4 of the best foundations for sensitive skin
Finding skin care products that are gentle enough to not irritate sensitive skin is hard enough. Add cosmetics into the mix and, well, it just seems like a lost cause.
It certainly may seem that way, but it really is possible to find a foundation that can help make your skin look its best, without making it feel its worst.You just need to know which brands to look out for. There are plenty that cater to those who have skin that would flare up in the mere presence of parabens, talc, and fragrances.
Here are four foundations that will offer you the coverage you crave (yes, that includes covering redness and rosacea) as well as being kind and gentle to your skin. They are also excellent options for use after that chemical peel or laser treatment when your skin is healing and feeling a little tender.
This water-resistant foundation was originally developed to effectively cover up skin and help heal it after procedures like fractional laser, skin needling and microdermabrasion. The technology used in the formulation ensures your skin can breathe, without compromising on the wear of it or how well it conceals any redness or blemishes. The colour-corrective foundation can be used to help heal a multitude of skin concerns, including eczema, acne, psoriasis, vitilgo and rosacea.
