Mineral Make-up and oily skin

United States

I just started using some mineral makeup. My skin seems to be more oily since I have started using it. The makeup is really good and covers well, just causes oilyness! What should I do?? I use semi-matte foundation, should I go to Matte?? Help!

Switching to matte would be a good idea. Also opt for a cleanser and moisturizer specifically formulated for oily skin to keep your skin from getting greasy under your make up. I find that using blotting tissues (all they are is tissue paper so making your own is an inexpensive and easy option) throughout the day is also a good way to curb oiliness. They soak up the oil without disturbing your makeup. Sometimes a midday blot and reapplication of matte powder is also a good idea. Another suggestion is to pick products without any sheen or sparkle to them - they really seem to highlight shiny skin.

My face seems to become oily these days. It maybe due to environment changes and of the moods. I just shift from a brand of facial cream to ponds oily skin cream. It works for me. Plus I use to scrub a lemon peel in my face. I do it at least twice in every week.
