Healthy foundations for oily skin

My skin is eating my makeup!

Some people are troubled by it, you put on your makeup and  before the day has even reached lunch, it’s gone. Where did it go? It looks like your skin has eaten it. Could it be sucked into your skin flowing through your vessels??  of course not, but it is an annoying problem which is caused by the following,

Oily skin

Oily skin is the main cause for makeup disappearing from your face, the applied products simply slide off due to an excessive oil production. there are several things you can do though. Depending on the oiliness of your skin you can use an appropriate foundation specifically designed for oily skin. Or, If your skin is really oily and your makeup almost instantly comes off after you just applied it you can use a primer, which is designed to keep the oil from breaking through.

Some people have a combination/oily  complexion and can use a selection of spots where they apply a primer AND foundation vs the other spots where a foundation alone is sufficient

What you shouldn’t do!

People with oily skin often have the tendency to cleanse the skin too often or too vigorously,. don’t rub too hard or use chemical products that will strip all oil from your skin completely, this will only lead to a higher oil secretion as the glands underneath your skin will start to work harder to keep the skin balanced. It’s a vicous circle that needs to be broken, wash your skin 2 times a day to get rid of about 80% of the oil and dirt, but not for a full 100%.
