Skin types can vary from very dry to very oily. Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. These glands are located under the skin’s surface.
Oily skin is linked to genetics and can be difficult to prevent. Even oily skin caused by changes in hormones is difficult to control.
Below is a beauty guide for brides with oily skin.
Use An Anti-shine Primer: Always use a primer on your skin first before applying any makeup. A primer helps the makeup stay long on oily skin. Prepare your skin base with the primer and then you can go ahead and apply foundation.
Exfoliation: Exfoliating helps to keep your skin silky soft and smooth by removing away dead skin cells. You can make small, circular motions using your finger to apply a scrub or use your exfoliating tool of choice.
Always Use Oil-free Cosmetics: Never use cosmetics that have excess oil. All cosmetics contain oil, but you need to carefully look at the percentage of oil in the product before buying or using one.
Facial Mask: Regular using a face mask will allow you pores to open up and allowing the skin to soak up more of the product. Using a facial mask once a week will be beneficial. Look for a mask that’s primarily made from natural clay, or make your own mask at home.
Wash regularly: Washing regularly can reduce the amount of oil on the skin. Wash with a gentle soap and warm water. Avoid soaps with fragrances, added moisturisers, or harsh chemicals.
