My skin is oily. no matter what i do the oil comes through my makeup. i have tried expensive primers, scrubs, matteifiers, proactiv and nothing is working...i need help!!
I skip lotion before makeup & only apply it at night. I use a mattifying primer & foundation, blot with tissue then powder. Finish with Urban Decay De-Slick & only have to use blotting papers once daily now. I also use Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner which sops up a lot of oil.. Another cure, Milk of Magnesia :)
You can't make your oil go away no matter what products you use, you were born with this skin type. You can minimize the oil by using "oil free" products: oil free facial cleaners, oil free moisturizers, oil free foundation, etc. Use blotting sheets to wipe away oil when needed, use mattifying powders if needed. I have oily skin myself, so this is what i do. My Dermatologist also told me that oily skin is considered healthy & to be glad I don't have dry skin :-)
I have seriously oily skin. This routine has worked AMAZINGLY well to where I don't have to touch up AT ALL!

Niki C. Great routine!!! I'm oily too and I'm gonna try the Milk of Magnesia. I'm 38 yrs old and have battled with oily skin but my skin still looks amazing because it's NEVER dry! All we can do is maintain the oil using blotting papers and touch ups with a light dusting of blot powders MAC or translucent powders.
Try using milk of magnesia the original version.
Sonya I'm 30 and just got the nerve to try it and it saved me!!
Honesty I have compo skin and doing a face mask every week is the key to controlling my skin c
