The rules are just too difficult and numerous, which is why we’re here to provide you some guidelines to consider when applying makeup to oily skin.

Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Primer smooths imperfections and creates an evenly toned skin helping foundation to blend, giving your skin a matte look and also protects it from damage.

Although your friend might try to entice you to buy a sparkling foundation that provides you with the look of a goddess forever however, you should know that it’s not the right option that your complexion needs. If you have oily skin, go for products that offer matte finishes such as Lakme 9to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation paired with Lakme 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact to give your skin a matte appearance clean and flawless all through the day!

No matter how long an entire day, it is important to remove your makeup before you go to bed. Applying an easy makeup remover such as the Simple Gentle To Face Micellar Cleaning water helps get rid of all impurities from the skin, making the skin soft and helping to reduce acne, while also maintaining good skin health.

One thing to remember is to make sure your makeup brushes are free of dirt and avoid sharing your brushes with others. The unwashed sponges and brushes are breeding areas for bacteria that could cause harm for your skin, leading to the possibility of rashes and irritation. So, sponges and brushes must be cleaned thoroughly after use and taken good care of so that you don’t share them with other people.

Although it may be challenging to be makeup-free when suffering from acne, going some time off from putting makeup on your face can help your pores heal faster. If applying makeup is inevitable you must wash your skin well at night by washing it with Lakme 9-to-5 Matte Moist Clay Face Wash. This cleanses your skin and improves its mattification, while ensuring to not strip the skin’s essential oils.
