Can makeup be good for skin?


Many of us have a love-hate relationship with makeup. We love how we look and feel when it’s on but hate how our skin looks when it’s off.

This might be because the products we’re using aren’t nourishing our skin. Let’s look at what it takes for makeup to benefit the skin underneath.

Ingredients matter

Many cosmetics, with any combination of natural or artificial ingredients, can dry out skin and accentuate fine lines and wrinkles. Look for cosmetics that include a moisturizing ingredient to help benefit skin’s appearance when wearing makeup, and, more importantly, when not.

Opt for makeup that includes vitamins and antioxidants to help nourish skin and benefit its overall health. Alpha and beta hydroxy acids are highly sought-after ingredients because these “miracle workers” gently exfoliate skin’s outermost layer to reveal a more youthful-looking appearance.


A holistic approach

Some cosmetics lines are developed with a multifaceted approach to emphasize natural beauty. Companies like Jeunesse are leading the cosmetics industry by redefining makeup as an extension of any skin care routine.

Two of the most important things for healthy skin are hydration and nutrition. Jeunesse offers a line of exclusive skin care products and supplements that help deliver moisture and nourishment to the skin.

It’s no surprise that the award-winning NV collection of Aerobrush foundations from Jeunesse Global is balanced for skin health, while offering “Beauty with Benefits.” The oil-free formula includes Jeunesse exclusive APT-200 and is free from phthalates, parabens, sulfates and talc. Plus, it’s hydrating and designed for all skin types and tones.

Regardless of brand, it’s important to look for these kinds of characteristics in all makeup.
The final touch

So, can makeup actually be good for your skin? Yes!

Just remember to pay close attention to what goes into the products you consider. Look for makeup that hydrates, is free of harmful ingredients and has a skin-nourishing formula.
