Foundation is generally classed as make-up, not skincare, however you apply and blend it into your skin almost like you would a moisturiser, so why don't we put as much focus onto the skincare qualities of our foundation as we do with other skincare products?
Especially when you suffer from sensitive skin, finding sensitive makeup can be crucial. Even if you're loyal to a specialized skincare routine for sensitive skin, ny not using a suitable foundation, you can undo all the good work- potentially exacerbating the problem.
What to look for when choosing foundation
You have sensitive skin, and you're on the hunt for a foundation that will give you smooth, even coverage without causing irritation, dry skin or breakouts. The first things to look for on the packaging are "preservative-free" and "fragrance-free". These are two of the major culprits behind sensitivity flare-ups.
You should also consider opting for a foundation that boasts a creamy, moisturising texture, such as the Toleriane Teint Fluide Foundation by La Roche-Posay. It comes in six shades, and is a specifically formulated foundation for very sensitive skin.
