5 Simple Steps to Manage Oily Skin At Home!
Words cannot describe how incredibly frustrating it is to have oily skin. You leave the house with a fresh face of makeup and you already know it’s not going to last! So how can you get rid of oily skin on your face?
While dealing with an oily complexion is certainly no fun, there’s good news. Compared to all the other skin types, oily skin tends to age better. So you don’t have to worry about any fine lines creeping up on you anytime soon.
Here are 5 effective ways to manage oily skin to help you keep the shine to a minimum!
1. Keep your skin hydrated
The first step is to moisturize. In the evening and in the morning.
I know what you’re thinking. When you’re dealing with an oily complexion, the very last thing you want to do is to add any more moisture to your face. But trust me, stepping up your skincare regimen will make a huge difference.
The best time to moisturize your face in the morning is right before you apply face primer. Before priming, don’t forget to wait a couple minutes for your moisturizer to fully set!
2. Store makeup wipes close to your bedside!
Never ever go to sleep with makeup on! Insert the eye-roll here. You’ve probably already heard this way too many times to count.
Sleeping with makeup on can clog your pores and irritate your skin and! But it happens. Sometimes you just doze off… and it’s hard to find the willpower to cleanse your face when you’re half asleep.
Make things easier for yourself by storing makeup wipes by your bedside!
3. Make sure you’re getting plenty of water
Fact: Drinking more water is good for you.
Bring a water bottle with you everywhere you go, to make it easier for yourself to drink more water throughout the day! Getting an adequate supply of water will keep your skin hydrated by improving the condition of your skin and helping to regulate oil production.
4. Set your makeup with a loose setting powder
Always apply a layer of loose setting powder to set your makeup after you’ve applied foundation and concealer. Make sure you let the powder set for a couple minutes before blending it into the rest of your face.
Setting your makeup with a loose setting powder will make it last A LOT longer!
5. Add a layer of pressed powder for extra staying power
After setting your makeup with a loose setting powder, use a powder brush to buff in a layer of pressed powder to keep the shine away!
An added bonus: Adding this step to your makeup routine will ensure your setting powder doesn’t leave a white cast!
