Finding the right foundation for Sensitive skin

Finding the right foundation for Sensitive skin

When it comes to sensitive skin that is more on the drier side, any weather changes are tricky and it's daunting to find the right products with the transitoning seasons. In the winters your skin becomes more sensitive and dry, during the summer months it's less flaky, but still gets irritated when you use the wrong products. If your skin is eczemaprone that's even a bummer and finding the right foundation brand that has your shade range is even trickier. This guide will help you find a good foundation for sensetive skin, what brands to look for, what ingredients to avoid, and everything in between.

Tips for calming sensitive skin 

Before you apply any makeup on your sensitive skin, you need to prep your skin, cleanse your face with a mid cleanser, we recommed CeraVe hydrating cleanser with hyaluronic acid, which is great for all seasons. Using a mild and hydrating cleanser in the key, so that is cleanses your face, as well as hydrates and plumps it. Once you've cleaned your face, you need to tone: tone it using any miceller water to remove debris and clean pores, and yes sensitive skin can also benefit from toners, just keep in mind the toner should be alcohol and fragance-free.
After cleansing and toning, use the right moisturizer, we personally like pure aloe Vera gel and cream E45 for dry, eczema - prone skin. Avoid moisturizers with addes fragrances, the fragrance is the key ingredient that irritates sensitive skin.

What to look for in founfation 

Find a foundation that has some sort of hydrating properties, definitely not a matte and pore less foundation, also don't fall for a water - proof foundation. Dab your foundation lightly with your finger tips or a damp beauty blender in a way that you are not tugging and pulling your skin, if you're not gentle, your skin would become more irritated and on many cases, red and itchy. If you're suffering from rosacea, you need to consuit a dermatologist and ask specific products that cater to your skin needs. Don't jump for any products that are just a good bargain, a good foundation can make or break your skin -- it's a deal breaker.

It's best if you use a water-based foundation as it's lighter and milder on the skin. If there are particular ingredients your skin is allergic to, avoid them completely.  In the daytime, it's best to go for a tinted moisturized, one of the best is Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer that has hydrating hyaloronic acid, as well as other skin benefitss, such as sunscreen. If your foundation has sunscreen that's even better, as the sensitive skin can react adversely to sun exposure. At the same time look for sunscreen ingredients, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that don't tend to irritate the skin.
Vitamin E is a great antioxidant that hydrates your skin, as well as calms it, if your foundation has it, go for it. For sensitive skin, less is better, so always apply foundation only in areas that need coverage. Physicians Formula is a brand that is designed especially for sensitive skin, if you can find your shade in it, it's a good brand to go for.
