Blessed with oily skin? Well, as the colder months set in, your skin goes through a lot of changes, due to the change in climate. Your summer and monsoon makeup may not exactly suit your skin during this time of the year.
It is a lesser known fact that, but even if you have dry skin for the rest of the year, it could turn oily in the winters! Yes, you heard that right. This is because—to combat skin dryness, your skin tends to produce more sebum, making your skin feel weirdly oily. This is why we highly suggest that you use mattifying products ideal for your oily skin type, so as to protect your skin from inflammations and breakouts.

Mattifying foundations for the win
Mattifying foundations, as the name obviously suggests, help minimise shine, restrict sebum production and provide amazing coverage that lasts all day. The Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr foundation has a feather light texture and natural matte finish that keeps sebum away for 16 hours. It easily blends into your skin to give you an even toned skin.
Liquid foundations with a matte formula
Liquid foundations are a great option if you are looking for full coverage without looking cakey. But you must choose liquid foundation textures that have a mattifying formula and do not make the skin look more oily. The Lakmé 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Foundation is boasts of a mattifying formula that controls oil and gives your skin a translucent and resplendent glow. The active properties blend into the skin beautifully to give you a natural appearance without looking overly made-up!
Powder foundations for oily T zones
Powder foundations are your safest bet if you have an oily T zone. Powders have the ability to instantly absorb oil giving your complexion a flawless and airbrushed appearance, sans the cake-y, mask-like finish. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation Compact is the perfect multitasking partner. Its powder texture gives your skin a comfortable and smooth matte finish and blends effortlessly into the not-so-oily parts of your skin to conceal fine lines and blemishes.
Oil infused foundations for acne-prone skin
If you have particularly acne-prone or problem skin, you can pick foundations that are enriched with special oils to help with it. The Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45 keeps your skin from over drying and also provides enough moisture.
