I'm looking for something I can put on my face that will simultaneously block oil production for as long as possible throughout the day and conceal acne-related redness.  So, basically a tinted oil control cream.  I know there's oil control makeup, but maybe there's something specifically formulated for extreme, acne-related oil.  Tinted benzoyl peroxide cream is another option, but is it the best option?

As far as blocking oil production, I think Accutane does that job but I heard it leaves skin severly dry.

 

I found that my skin is not as oily when I mix in jojoba oil with my moisturizer. Also, I do carry a lot of oil blotting sheets for my really oily days.

 

As far as concealing the redness, I use a revlon concealer that I apply to my red spots.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

Try using the green cover sticks to counteract the redness, then apply your regular concealer/foundation. Just make sure to apply the green concealer as light as possible because it might be a little harder to clean off than your regular concealer.

Also, there's a cleanser from Clean and Clear that leaves a translucent, barely noticeable powder-like substance on the skin to absorb oil throughout the day. I'm unsure of the name, but the packaging is gray and purple if that helps. Blotting papers are a great option (they have super cheap options at Target), and using a great moisturizer (perhaps for oily skin) is always a good choice. Make sure to wash your face twice a day, too! And drink lots of water!

Hope this helps!
