Busting Some Common Myths About Oily Skin | Skincare Meets Makeup
Oily skin type is very common and perhaps very confusing when it comes to deciding what you should do with it. This video is going to answer all your questions about oily skin and what measures you need to take when it comes to skincare and makeup.
Myth - stop thinking that oily skin doesn't need hydration. Your skin becomes very oily because of the secretion of excess oil or sebum. Keeping yourself well hydrated acts as a major contributor towards keeping skin oil free.
Besides this, you need to always keep an eye out for water based products or products that say "oil control" "oil free" etc. Oil free products that offer oil BALANCE rather than a dried out effect. My favourite cream for oily skin is the seaweed cream from The body shop which works brilliantly on oily skin.
Primers won't offer you permanent solutions against oily skin however will act as an ideal balancer and a layer of protection between your skin that's secreting oil and the makeup you're going to put. So it's good to invest in a good, oil controlling primer that will have your makeup stay in one place all day long without making your skin too shiny.
Acne, pimples and pores are extravagant and clearly seen in oily skin and oil free products help reduce them.
Powders are great too, as they have high absorbent qualities which will soak up the oil giving you a complete matte finish. When it comes to oily skin, it's important to use foundations, primers, and almost every other product that's exclusively made for oily skin, so be it skin care or makeup, being AWARE is what will give you flawless skin regardless of your skin type! :)
