Teach me Tuesday-Tinted Moisturizer

| Tuesday, May 15, 2012

With the seasons changing, makeup changes too!
Spring is here and Summer is nearing closer. We should all be transitioning our makeup, both products and looks, to reflect this.

We all know the importance of wearing sunscreen at the beach, err floating down the river (#yyc), but what about for everyday? And what about in our foundation?
Well, if you want to keep your skin youthful, a good way to do that is with SPF.

In Winter months, most of us want a full coverage foundation. In summer this type of foundation is too heavy and really burdens that natural summer glow.

Today we will educate you on how to choose a tinted moisturizer that fits your needs and protects your skin from the harmful rays omitted from that big 'ol star in the sky!

First off, what is a tinted moisturizer?

Simply put, it is a color-tinted moisturizer with sunscreen ranging from SPF 15-50

What does it do?

A tinted moisturizer will provide you with light weight, sheer coverage while protecting your skin with SPF-the ultimate anti-ager!

Any other helpful tips?

But of course!

1. If you have oily skin, look for oil free formulations. Some even come in a matte texture. 
Try Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer for oily skin. 

2. Some tinted moisturizers contain "skin tighteners"-face lift in a bottle!
Great for mature skin, these tinted moisturizers contain the ingredients Glycopeptide and Hyaluronic acid to fill in fine lines and make you taut.

3. If you live in a dry climate (that's us, Albertans!), look for hydrating ingredients in your tinted moisturizer. A good moisturizing ingredient is glycerine-this is highly recommended for dehydrated skin.

4. A good all in one product is a BB cream-now available in tinted moisturizer formula
*If you missed our blog a while back about BB creams, check it out and find out what all the rage is about!

5. Many tinted moisturizers have illuminating ingredients to give the face either shimmer or glow using light diffusing ingredients.

6. For the sporty fashionista, there are sweat proof tinted moisturizers on the market, yay!

There are lots of tinted moisturizers on the market. Do your research for the one that suits you.

Summer looks to try...
