Best Foundations for Sensitive Skin
Welcome back to your foundation manual!
We have now done an introduction to foundations as well as posts for our oily skinned brothers and sisters and those with dry skin. Let’s take some time to focus on those of us that have sensitive skin. More people have sensitive skin than one would think and, as most things, sensitivity levels vary from person to person, season to season.
Many of the cosmetics on the market contain components that irritate the skin and can cause to reactions such as break outs, drying, redness, or full blown allergy attacks. Some common perpetrators are fragrance, alcohol, parabens, and sulfates. While you can go completely “clean beauty” to avoid triggering skin irritation, you don’t necessarily have to. This is especially important since most natural brands do not have the engineering to create a fully color inclusive range yet.
In the meantime, there are some mainstream brands and products that everyone can use, especially those with sensitive skin.
Have you tried these products or would you like to have your favorite included in the list? Let us know in the comments below.
