So ever since my acne cleared up and I started using AHA to keep my skin free from the flakes and to clear my giant pores, I noticed that my skin, which used to be dry/combination, is now oily/combination.
Because of that, I've started using Make Up For Ever HD Finishing Powder, which is 100% silica and soaks up oil. I use it on top of my foundation, whether it's liquid (Bourjois Healthy Skin, Make Up For Ever HD) or powder (Alima Pure mineral foundation).
Despite that though, I have to powder my face every few hours because of shine, but when I remove the makeup at the end of the day, my skin looks like it got parched and dried during the day.
Do you guys have any recommendations for better makeup, or any powders that may help soak up oil and shine without overdrying?
I've heard good things about MAC Blot Powder and Tarte's Clay Finishing powder (but it's micronized, which isn't so good) .... any thoughts on these or any other powders?
