dry/oily skin?

on Feb 07, 2007 @ 01:33 pm

Okay I have naturally oily skin, but I am having a problem with acne which is going away now but the bumps leave dry paches on my face that make my make up look funky not long after washing and applyin make up. Does anyone know of something I could use on my face to not make the rest of my face too oily but keep those dry spots from messing up my makeup coverage?

Welcome to my club. lol - I have a bad habit of picking things off my face, which leaves me with dry, crusty patches randomly spread over my semi-oily face. I've got a few suggestions to help solve the problem though.
1. Nip it in the bud. Aveeno daily scrub is perfect for every day or multiple-day use. It scrubs off the rough parts, and leaves my skin oil free all day.
3. You could try a primer - I don't unless its terrible just to save time, but it really will help you even out your skin.
4. the following is a self-tested method. I dab a little extra moisturizer on the dry spot, then put a little blemish concealer on top of it. I rub it in with my fingers - not the wand, or you'll end up getting spotty. I use Revlon colorstay in Fair. I don't think you can go too light in a blemish concealer. I finish my makeup, then brush on a light layer of powder on top, grab a coffee, and go.
