Because dry, oily, combination and sensitive skin have different needs, they can't use the same skin tints. To pick the formula that will be the most comfortable to wear and that will also reveal the beauty of your skin, follow the guide.
Which Serum Foundation to Choose According to Your Skin Type?
Tinted Serum for Normal to Combination Skin.
Normal to combination skin is the most convenient and easy to satisfy. However, even these skin types can quickly become unbalanced if they are given formulas that are too rich or, conversely, too astringent. The right makeup balance? The serum foundation with vitamin C, olive squalane and aloe vera. The first ingredient helps keep skin luminous by trapping free radicals generated by sun exposure, pollution, or smoking… The second repairs the hydrolipidic film while the last nourishes and soothes the epidermis. All of this while offering adjustable coverage to hide the small imperfections that can appear from time to time.
Tinted Serum for Dull Skin.
When pores are clogged or the hydrolipidic barrier is not doing its job properly, skin sometimes loses its radiance. To restore it, a tinted serum is an excellent option. But not just any serum! Only one that includes vitamin C, known to boost radiance and even out the skin, olive squalane and aloe vera works with this type of problem. Together, these different ingredients nourish the epidermis and allow the skin barrier to reform. With them, the skin is not only beautified by the pigments in the tinted formula, but it is also treated.
Tinted Serum for Dry Skin.
Tinted Serum for Sensitive Skin.
Sensitive skin is hard to pin down and needs a medium-coverage complexion formula that can both even out and conceal certain small imperfections, all without containing petrochemicals, alcohol or abrasive ingredients that will damage its protective barrier. The right balance? A serum foundation containing hyaluronic acid to plump up the skin but also aloe vera to soothe it while providing a good dose of hydration to keep it comfortable all day long until makeup removal.
Tinted Serum for Oily Skin With Imperfections.
Because oily skin tends to naturally secrete excess sebum, it needs a tinted serum that can regulate it and mattify the shiny areas that appear very quickly during the day, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). In addition, this type of skin is prone to imperfections because excess sebum not only hinders the renewal of the epidermis but also tends to clog pores, which are often dilated in oily skin.
The best solution for them is to use serum foundation enriched withzinc, an active ingredient that acts in depth to purify the epidermis and fight imperfections, but also with matifying polymers such as bamboo extract, and moisturizing active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or aloe vera. This combination of ingredients, along with intensely colored pigments to cover impurities without suffocating pores, is the perfect blend for oily skin with blemishes.
Tinted Serum for Mature Skin.
Because mature skin tends to dry out, lack radiance and mark, it needs a tinted serum with a molecule that can bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water into skin cells. Its name? Hyaluronic acid, an active ingredient that gives the skin bounce and allows it to reveal its full radiance without the tinted serum creasing in fine lines. This serum foundation must also contain ferulic acid to firm the skin and fight against skin photodamage by minimizing wrinkles and fine lines.
