Blotting powder is used to control unwanted oil that can appear throughout the day. It’s different from the makeup powder you use because, rather than trying to mask imperfections or even out your skin tone, this pressed powder is designed to remove excess oils that clog your pores and lead to breakouts.
Every minute of the day and night your skin is producing oils. These act as a barrier to keep your skin protected from the elements outside, but sometimes your skin produces too much oil, which can leave your face looking shiny and your pores exposed to things like bacteria, dirt, and other pollutants. Blotting powder is undetectable as it eliminates oil and improves the appearance of your pores, leaving you with cleaner skin from the start of your beauty routine. You can use these powders to set your foundation, smooth fine lines, and maintain a beautiful matte look throughout the day.
