How to take care of oily skin?
Your skin needs its natural oils to keep it healthy and hydrated, but of course, there can always be too much of a good thing. Oily skin is often characterised by a shiny look, large pores, pimples, and an overall rough appearance. It can be caused by stress, changes in hormone levels, or simply due to genetics.
Now, having said all of that, here are some things you can do to take care of oily skin:
- Wash your face in the morning and again in the evening using warm water and a gentle soap with no or little fragrance
- Apply a toner after washing and then gently dry your face with a soft towel
- Don't use rough mechanical exfoliators or cloths, as they can cause more oil production
- Avoid chemical-based makeup and other skincare products
- Use mineral oil-free makeup and skincare products designed especially for oily skin.
How to apply face powder on oily skin?
After cleaning your skin, apply a toner and mattifying primer - if a moisturiser is part of your daily skincare regime, apply it now. At this point, we need to look at applying a mineral face powder for oily skin. The best practice process is detailed below.
- If necessary, apply a small amount of liquid concealer to any danger zones. This will cover blemishes and help prevent breakouts
- Choose the right product. Our best-selling setting powder for oily skin is the Natural Finish Pressed Powder Foundation
- Use a large brush to apply a thin layer of the product in circular motions
- Don't forget the area around your eyes.
- If necessary, you can add another layer of powder, this time using a damp sponge instead of a brush
- Finally, you can also apply matte finishing powder and / or blush for another layer of protection against excess oil
