The Best Way to Apply Make Up to Oily Prone Skin

Aug 16, 2008
If you are applying make up when you are suffering from oily skin then there are some things that you need to do. One simple task is to make sure first of all that the makeup that you do use is oil free, and if your skin does feel oily during the day, then you should wipe your skin with a clean tissue and then reapply your makeup.

This is a bit messy as you may be applying your make up only once, but the best thing that you really should do is not to apply any make up at all. This will help the skin to breathe more easily and there will be less chance of the skin becoming clogged. If you however you just cannot live without makeup, and you notice that you are getting spots on the skin then you should try another range of make up products.

If you are out during the day, then your makeup needs to be removed as soon as possible preferably when you return home, and not when you are about to sleep. Removing make up at the earliest chance is essential in order to allow the skin to be exposed to the air and to also prevent any further irritation that your skin might be experiencing.

There are only theories as to why oily skin takes place, and based upon these theories, various skin products have been developed. However oily skin does generally appear more in men and happens during periods of hormonal change, such as puberty, pregnancy but oily skin does decrease as the skin gets older. This is why when people get older, more wrinkles on the skin do appear, as the skin is just not able to lubricate itself as well when the oil glands were secreting oils at a normal or even increased rate than before.

There are some very simple and practical tips that you an follow in order to help control the level of oils on the surface of the skin. One is to mix tumeric powder with milk and then apply it to the skin. Leave it for no more than thirty minutes and then rinse with cold water.

Another useful product that is beneficial to the skin is to use neem. If you take a spoon of neem powder, and mix this with yogurt and then apply to the face and neck, you can often see a difference in the skin as soon as you rinsed the mixture away. Neem like tumeric is a natural antiseptic and has the ability to heal and restore the skin to its natural state.

You can also try washing your skin with mint juice and rose water, and then again rinse away after ten minutes or so. If you feel that you have enlarged pores you might want to be washing your skin with cold water. But to help reduce your pores even further you may want to take an ice cube that has been dipped in rose water and rub this over the face.
