Controlling that Shine!

Huda I need your help! What do you recommend for oily skin?! Sometimes my skin is super dry then after a long day of makeup, some areas get oily. And hate breakouts! What should I use? ♥

Hey baby! Yes, breakouts are the worst! Whenever I suffer from any breakouts I always avoid using any oil-based products like foundation and some concealers.

If your skin feels dry early on, you may want to adjust your facial regiment. Drier weather can call for the use of moisturizers that are a little more intense. One that I love and it seems to work on all my clients no matter what the climate and skin type is Kiehls Ultra Moisturizer. It's formula is not too thick, yet it provides intense moisture

I would then switch to a mineral foundation, like MAC Mineralize foundation

As for controlling the oil during the day, my favorite blotting sheets, and this is totally necessary if your skin starts looking shiny during the day (like mine), are the Shiseido blotting sheets. The Rosemary extract and Zinc Oxide in these blotting sheets keep your skin from looking oily again and also prevent breakouts

I know it seems like a lot, but I use to struggle with breakouts pretty bad. Until I understood what worked best with my skin, I was pretty much spotted, which was NOT fun! But now I feel like I have control because I use the right products and it's liberating! Try this doll and let me know how this works!
