Don’t you just hate it when your face takes on a shine by lunchtime? If you have active skin at any age, controlling oily patches and breakouts can be a full time job, especially when humidity hits an all time high.

In addition to using the right skin care regimen to minimize oil production, breakout-causing bacteria, and surface dirt, finding the right foundation is an absolute must.
