Do you still believe that foundation clogs your pores? Then we go to you. We will debunk five myths together with a dermatologist and cosmetologist Viktoriy Britko.
- There are many myths and legends about foundation creams. And indeed, if the product is of poor quality, rashes may appear from it. You don't need to save on tinting creams! I'll tell you about the most common myths.
Myth # 1: pigment clogs pores
Pigment molecules can only penetrate into the upper layers of the skin and cannot clog the pores. But if the cream contains low-quality silicone, which prevents the flow of air, it will create a film on the skin, under which it is an ideal environment for the reproduction of pathogens. It is because of this that rashes can occur.
Myth number 2: foundation provokes early skin aging
No! On the other hand, many foundations containing an SPF filter protect the skin from photoaging. In addition, certain components in the composition protect against adverse environmental factors and prevent the formation of free radicals.
Myth # 3: foundation causes allergies
Almost every person has an individual intolerance to certain components. And the remedy that did not suit one will behave perfectly on the skin of another. If you are allergic, read the ingredients carefully. Especially those funds that position themselves as therapeutic. And one more tip: never wear a new product before an important event. No one can predict how the skin will react to it.
Myth # 4: one foundation works for all skin types
Just like the care product, the foundation must be selected according to the type of skin. And also - depending on the season. If you have a fatty type, give preference to products with antimicrobial and antibacterial ingredients in the composition: aloe, salicylic acid, tea tree oil. The cream should also matte and not create a Gym Skin effect.
Myth # 5: Wash your foundation brush once a week
You need to treat your makeup brush after every use! Otherwise, pathogens will multiply there, provoking the appearance of inflammatory elements on the skin.
