The Best Foundations For Sensitive Skin

If you have extremely sensitive or allergy prone skin, try out some of these foundations for sensitive skin

There are many foundations in the beauty section of the department store, but if you have sensitive or acne prone skin, you will want to steer clear of a majority of them. You will instead want to look for foundations for sensitive skin, which are less likely to trigger a breakout or allergic reaction. Be sure to look for the words hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic or oil-free on the label. Many times people with skin issues that do not use foundations for sensitive skin will experience redness, bumps and other problems that can be avoided by being more selective with their makeup products. Read Skin Emergencies for a guide to your most pressing skin care concerns and issues.

Many foundations for sensitive skin are also formulated with SPF for sun protection as well as aloe vera or argan oil, both of which contain various healing properties that help repair and calm skin. Some of the best brands with sensitive skin formulas include Loreal, Laura Mercier, Estee Lauder and Yves Saint Laurent. You can also opt for a mineral powder, which is lighter on the skin. Bare Escentuals produces a line of their bareMineral Foundation which provides skin with a radiant finish while at the same time offering sufficient coverage.
