Searching for the best foundation for oily and acne prone skin can be a challenge. I have always insisted that women find products that are oil free and will not cause unwanted breakouts. Women who have oily skin find it difficult to wear makeup. By the end of the day it seems to just melt off and you skin looks shiny and greasy. Also women with oily skin are prone to pimples on the forehead, nose and chin. When looking for makeup products I always suggest to buy products that are long lasting, non-pore clogging and provide good coverage.
This may seem difficult for the women with oily skin but it can be done if you follow these tips. There are many good products out there when searching for the best foundation for oily acne prone skin. Follow these tips and you will find a great foundation.
What to Look for in Foundations
1. Search for foundations that won’t clog your pores like normal foundations. These products are specially formulated for oily skin and are usually labeled non-comedogenic which means non clogging and non-acnegenic which products that are not likely to cause acne.
2. Look for foundations that are oil-free. Make sure most of your makeup is oil free not just your foundation. You don’t want to add anymore oil to your skin.
3. Look for powder based foundations. These powder foundations can be less irritating to your acne prone skin than the liquid foundations. The powder foundations also will control the shine on your face. The powder foundations should be a matte or oil control foundation. These makeup foundations will keep the oil from breaking through. If you have frequent shines or oil-breakthroughs during the day try carrying some blotting sheets and pat your face. These will remove any excess oil from your face.
Today most cosmetic companies realize that there is a high demand for oil free, non clogging and non-acnegenic makeup products. Start trying out different foundations to find one that fits your needs. I am sure you will find one in you budget with all the great options out there right now.
