Which Makeup is Best For Aging Skin?

Finding the perfect foundation for aging skin is often a challenge.

Aging skin has  a number of issues, from fine lines and wrinkles to discoloration and dryness. Choosing the appropriate makeup to blend, camouflage, and hydrate can seem almost impossible.

Choosing a foundation that adds moisture will help plump up the skin, creating a softer, smoother, more youthful finish. Cream or liquid foundations seem to work better than powder, as powder can dull and dry the look of skin.

My Recommendations:

Dermalogica Sheer Tint Moisture SPF 15 (Medium)For minimal coverage, I choose Dermalogica's Sheer Tint plus Moisture with an SPF of 15.  This product offers protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays while providing a sheer wash of color naturally from Iron Oxides. Great for those with more even skin tone, as it offers very sheer coverage. Available in Light, Medium, and Dark shades.


For more coverage, I love dermalogica's Treatment Foundation. Available in shades numbered 1, 1G, 2, 2G, 3, 3G, 4, and 5, there is a color for everyone. The G stands for gold. ( I am fairly light,with pink undertones in my skin, so I use #1) The product is lightweight and blends completely. The oil-free moisture leaves skin feeling clean. This product contains no extra sunblock, so I recommend applying the Solar Defense Booster SPF 30 underneath for added protection. Helpful tip: for lighter coverage, use an applicator sponge to apply. For more coverage, use fingertips to apply. Dab, don't rub.


I really love Dermalogica's choices for foundation, as they are non-comedogenic, meaning they will not cause breakouts. They are free of artificial colors and fragrances, which can cause irritation. Best of all, adding a Dermalogica foundation is treating yourself to the ultimate in skin care.
