I want glowy and dewy!

7 Jun

Oh that JLO glow!  How does she always look dewy and not oily??

So many women have asked me the same question lately…how do I keep a fresh glow when the weather turns hot and humid.  I’ve found some really good products lately, but wanted to take it a step further and research what ingredients we should avoid and what we should keep using.  I found this great site that has some good recommendations.  There is hope for all of us with oily skin – even in the Summer!

Avoid

  1. Avoid products containing oil from petroleum. This includes mineral oil. Use oil-free makeup or makeup that is intended to benefit oily skin.

  2. Avoid makeup that contains alcohol. Alcohol will strip the skin of oil, which may cause the body to produce even more.

  3. Look for ingredients such as bismuth oxychloride and dimenthicone. Both can clog pores and may cause blemishes. These are commonly found in foundation or powder based products.

Beneficial

  1. Find foundations that contain titanium dioxide, a naturally occurring sun protector.

  2. Makeup for oily skin should contain serecite to reduce the appearance of pores and help absorb oil.

  3. Kaolin clay added in foundation will help oil control.

  4. Zinc oxide used in makeup will act as an anti-inflammatory.

    Hey, thanks for posting this! I’m newly back with foundation after skipping it for a year or so and the one I found matches my skin tone perfectly but looks dewy for 30 minutes and then goes OIL ALARM ^^ And I don’t even have that oily skin… So I’ll look out for your recommendations 🙂
