How to Prevent Skin from Getting Oily?
Exfoliate Before Applying Makeup
Exfoliation is essential for combating greasy skin. To combat breakouts without leaving your skin dry, use a light exfoliant containing salicylic acid. Excess sebum results in dead skin cells on your face, which causes pimples, acne, and blackheads. Furthermore, exfoliation will remove debris and dead skin cells while also rejuvenating your skin!
Use Moisturizer Daily
Moisturizing the skin allows for a more even and natural-looking makeup application, making it appear more natural and luminous. Moisturizer is essential for controlling oil production. All skin types need daily hydration. Oilier skin types should opt for an ultra-light moisturizer that will assist balance the skin’s natural moisture content without weighing it down.
Look for a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid, which helps to balance oil and water in the skin. It will help prevent oiliness while also keeping your skin nourished!
Use a Primer
Don’t skip this step. A primer is like a base coat for your foundation, which enables makeup to be applied more smoother. If you notice that your makeup has a tendency to separate from your skin, use a primer before application to fix the problem. To prevent shine and blur blemishes, try using a face primer. To get rid of shine, dot the primer on your face and blend outward with a brush.
Use Less Makeup
Heavy foundation can aggravate oily skin. When you wear foundation in warmer weather, it can melt into your pores and clog them, causing even more oil to be produced. Wear less makeup or lighter makeup to avoid this.
Use a Makeup Setting Spray
To lock in your look, apply makeup setting spray after you’ve applied all of your products such as foundation, concealer, eyeliner, blush, eye shadow, and mascara. Most setting sprays contain water to help moisturize the skin and prevent cakey makeup. Additionally, it contains a variety of polymers to keep your makeup in place. Some setting sprays contain skincare ingredients as well, such as hyaluronic acid for dry skin or oil-free compounds for oily skin.
If you have oily skin and find your makeup fading by the end of the day, setting spray is the answer. Furthermore, setting spray is used at the end of your makeup application routine which means it never comes into contact with your skin making it an excellent choice for sensitive skin types.
