Makeup For Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, you need products that control shine and minimize the appearance of pores. ColoreScience makeup for oily skin provides long-lasting coverage to give you a brighter complexion.



What Skincare Ingredients Should I Avoid If I Have Oily Skin?

A healthy amount of oil keeps skin hydrated and reduces signs of aging, but too much oil can clog pores and cause acne. Some people who suffer from oily skin go to great lengths to find a cure. From dehydrating astringents to harsh exfoliates, those who have oily skin might use products that don’t work—or make their skin worse. There are hundreds of brands claiming to have organic makeup for oily skin, but not all live up to the hype. Avoid products that contain dehydrating elements like isopropyl alcohol, ethanol, sodium, or ammonium lauryl sulfate. These ingredients dry out the skin, which can stimulate your glands to produce more oil. Look for oily skin makeup, cleansers, and moisturizers that are sulfate-free to nourish your skin. Other products may have a pore-clogging effect on your skin. Mineral oil, petrolatum, isopropyl myristate, and isopropyl palmitate are the main ingredients that can clog pores and cause acne. Even natural oils like coconut and hazelnut oil should be avoided. When you shop Colorescience healthy cosmetics and makeup kits, you can feel confident that your products are made with only the best ingredients.
