Ask The Makeup Diva
Welcome to Ask The Makeup Diva™! Our resident expert, The Makeup Diva, answers makeup and skin care questions sent in by readers just like you.

Q: I have a very oily T-zone and normal/oily skin on the rest of my face. My skin is very sensitive to most makeup I've tried. I use Dove Soap 2-3 times a day, with lotion, but that is all I put on my face. I'm looking for a liquid foundation that'll absorb

A: There's a saying I picked up somewhere recently - "Why cover up what you can just get rid of?" I think in this case, your oiliness and sensitivity may be caused by what you use to cleanse your face. Dove soap can work miracles for dry facial and body skin, but it is not always the answer for an oilier complexion. Before you further aggravate your complexion by putting an inappropriate base on top of your oily, sensitive skin, try a more appropriate cleanser. It is important to find one that will clean your skin, but not make it anymore sensitive than it already is. Give Cetaphil or Serious Skin Care's Glycolic Cleanser a try and give your bare face a chance to shine through!
