If you suffer from oily skin, you know that the struggle is real. Oily skin is a common affliction among both men and women, but women often exacerbate the problem by trying to overcompensate with cosmetics. If you find yourself suffering, there's a good chance you could be making a few common makeup mistakes that make skin oily. By trying to solve the problem and taking matters into your own hands, you could be making the problem worse.
Personally, I've found that the older I get, the more finicky my skin becomes. I've always been cursed with sensitive skin, but up until a few years ago, my skin was fairly average. As long as I didn't mess around with too many products, I didn't hit too many bumps in the facial road. But I, like so many other women, have hit this period of my life where my skin is starting to act up. Where I suddenly have to pay very close attention to my night time routine, or else my skin becomes an oil spill overnight. And trust me, nobody wants to wake up feeling like an oil spill occurred on their face. To prevent your skin from extra oil, watch out for these common makeup mistakes you might be making, in order to prevent yourself from making things worse.
