Dealing with Oily Skin!

The daily battle with oily skin can be a hard one but I have learnt over the years to embrace my naturally oily skin and roll with it!

The great thing about having oily skin is that the high amount of oils help to keep your skin looking younger longer!

But When it comes to make up it can be annoying having a glowing oil spot in the middle of your forehead so here is a couple of products I have used to keep my make up looking flawless longer!

Benefit have come out with two amazing products to help with this exact problem!

The Porefessional and The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine! 

Amazon $40.00
Amazon $36.00

These guys are a great combo to keep my make up from 1. staying oil free and 2. lasting longer!
The Porefessional is only a pore minimiser but it really helps to decrease the amount of oils being excreted from my pores and The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine stops the oils from taking hold of your make up for up to 5 hours, I just reapply it once I feel the oil coming back and voila no more shine! 

Another thing to keep in mind is just because you have oily skin doesn't mean that you don't need to use moisturiser it may mean the complete opposite!
Always keep up with a good moisturiser there are oil free versions if you feel that oil based moisturisers are making your skin just too out of control.
Check out products like Clinique's Dramatically Different or Lancome's Hydra Zen these are gel based moisturisers rather than oil based.

Amazon $32.00
Amazon $105.00

Always remember to remove all make up from your face before bedtime and always cleanse, tone and moisturise. This will help keep your pores clear and they wont be trying to push out all that build up by producing more oils.

Try to allow your skin to breathe once in a while.
Having some make up free days does wonders to your skin and it will allow your skin to hydrate itself without being suffocated by product build up.

Have a go at adapting your make up to your skin type.
Obviously us oily skin prone gals are not going to be able to achieve a complete matte complexion all day long why not try a more dewy natural looking foundation and embrace the natural oil!

Love the skin you're in and have fun with it!
