The Best Foundation For Sensitive Skin

Got sensitive skin? Try one of these special foundations that will give you flawless skin without the irritating side effects

If you find that your skin reacts negatively to a majority of the products, including cosmetics that you put on it, chances you are you may need to look into finding a foundation for sensitive skin. Doing so will help prevent future outbreaks and allergic reactions that you may have experience in the past due to certain chemicals and ingredients found in many products. Many women have sensitive skin, and often experience dryness and redness due to the fact that their skin is thinner and more delicate than those with regular skin. In order to keep your skin smooth and clear, you will want to use products that have few fragrances, chemicals and preservatives in them. Be sure to make sure that the label says that the product is hypoallergenic and non comedogenic. Read Makeup Test: 12 Best Foundations for product recommendations.

When selecting a foundation for sensitive skin, try to find one that has an SPF between 15 to 30 for added skin protection. Silicone based foundations tend to have lower rates of skin irritation and when applying to your face, avoid rubbing in too deeply. Another good foundation for sensitive skin is a powder formula, due to the fact that it has a lighter, more delicate consistency and they help protect your skin from the sun and pollutants without clogging your pores.
