Oily Skin Needs Hydration Too!

As a professional makeup artist, I would recommend that women with oily skin moisturize daily, just like women with normal or dry skin. Even though the skin may seem to be over-hydrated due to the excess amount of oil, it is not. There are certain nutrients that women need to have in their skin to help with firmness, lines and wrinkles, and other aging issues. The product you use will determine the outcome of your skin.

There are many oil-free, oil-control moisturizers, that when used correctly, actually help the excess oil “problem”. Products that are created for women with oily skin actually may decrease the amount of oil that comes through the pores while also help with anti-aging.

A Good Moisturizer Works Miracles on Oily Skin!

As a lifetime “oiler”, who suffered with horrible breakouts, caring for my skin has included finding the combination of products and processes that work ~ I now have an absolutely flawless complextion. And that’s a miracle!

As the birthdays keep coming, I find that my skin is becoming a little less oily.  However, I’m still an avid moisturizer-er. Sufficient hydration is critical to proper skin care.  I drink lots of water and regularly moisturize. To manage my facial oil, I exfoliate 1-2 times weekly and use a non-oil based moisturizer to help replenish the suppleness of my skin. A good moisturizer also helps me to apply my foundation smoothly. I hope these tips help you to Be-U-ti-Full…everyday!
