Dear LovelySkin: What is the Best Foundation for Aging Skin?

Dear LovelySkin,
What is the best foundation for aging skin?
-Anonymous

If you’ve been wearing the same foundation for years, it’s probably time for a switch. Similar to skin care, makeup for mature skin should be creamier and more hydrating. Choose a cream or liquid foundation, which will help add moisture to dry, mature skin. Liquid foundations give skin a natural, dewy finish instead of creating a heavy, caked-on look.

Avoid powder formulas, which can settle in fine lines and wrinkles, accentuating signs of aging. Powder and stick foundations are also harder to blend into skin. Unless your skin is very oily, you’ll want to stay away from products that promise a matte finish because these can make skin appear dry and flaky.

As an added benefit, many liquid foundations are enhanced with anti-aging ingredients to help give mature skin a more youthful appearance. Each time you apply foundation, these formulas work to cover imperfections while diminishing the signs of aging. Here are a few of our favorite foundations for aging skin:

Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Foundation SPF 20 contains a blend of six peptides and neuropeptides to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. These peptides also help stimulate collagen production for smoother, firmer skin. With each application, this oil-free foundation offers lightweight, buildable coverage for a flawless finish.

glo minerals Luxe Liquid Foundation is formulated with light-diffusing diamond powder to soften the signs of aging. Like all glo minerals makeup, this foundation also contains an exclusive antioxidant blend of vitamins A, C and E as well as green tea extract. These antioxidants help protect the complexion against harmful free radicals while titanium dioxide and octinoxate offer broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Luxe Liquid Foundation creates sheer to medium coverage with a dewy finish.

jane iredale Liquid Minerals is a LovelySkin customer favorite. This liquid mineral foundation contains several anti-aging ingredients, including hyaluronic acid to attract moisture to skin, vitamin C to promote a more even tone and coenzyme Q10 to help diminish the signs of aging. Light-reflecting minerals in this lightweight foundation help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin tone. You’ll achieve sheer to medium coverage with each application.

Exuviance CoverBlend Skin Caring Foundation SPF 20 helps reduce the signs of aging as it minimizes skin imperfections. This oil-free foundation is powered by a highly effective polyhydroxy acid that helps promote a more youthful appearance. Its smudge-resistant formula offers light to medium coverage with a natural finish that lasts all day.

Guinot Youth Time Foundation smooths fine lines and wrinkles with a unique formula. This foundation contains hyaluronic acid spherical fillers to hydrate and plump the complexion and light-diffusing mineral pigments to minimize shadows while illuminating skin. Green tea extract and vitamin E also provide antioxidant protection from harmful free radicals. With each application, this cream foundation feels light on the skin and creates a natural finish.
