For a long time foundation has had a stigma attached by skincare enthusiasts for clogging pores, producing excess oil and causing acne/blemishes on the face. But over the years, formulas have become much more skin friendly. As foundation has begun to enter the skincare world, top brands have now developed formulas that actually provide benefits for the skin.
Skin care foundation products are quickly becoming a must have addition to your regime. With a variety of products containing a combination of anti-oxidants, vitamins, hydrating ingredients and even high SPF, it's no wonder as to why these products have been such a consumer favourite.
Due to the high variety, finding the best skin care foundation that fits your routine can be quite a task. We've rounded up some of our favourite skin care foundation hybrids that build skin health whilst your skin glows!
