  1. If you have oily skin, you know how hard it is to hide your greasy looking skin and keep acne from manifesting all over your cheeks. Dry face cleansers don’t always work because they take away the good oils – called sebum – that your skin needs for nourishment. Aside from the oil constantly clogging your pores, you may think most foundation make-up only adds to the problem. However, there are foundations that can help keep your face healthy, while doing their job to cover up marks and blemishes.

    Liquid Foundations

    Most liquid foundations are heavy and seem cover your face and hide your oily skin well. However, liquid foundations don’t allow your pores to breathe and Acne thrives on this kind of environment. If you are using liquid foundation and find clogged pores to be a problem, switch to a lighter weight foundation, such as a powder foundation.

    Powder Foundations

    Powder foundations are light weight, and unlike liquid foundations, allow pores to breathe, thus keeping them from becoming clogged. This is a perfect type of foundation for oily skin because the powder is dry, and won’t stick to and cover your face, rather cling and blend.
