5 ways to prevent makeup from dissolving off oily skin

Oily skin and makeup can have a difficult relationship. While makeup looks great on oily skin right after application, it has a tendency to disappear after a short span of time. This is known as “slipping” . Of course when you apply make up you want it to stay put for as long as possible. We’re giving you five helpful tips that can make your makeup last longer and you can kiss slipping goodbye for good.

1. Cleanser

Cleansing helps remove excess oil and sebum and should be an integral part of your skin care routine if you have oily skin. Look for a cleanser that is specifically formulated for oily skin to help minimize shine and gives your skin a clean, refreshed base for you to apply makeup. Garnier SkinActive's Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel removes excess oil and mattifies the skin. The formula infused with charcoal draws out impurities like a magnet and will leave you with freshly cleansed skin, which is a perfect base for your makeup application.

2. Clay Mask

Clay masks help regulate overly oily skin. Use a clay-based mask once a week to deep clean your skin and give it a bright, clean look. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Pore-Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser and Mask has a creamy, clay-based formula and multitasks as a cleanser or a mask to purify pores.

3. Face Wipes

If you’re on the go and need to apply makeup but your skin looks oily face wipes are perfect for cleansing touchups. They can refresh your skin and remove any excess shine while you are out and about. Try Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Purifying Oil-free Cleansing Towelettes. The soft, breathable towelettes can remove pore-clogging dirt, oil and makeup. The formula contains charcoal which draws out impurities like a magnet. Use a towelette when you’re finishing your day at work and heading to Happy Hour. Cleanse any excess shine and oil off your skin, and then apply your makeup for the evening. The extra cleanse will give your make up staying power.

4. Oil-Regulating Moisturizer

Just because your skin is oily does not mean you should shy away from moisturizer. In fact moisturizer can help regulate your skin’s oil production. Look for a non-comedogenic formulated product with mattifying properties. It can serve as the perfect base for make up.

5. Mattifying BB Cream

Another great way to prime your oily skin for make up is by using an oil-regulating BB cream. Use Garnier SkinActive’s 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Oil-Free Garnier SkinActive’s 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Oil-Free to achieve a shine-free look.
