Start with a formula that is geared to your skin type. Naturally, you’ll want one capable of doing more for your complexion just than evening out your skin tone or hiding flaws. Therefore, when shopping you may want to check those foundations for the advantages of extra skin care benefits before purchasing.
The number one thing that is essential is a foundation with SPF of at least 15, but optimally SPF 30 or higher.
Antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E and skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, algae, peptides, grapeseed and coconut oils among others can help protect against free radicals and moisturize. If your complexion tends to be oily, then an ingredient such as kaolin can better keep the shine to a minimum.
Though as wonderful as those anti-aging treatment foundations may be, there is something that you should remember. Layering your skin care products, which also might have anti-aging ingredients could backfire to irritate when those technically advanced ingredients meet on your face. For example, retinol is commonly found in such foundations, but it can cause a photosensitivity of the skin. This is why retinol in your skin care products is ideally used before you go to bed.
Furthermore, how can you expect the same extent of skin care results just from one foundation product, despite a hefty price? I’m talking about longer lasting help such as with lifting and firming of sagging or wrinkled skin once that treatment foundation comes off.
Therefore, give some thought first and read those labels carefully before trusting your complexion completely to that anti-aging treatment foundation over separate makeup and skin care products, especially if your skin is on the sensitive side.
