How to remedy your oily appearance


Around this time of the year, my face tends to break out terribly. To conceal my acne scars and blemishes I literally smother my face with liquid foundation. To make matters worse, I work in an air-conditioned office, but my face cannot make it through half the day without looking oily. I often pat dry it with paper towels before retouching it with a loose powder, but this doesn’t seem to help. What products do you recommend to remedy my problems?{{more}}

Thanks in advance,


Hey Rhia,

The summer months come with their fair share of problems for those of us with oily skin. Firstly, I recommend drinking a lot of water to help prevent your break outs. Secondly, to remedy your oily appearance, I suggest you forget about your paper towels and loose powder method and invest in the REVLON PHOTOREADY PERFECTING PRIMER. While it may not help you fight your acne, it lessens the appearance of scars and blemishes, so there’s no need for you to smother your face in foundation. Additionally, it helps your make-up to stay on longer and keeps oil at bay for a good 6-8 hours.

I hope this helps,
