Hydrating, oil-free formula

When battling with oily skin, you should enlist a foundation containing hydrating ingredients (like hyaluronic acid) to absorb moisture and also prevent shine. There’s a misconception that oily skin can’t be dehydrated, and in fact, dehydration can trigger overproduction of oil and make skin oiliness even worse. Adding an extra hydration can do more good than harm and keep oily skin at bay.

Go matte, skip shimmer

You can’t go wrong with a nice matte finish that plays well with an oily complexion. Choose an oil-free foundation with a soft matte, shine-free finish. Since your oily skin has its own natural glow. make sure you avoid anything with a radiant, luminizing or dewy finish that can make your skin look greasy and very likely will smudge off throughout the day.


Look for powder foundations
