Sensitive skin heroes – the powder chronicles
When bh member swoopingbuzzards started a forum thread claiming she was having difficulty finding a powder foundation for her sensitive skin, we ‘swooped’ in to help.
What we want to stress to all of the sensitive-skin senoritas out there is that there are many brands that can cater for your skin concerns, and deliver totally flawless, irritation-free results. If your delicate skin is prone to allergies and redness, you could try products that don’t include parabens and sulfates, as these ingredients can irritate some people. Instead, look for products that contain ingredients with soothing properties, like green tea and aloe vera.
(Keep in mind there are differest degrees of sensitivity, so it's best to do a patch test first if you're not sure.)
We took the liberty of grabbing a few of our favourite powder foundations that cater to those with sensitive skin – and there’s definitely a powder to suit every budget – so everybody wins!
