Smile foundation

Hello guys

I just need some advice or a little quick tip. My skin is average, i have black heads, get the odd pimple, blemish. It's not perfect, but not totally awful. I like to think I have combination skin for it could be overly dry or totally oily.

I use tersaseptic soap mixed with baking soda twice a day. It makes my skin feel tight & clean, then i apply tea tree cream afterwards to keep it smooth & give it some moisture. Tea tree is also good for acne.

I usually don't wear foundation, but there are times when I wanna dress up & look flawless. My problem is my face gets soo shiny. I would apply barely any foundation on, & a few hours later, my skin is oily & shiny. Even without it on my face gets shiny. How do I rid of this?

Re: foundation

First you need to make sure you are wearing a foundation that is suited for your skin type. You should be wearing a foundation for oily skin and that should help. Also, some people have really oily skin and also will put a mattifier on their skin before foundation and that helps also. There are lots of foundations made specifically for oily skin, not sure if you are looking for drugstore or dept store kinds.

Re: foundation

A good primer is smashbox photo finish light. Also you can get a mattifying powder to put on throughout the day and oil blotter sheets to use during the day as well. You might want to try a different face wash since it seems like that one is too harsh for you. Your face shouldn't feel tight after you get done washing it. Clinique has a gel moisturizer that is pretty good and is for combination oily skin. Hope this helps!
