Skincare + Makeup for that Summer Oil Slick We Call a Face!
Oh summer how my skin hates thee. Every time the hot weather rolls around my face goes from a controllable adorable Welsh Corgi to a ravenous untamable BEAR. Out of nowhere, my combo skin turns into a straight up sebum celebration. Typically, only my T zone gets a little oily and the rest of my face is normal. Now however, my entire face is disgustingly slippery.
What to do? I'll tell you! I've found some great products to keep my face in check and to keep the acne at bay. I've been using a number of these products for about a week now and have already seen a huge difference in my skin. Especially the SkinFood products and Kat Von D foundation!
Also, just be wary that using every single one of these products at the same time will dry out your skin (making the oiliness worse-yes I know, this is an annoying cycle), so choose one set at a time and see what works for you.
