Recommended Makeup Products For Sensitive Skin

Let’s begin with foundations…

Many of us can be put off wearing foundation if we have sensitive skin that reacts badly every time we use it. The most important thing to remember especially for skin types that are oily, especially dry and/or sensitive is to choose a foundation that will allow the skin to breath and also hydrate the skin. This will help to prevent the pores clogging up that will often cause unwanted spots and flaky skin. If the problem is oily skin, in addition to allowing the skin and hydrate, the main objective here is to prevent shine.
