Can your foundation makeup protect your face from the elements?

Winter is fast approaching and with it cold weather that’s set to disrupt the skin’s beauty equilibrium. Think: rapid changes in temperature, overheated surroundings and indoor and outdoor pollution, all daily issues that bother and irritate the skin.

Time to pair your protective skincare cream with a foundation makeup that also works to weatherproof the skin. But, we’re not talking any old foundation here. After all, while foundation naturally offers a physical veil of protection, it’s important to choose a formula that meets these special criteria:

1/ By offering up solid skin moisture and hydration. When it’s cold, some foundations tend to leave the skin feeling dry, tight and pulled. Instead, choose a hydrating formula that also bolsters the results of your day cream. Consider Lancôme’s Teint Miracle, which contains 37% pure water and rose essential oil extracts to sooth the skin and banish discomfort when the temperatures dip.

2/ By containing SPF sun protection. We often forget that UVA rays known to cause sun damage and premature aging that can affect the skin all year.
