The REAL “Foundation” of Your Makeup Routine

If you’re like most women, you’re always on the lookout for the perfect foundation, whether it’s a $3 drugstore steal or a luxurious department store foundation. Even if you’ve finally found one that matches your skin tone and provides the right amount of coverage, you’d gladly leave your current tried-and-true formula in favor of something better. After all, a good foundation is essential; it can make or break your whole look.

The Real Foundation of Your Beauty Routine

Whether you have a bargain foundation that you swear by or you splurge on a high-end foundation, if you aren’t taking proper care of your skin, you’re not going to achieve your desired results. Apply even the priciest foundation to dry, tired skin, and you’ll have a disappointingly patchy, uneven canvas for the rest of your makeup.

As Demi Moore famously said, “If you focus on good skincare, you really won’t need a lot of makeup.” The real foundation of your makeup routine is great skin, and to achieve great skin, you need a moisturizer that addresses your skin’s needs. Starting your makeup routine with a high-quality moisturizer gives you a smooth, hydrated surface onto which you can apply your foundation. When used properly, a good moisturizer allows your foundation to spread evenly, giving you consistent coverage that lasts all day.

The Most Common Skin Problems

Each season of life comes with its own skin concerns and frustrations. Our younger years may be plagued by oily skin and acne. We naively assume that as we approach our twenties, those problems will naturally resolve. For a few lucky ones, that’s exactly what happens. Many of us, however, get a rude awakening when we realize that thanks to hormones, acne may well follow us into our twenties, thirties, and even forties. Meanwhile, even in the midst of trying to keep pimples at bay, we begin dealing with the fine lines, uneven skin tone, and the loss of moisture that are the trademarks of maturing skin.

If you’re counting on foundation alone to address, or at least hide, these issues, then you won’t get the results you want, no matter how much you’re willing to spend. In fact, foundation can amplify these problems, especially if your skin is dry.

How Beauticell’s Lightweight Day Moisturizer Supports Beautiful Skin

Regardless of whether your skin tends to be oily or if you can never find a moisturizer that provides enough hydration, you don’t want skin that looks dry, dull, and leathery. Beauticell’s Lightweight Day Moisturizer gives skin a rich, luxurious feel that allows makeup to glide on easily. It’s formulated with a host of skin-loving ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Scenedesmus Rubescens Extract, and Aloe Vera, protecting skin from environmental dangers and ensuring round-the-clock hydration. This daily moisturizer from Beauticell can be used alone for supple, dewy, and youthful looking skin, or it can be worn under makeup to provide a beautiful foundation for your beauty routine.

Meet the Stars

Unlike traditional moisturizers that work by simply drawing moisture to the skin, Beauticell’s Lightweight Day Moisturizer is packed with ingredients that nourish your skin. Your skin doesn’t just feel better, it is better.

Hyaluronic Acid

The inability to preserve moisture is one of the most common characteristics of mature skin. This can result in visible loss of firmness, plumpness, and pliability. Hyaluronic acid, a vital substance that healthy skin produces naturally, has the amazing ability to attract and hold on to vast amounts of moisture. It is called a “smart nutrient,” as it is able to automatically adjust how much moisture it absorbs based on how much is needed. This miracle ingredient promotes optimal balance, ensuring that your skin is adequately hydrated without providing too much moisture. In fact, it’s so effective that some women are opting to get hyaluronic acid injections.

In addition to this, hyaluronic acid mitigates damage caused by UV rays, environmental pollutants, and harsh skincare ingredients. Unlike other nutrients like collagen, hyaluronic acid penetrates through the layers of the skin, promoting tissue repair and regeneration and boosting skin’s elasticity and level of hydration. It’s extremely gentle and because it occurs naturally in younger skin, it is suitable for all skin types.

Sun Defense DSM and Pepha-age

We’re all well-acquainted with the dangers of UV rays and the role that they play in causing premature aging. However, even if we spend most of our time indoors, our skin may be suffering from environmental factors. Scientists are beginning to research the effects that blue light, such as the light emitted by our mobile devices, computer screens, and fluorescent bulbs, has on our skin. Early research suggests that this type of light causes the release of free radicals, which may contribute to premature aging. Most SPFs do not protect against this light range, meaning that even if you dutifully apply skin protection every day, your skin may still be vulnerable.

Sun Defense DSM and Pepha-age are formulated with protective ingredients like freshwater algae Scenedesmus rubecens to stimulate the skin’s natural defense against both blue light and UV rays.

Aloe Vera

Few beauty treatments have stood the test of time, and Aloe Vera is one of them. Its medicinal uses have been recognized for thousands of years, earning it the name “plant of immortality” by the ancient Egyptians. It is suitable for all skin types and treats a full range of issues, from acne to premature aging. Aloe Vera is rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C, both of which are recognized for their age-fighting properties, and its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties lighten blemishes. It is also an effective moisturizer, providing optimal hydration without leaving behind a greasy residue.

On their own, each of these ingredients promotes healthy, radiant, youthful looking skin. Together, they are perfectly balanced to treat nearly any skin concern while providing protection against the environmental factors that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and dullness.

Before beginning your makeup regimen, give your skin a truly beautiful foundation by preparing and protecting it with Beauticell’s Lightweight Day Moisturizer.
