For those with sensitive skins, an invitation to a wedding or a party comes along with a dilemma – apply make-up and give a green signal to skin flare-ups or avoid make-up and end up the odd one out among decked up ladies.
Well, it’s not like it is a close-ended situation. There are many products out there made especially for sensitive skins that take into account various problem areas like oiliness, acne, inflammation, and combination skins in their formula. With these products, you no longer need to be afraid of looking your best. However, it is always advised that the best time to try out products is when you do not have to actually use them so that if something happens, there is ample time to recover. Moreover, what works for one may not necessarily work for someone else.
Here’s our list of popular brands of make-up available in India that cater to sensitive skins.
Revlon: The Revlon Colorstay Foundation Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 6 and
Revlon New Complexion Foundation (DermaBreathe) are two foundations from the brand that cater specially to oily and acne-prone skin. The Touch and Glow Moisturizing Powder compact leaves a matted, even toned skin and is good for hiding spots.
Lakme: If you are struggling with hiding dark spots, the water-based, oil-free Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover SPF 25 foundation is a good option. It contains vitamin B3 which is an essential nutrient for soft, supple, and hydrated skin, is lightweight, comes with a creamy consistency, leaves semi-matte finish and blends in well. With the cover of SPF 25, this one is perfect for the summers.
Sheercover: The Sheercover Mineral make-up kit comes with brushes for a better application. It reduces the appearance of pores and is good for everyday makeup.
L’Oreal: The Bare Naturale gentle mineral blush from L’Oreal Paris gives a super smooth texture without clogging pores. The hint of shimmer makes it ideal for the day look or casual evening outings. Its compatibility with sensitive skin makes it suitable for this list. The Infallible 16 hours Concealer will work for upto 10 hours outdoors and 16 indoors. Easy on the skin, it gives a smooth finish and comes in a sleek package easy to apply.
It is generally advised that water-based products should be preferred for oily skins; however, some water-based foundations tend to be runny and are not able to give a proper coverage. To tackle that, add a face cream or moisturizer to stop the foundation from settling into pores and make them look larger. The mixture will also allow easy blending and covering up of pitted scars.
