11 best foundation for problem skin

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

A high-quality foundation not only hides skin defects, but also has a healing effect. If you choose the wrong cream, you can aggravate the situation. Therefore, girls with inflammation, acne and blackheads should correctly approach the choice of a tonal and get acquainted with our rating of the best formulations.

When selecting participants, we focused on the following parameters:

  1. natural composition (natural oils, plant extracts, amino acids and vitamins are welcome);
  2. the presence of harmful substances in the formula – silicone, aluminum, propylene glycol, talc and synthetic glycerin;
  3. color spectrum;
  4. the possibility of regular use;
  5. the presence of a pungent odor;
  6. the convenience of use;
  7. duration of the effect.

High cost does not always mean perfect quality. By purchasing an expensive product, the consumer can pay most of the money for the brand itself. A suspiciously cheap foundation can damage the skin.

Therefore, you should not focus on the price of the product, it is better to pay attention to the composition and customer reviews. All important information is reflected in the rating of quality products, invented specifically for skin with scars, excessive oiliness, redness and acne.
