Oily skin can be such a pain when trying to find the right makeup products. Oily skin is more prone to breakouts, so it’s important to look for key ingredients that help reduce oil.
Niacinamide is a key ingredient when it comes to reducing oil. Niacinamide helps regulate oil throughout the day so you don’t end up looking like a greasy French fry by 5PM. It also helps your lock in moisture which is key for us oily skin peeps! Another huge benefit is that it minimizes redness and shrinks pores. I don’t know about you, but I have to ice roll my face daily due to how red and puffy it is when I wake up. We love a good ice roller. In my opinion the NUMBER ONE BENEFIT is that is HELPS FIGHT AGAISNT SUN DAMAGE!!! Wear your SPF!!!
Mattifying products work best with oily skin. They are light weight, so you don’t break out as easily. I like to cake my face with makeup, so I definitely use all mattifying products. They suck up the excess oil throughout the day while hydrating your skin at the same time.
