to get a bit oil. For up to 8 hours shine control, try Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer.

Conceal smartly. Its a bit hard to get a concealer to stay where there has been acne bumps. Tackle such issues with waterproof Makeup Forever Full Cover Extreme Camouflage Cream. To neatly cover all sides of a blemish, use a fine tipped liquid eyeliner brush.

A treatment lotion can spell long term relief for oil skin and acne. Even if you’re not acne prone, oily skin can still lead to clogged pores and retinoids can help with that too. For a helpful night treatment, go for Philosophy Help Me Retinol Night Cream.

Whatever you choose, keep skin supple by layering an oil free moisturizer on top of it and rest easy knowing a glowy-skinned future awaits.
