I have pretty much hit the trifecta when it comes to sensitive, oily and acne prone skin.

Top 5 Best Foundations for Oily, Sensitive & Acne Prone Skin

Having struggled with acne most of my teenage and adult life, my acne has always been my biggest insecurity. When I started my research on skin care, I didn’t realize how horrible I’ve been treating my skin – it’s no wonder it was being horrible right back! Changing how I think about my skin and the way I approach it has taught me that your skin isn’t something you “deal with”, it’s a lifelong process of taking care of and nurturing it. I’ve also learned what you put on your skin is just as important as what goes into your body.

I’ve listed my top 5 favorite foundations that do not irritate, accentuate or cause any kind of stress on my skin and is great for any of the 3 main types of skin I’ve mentioned.

Let me know if there’s anything you want to know about, I’m going to go in-depth with my skin care routine – I’m talking how I triple cleanse, the importance of toners, serums, sheet masks, facials, you name it, I’ll vlog about it. I cannot stress enough how much my skin has caused me so much stress and anxiety, I have cried for years over my acne. I still have a long way to go, but I’m so proud of my progress and you should be, too.

Our skin is the biggest organ in our body, we need to start changing the way we think about it if we ever want to have beautiful, healthy skin. Some people are born with it, some have to work for it, but we got this!
