Even those with combination and very oily skin can use Benefit’s combination of Pore Professional Balm, Total Moisture Facial Cream, Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation and It’s Potent! Eye Cream for bright, glowing, shine-free skin.
Begin your routine with a good moisturiser to avoid skin drying out and to retain its moisture levels. Even those with oily skin can use a lotion – just ensure it is oil-free. Benefit’s hydra-concentrated Total Moisture Facial Cream (£26.50), with mango butter and a beautiful floral fragrance is perfect in small quantities as a make-up base during the day, or as an effective night cream. It leaves skin feeling soft and smooth all day long.
Follow this by applying tinted lightweight Pore Professional PRO Balm (£23.50). Those with combination and oily skin should pay particular attention to their T-zone, applying the balm to the forehead, chin and nose before foundation or other make-up. With a subtle tint to suit every skin tone, the balm blends perfectly, removing the appearance of pores and blackheads thanks to its vitamin E complex, giving a perfect matt complexion.
Next, it’s time to apply Benefit’s new Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation (£24.50) – an oil free liquid formula with light-diffusing properties, SPF 15 and a three star PA rating, offering you the highest standard of sun protection for a foundation.
Finally, keep your eyes sparkling, bright and dark-circle free by applying It’s Potent! Eye Cream (£23.50) under your peepers at night to help combat the signs of fatigue, age and stress. With apple and other botanical extracts and a peptide complex, it’s sure to help disguise any evidence of late nights!
