Notice that your skin feels greasy when coming in contact with dirt? Or it emits a little extra shine? Everyone has oil in their skin. It’s just that oily skin happens when the sebaceous glands in the skin produces natural oils called sebum. Sebum is the wax like oily substance that shields and hydrates the skin. It helps in keeping your skin hydrated and healthy.

If not cleaned in few hours, the sebum mixes with dead skin cells and gets stuck in your pores causing breakouts. Oily skin could be a cause of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors.

People with oily skin experience trouble finding foundations that suit their skin, as the foundation can mix with the sebum, giving it a different consistency. A wrong formula foundation could slip and slide down an oily complexion. A perfect foundation that suits oily complexions contains pigments, leaving your face looking matte by balancing oil. While you can’t get rid of oily skin, you can use these foundations that suit best for oily skins.

Foundations vary by coverage (sheer, medium or full) and formula (liquid or powder). Since oily skins are prone to acne and breakouts, always look for the foundations that says “for oily skin” or “for acne/ breakout prone skins” or matte or shine-free finish. Polish your foundation with a pressed powder to set for extra shine reduction.
