So important is a cream as a foundation for makeup

What is a moisturizer as the basis for makeup?

Moisturizers help your body to hold water inside your skin and not let it dry out. A moisturizer suitable for your skin type will help your facial skin to strengthen its natural moisturizing substances. No matter what skin type your facial skin belongs to, the right moisturizer will help her to be perfectly prepared for makeup. Depending on the type of skin your skin corresponds to, you will find different ingredients and compositions in moisturizing creams.

Should I include moisturizer in my daily makeup routine?

Make-up can have a significant impact on the health of your skin. Many conventional foundations contain ingredients that can dry out your skin or trigger allergic reactions. For example, they contain perfumes and silicones.

Can I use a cream to protect the skin from the makeup?

A very often used, artificial fragrance is the so-called polycyclic musk compounds. This is deposited in your fatty tissue. If you are a susceptible person, this fragrance can cause changes in your hormones in the long run. 

Silicones, on the other hand, are mixed in many foundations to make them spreadable and to give you a pleasant feeling on the skin for a short time. Your facial skin, on the other hand, will not thank you for silicones in your make-up, because it does not draw anything from this ingredient. In some cases, the complexion of the skin is even worsened by silicones. Apart from the fact that this substance is bad for your skin, it also damages the environment.

A face cream suitable for your skin type helps your skin absorb all the necessary nutrients, retain moisture and perfectly prepare your complexion for the further steps of your make-up routine.
