Foundations. As we age we can’t live without them. Or at least we shouldn’t. I don’t leave the house without SPF and foundation on my face. SPF for the obvious reasons, but foundation because I need to hide the imperfections that are starting to crop up on my face. I wish I had known (or listened) to stay out of the sun when I was in my teens and 20’s because I am paying for it now. I get laser treatments to rid myself of sun (age) spots, but those damn buggers keep coming back! So here are the best 5 anti-aging foundations I have found on the market right now.
Best 5 Anti-Aging Foundations
I have tried them all and can attest to each.
The first ingredient in this anti-aging foundation is water, so that makes me and my skin very happy. This is a medium to full coverage, matte-finish foundation that dos not budge all day long while evening skin tone and minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and other imperfections. What I love even more is that the lid flips open and contains full-coverage refillable concealer that blends seamlessly to instantly neutralize under eye circles and hide skin imperfections, too! It comes in 16 shades so one is sure to match your skin tone perfectly.
This is a luxurious moisturizing and nourishing anti-aging cushion foundation that allows for buildable coverage which is ideal if you have anything to hide. It spreads seamlessly onto the skin, creating a smooth finish that reflects light for amazingly youthful luminosity. It’s formulated with red pine extracts, which give the skin radiance and makes it look firmer. It also smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plum blossoms are antioxidant rich and provide clarity to your skin. Sulwhasoo’s unique Radiance Pearl Powder Complex gives your skin remarkable radiance. Oh and it’s also sulfate-free, paraben-free and phthalate-free.
I love this anti-aging foundation so much I tell all my friends it’s the one they must buy! This skin-improving serum foundation creates a semi-matte finish with buildable coverage. The lightweight, fragrance-free, skin-softening formula is powered with neuropeptides and daisy flower extract to visibly improve dark spots and uneven skin tone over time. My only complaint is I wish the Broad Spectrum SPF was higher than 20 so I didn’t also have to apply a separate sunscreen. But I have become a true believer and I do notice my skin improving.
A lot of middle-aged women love this foundation from IT Cosmetics. Bye Bye Lines Foundation was developed with plastic surgeons and it’s not only a foundation but a hydrating anti-aging serum. It’s infused with pure color pigments to seamlessly conceal the look of lines, wrinkles and imperfections. It’s perfect for all skin types and contains anti-aging peptides, caviar extract, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, argan oil and babassu oil, plus vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9 and CoQ10. That’s a ton of good stuff right? Well that’s not all, Bye Bye Lines also features proprietary Drops of Light Optical Blurring Technology for an airbrushed, lit-from-within glow. What’s not to love? You can finally experience luminous, sheer-to-medium coverage that’s good for your skin and makes it look younger, not older!
This is certainly not a new foundation but it continues to be a favorite! In fact it was the first liquid mineral foundation I ever tried many, many years ago. I find powder mineral foundations drying, but this one is very different. It’s a serum with pigment that provides sheer to medium coverage. It hydrates your skin, diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores, evens out skin tone and adheres so well it doesn’t budge. The beads or spheres visible in the airless pump are actually encapsulating liposomes (it looks really cool). State-of-the-art technology prevents active ingredients from degrading and allows them to time-release into the skin. So when you pump out the foundation the spheres blend. There is nothing quite like it.
I hope you found a new anti-aging foundation to love! What’s your favorite foundation? Please let me know.
