Most women will argue that make-up is one of life’s saviours and one of mankind’s greatest inventions as applying make-up is an easy way to enhance your appearance and hide any imperfections. However, make-up isn’t all good because using the wrong type can seriously hinder your skin and actually cause more harm than it does good.
If you’re using the wrong type of make-up – just like if you’re using the wrong type of skin care – your skin will suffer and you’re likely to cause breakouts and blemishes. It doesn’t matter how thorough your skin care regime is, if you’re using the wrong make-up products your skin will still get worse rather than better.
The majority of make-up products contain ingredients that will block your pores or irritate your skin whether that’s through drawing out moisture – leaving it dry and dehydrated – or causing a build-up of oil. If you’ve been suffering with your skin despite sticking to a strict skin care regime then it might be worth taking a look at the products you’ve been using.
Rather than choosing the cheapest make-up products when you go shopping consider your skin; Dermalogica’s Cover Tint with SPF 20 come in three different shades and contain light diffusing agents which help the product match your skin tone. The SPF rating protects your skin from the damaging rays of the sun and a combination of pearl, ginseng and purslane help to firm and smooth the skin by boosting collagen production.
The Cover Tint range is a collection of foundations that suit every skin type and thanks to being formulated without any artificial fragrances or colours, it won’t block your pores or dry out your skin.
