How to Choose an Organic Foundation

Let me guess… you have been buying the same foundation from the same makeup counter or drugstore for years.  You love that you can sample the product before you buy, and you get that immediate satisfaction of walking away with your little beauty purchase?

What if I told you that your little beauty purchase is full of toxic ingredients that could actually be aging your skin, and even worse…. but we will leave it at that.

What if I told you that there are so many amazing organic foundations that you can feel good about putting on your skin?  How about skincare and makeup combined?  Yep!  These foundations will actually treat and improve your skin!  Are you in?! Here’s a quick guide to helping you choose an organic foundation that is tailored to treat and improve your skin concerns!

Sensitive, and Acne Prone Skin
Highly reactive sensitive skin, that doesn’t adjust well to change.  Sensitive and acne prone skin loves pure mineral foundations.  Nothing added other than mineral pigments.  It’s the simplest of all organic foundations.  All you need is a flat top brush to apply, and you can actually achieve a customized coverage.  It can be applied lightly or you can also build it to achieve a full coverage.  It is wonderful for sensitive skin, as there are no irritants in the product.  It is perfect for acne prone skin, because you can really target where you need the coverage, and it won’t irritate the skin.

If you are in need of a mineral foundation, but really dislike the idea of working with loose powders, no fear, Fitglow Beauty is here!  This Flawless on the Go mineral foundation is the most brilliant design.  The loose minerals are housed in the handle, and are released through the built in brush.  The amount of product you get is adjustable, and this design ensures you get a naturally even application. This mineral blend contains antioxidant plant extracts that will also protect your skin.

Not worried about loose mineral powders?  The Hynt Beauty Velluto Pure Powder foundation gives a beautiful velvety finish to the skin, and the minerals provide hydration for the skin, without the skin ever looking oily. It will leave your skin feeling light and flawless. You will be left with a natural look that doesn’t settle into fine lines, or crack throughout the day.

Oily Skin
Skin that may be a little bit acne prone or gradually gets oily throughout the day.  Your biggest concern is finding a foundation that will minimize oil and cover imperfections.  There are actually two really ideal foundations for oily skin.  The first is the mineral foundation, which was mentioned above, under sensitive skin.  It works perfectly for oily skin types as well.  It is wonderful for absorbing oil and covering any areas of concern.

Secondly the Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation is also perfect for oily skin.  Now, don’t be scared off by the word “cream” in it’s title.  This foundation is actually a bit of a dryer cream, and gives amazing coverage that will keep oil at bay. This foundation is ideal if you have sensitive skin. The packaging is pure luxury, you won’t miss your old department store foundation one bit, I promise you!  The initial purchase of this foundation comes with the beautiful weighted metal compact.  Refills can subsequently be purchased, and inserted into the compact.  This is truly and eco-friendly design.

Normal Skin

Beautiful skin that may only need the slightest bit of concealing, or maybe you like a full coverage.  Either way, your skin will work well with any of the above mentioned foundations. But saving the best for last, is my personal favourite the Fitglow Beauty Vita-Active Foundation.  It is amazing, and what I use on a daily basis.  It contains antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients, and gives a beautiful healthy finish to the skin.  With regular use this foundation will actually improve the skins elasticity, and overall appearance. I truly believe this foundation will work for almost any skin type, unless you like a heavy noticeable coverage.  This foundation blends in and looks like healthy natural skin.  More about this foundation below.

Dry and Mature Skin

You wake up in the morning with dry patches and dehydrated skin, and it’s an ongoing battle to keep your skin hydrated, and flaking and patchy foundation is a real concern.  The perfect foundation for you is the Fitglow Beauty Vita-Active Foundation (mentioned above.)  This foundation actually contains ingredients that will help hydrate the skin, and leave it feeling healthy and rejuvenated.  It contains organic ingredients that boost collagen production, and reduce the appearance of sun spots and hyper pigmentation.  The anti-aging benefits are unmatched. The whole Fitglow ideology is skincare and makeup combined. I cannot stress enough how much I love this foundation.  I have several foundations in my stash, and this is the one I pick on a daily basis.
