Oily skin can be high-maintenance, necessitating a cosmetic regimen customised to its specific requirements. This includes not just selecting the products for your skincare routine for a beautiful glowing skin, but also selecting the appropriate makeup. Wearing the wrong makeup can exacerbate skin problems, hence it’s best to get the proper products that can give the illusion of a perfect complexion. So, follow this guide in favour of a clear and amazing looking skin and ditch those blotting sheets!
Pixi glow tonic
Toners have lots of benefits for your skin especially for those who have oily or acne-prone skin. With just a few droplets per day, the perfect toner may transform oily complexions from greasy to luminous. It ticks all the boxes with 5% glycolic acid for exfoliating, soothing aloe vera, and ginseng to rejuvenate your skin. While glycolic acid is typically found in strong peeling solutions, this concentration is potent enough to remove dead skin cells and reduce the skin blemishes while maintaining your skin’s moisture barrier.
Tarte Poreless Mattifying Primer
Prepare to prime up if your makeup slides around after just 10 minutes of starting your day. For those with oily skin do not fret as the appropriate primer can be a lifesaver. The Poreless Mattifying Primer from Tarte serves to conceal imperfections, pores, and uneven skin textures.
It’s a great choice for oily skin as it will give you this “shine-free, matte finish” to get that Instagram worthy makeup look.

It also contains a combination of antioxidant-rich fruit extracts that help tone the skin.
