To keep skin oil-free and shine-free all day:
STEP 1 Cleanse your face every morning and evening. When cleansing at night, use a makeup remover before cleansing.
STEP 2 Cover your blemishes with concealer. You might need two different colors of concealer: one for the hairline and one for the cheeks. One shade should match your skin tone exactly; the other should be slightly darker for covering redness and blemishes (to make the covered blemishes appear more natural and blend better with your skin tone).
STEP 3 Set your face with colorless, oil-free powder.
Tip: If you experience consistent acne problems, see a dermatologist. Fortunately, acne is considered a medical, not a cosmetic, condition, and many acne prescriptions are covered by health insurance.
