The #1 secret of skincare is to use the right products for your skin type. With combination skin that can be more difficult. Choosing professional products is always an excellent step.
Oily skin can really try your patience! Make-up meltdown by lunchtime, a way too shiny look that just doesn’t look natural all day, and unpredictable breakouts, can make even the most patient woman scream!
So, how can you tame all that oil, greatly reduce breakouts and avoid excessive shine? Well, the good news is there are many ways to show your oily skin who’s boss!

I have to wash my face at least 3x a day because I am so oily. I also can't use moisturizer because it makes me break out.
