Just the idea of adding more layers to your skin care routine can make anyone who is blessed with oily skin cringe. Don't dismiss primers, though, as they can keep your makeup from slipping and smudging through the day—you just have to find the right one. Focus on finding oil-free primers (duh, right?) that tackle shine, and apply before foundation all over your face or just to the trouble areas like your T-zone. And there's a primer perfect for you, no matter your budget.
We've created a list to find the best primer for oily skin across four budget categories: the Splurge-Worthy, that centers on luxury brands $45+; the Treat Yourself zone that hovers around $30; Wallet-Friendly for around $20, and the Super Steals you can snag for less than $10. Now you can look fresh-faced even when the temperatures start scorching in the summer.
Finding a one-piece swimsuit for your body type can already be difficult, but when your bust size is DD and larger, it can seem an insurmountable feat.

Many bra and swim retailers are realizing that underwire one-piece swimsuits and other styles for bigger boobs are necessary, so we're getting super cute and hot options that actually fit. Try one of these, and feel secure in your next pool volleyball match.

However, there are some people whose acne may have left their face only to migrate to other parts of their anatomy. Body acne is just as difficult to deal with as facial acne, perhaps more so in some ways. And being that it's often genetic, it can prove inescapable.
