On the nose is winter. And I seriously approached the problem of choosing the foundation for this time of year.
Previously, I naively believed that the only difference in the choice of tonal means for winter was the use of a slightly lighter shade, because the summer tan gradually disappears. But I soon realized that everything is not so simple.
Today I want to share with readers Alimero features that are worth paying attention to when buying a foundation before the onset of cold weather.
The first thing you should not forget – this is protection from UV rays. Although the autumn has passed and the sun has become significantly colder, the sun is still active, so the foundation still has to contain SPF (minimum SPF 15).
Replacing the foundation powder in the winter is not worth it, especially to use it as an independent means, it dries the skin, which can lead to peeling.
Since the skin from the cold especially quickly dries and dehydrates, the consistency of the foundation must be thick, more dense and oily, desirable on a silicone or oily base.
But from the matting creams better to give up. They dry out the skin, make the sebaceous glands work weaker.
When choosing a foundation pay attention to the composition. It should include moisturizing ingredients such as lecithin, marine collagen or hyaluronic acid.
I personally was afraid to buy moisturizers, as my skin is oily, but the store consultant advised me to choose creams with sesame oil, olives or grape seeds for this type of skin: they do not clog pores and do not contribute to acne. For dry skin is a cream with vegetable waxes.
The advantage is to give creams, which include vitamins of group B, fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E, K), amino acids and fatty acids.
If the make-up is in a natural, natural style, then the classical principle is taken into account: the shade should be at least one tone lighter than in summer. It is also important to remember that we spend most of the time in winter with artificial light, so it is better to purchase a product with reflective particles that will give the skin a radiant look.
It is best to apply foundation to the skin with circular light movements of the fingers 20-30 minutes before the cold.
In the winter season, to give up the foundation is strongly not recommended. It protects the skin from wind, frost, UV radiation, street dust and dirt, does not allow the cells to dry out and prevents peeling.
Almost all the time I used the Maybelline Affinitone foundation, a hint of vanilla-pink, but now I’m looking for a new suitable tool, because it will soon become quite cold, it’s recognized that the choice to make one of them is very hard – tempting offers on the cosmetic market.
Dear readers, who already have experience in choosing such cosmetics, advise your proven options.
I would be grateful)
