Look for a foundation that is creamy without being too oily. A mineral powder can work wonders on combined skin since it evens out the skin tone without making the skin lose any of its lustre.

Oily skin
Avoid foundations with a lot of oils in it and aim for a matte powder foundation. Another tip is to always keep blotting papers in your hand bag to absorb shine from your t-zone during the day.

Use a foundation that provides both colour and rehydration, and look for a sort with some extra shimmer or glow added to it to brighten up your skin. Choose one with a light, fluid texture that is easy to apply and doesn’t build up on any dry spots or wrinkles.

If you have sensitive skin – look for a foundation that is fragrance free and allergy tested. A mineral powder with nourishing properties can be good option, but skip the anti-ageing ingredients since they can often irritate sensitive skin.

Varför ska man använda serum?

Ja varför ska man använda serum? Ett serum är ett koncentrat och brukar innehålla mindre molekyler än en vanlig kräm. Det innebär att ett serum lättare kan tränga ner i huden och jobba med hudcellerna i det undre hudlagret dermis. Serum brukar även ha en högre koncentration av funktionella ingredienser vilken gör dem effektivare än en vanlig fuktkräm.

Välj ett serum som passar din hudtyp för att vårda på djupet, ge mer fukt eller motverka ålderstecken. Du kommer att märka skillnad både direkt och längre fram.
