What is your foundation made of?

What is your foundation made of?

No matter what type of foundation you use, have you ever wondered what it’s made of? Even if you read the ingredients, you might be left not knowing what they really are. 

If you’ve decided to jump on the latest bandwagon, and you’re all about a more natural approach to beauty and health, then your original foundation is a logical starting point. 

Your skin is the foundation for your makeup, it’s where all things start. And now there’s an all-natural beverage mix that helps cultivate beauty from within using science-backed nutrition. It’s called Foundation Beauty Elixir, and it helps luxuriate your natural beauty, providing that extra "Wow" to all the dazzling looks you love.

Your skin is where beauty begins

Your skin is your barrier for protection against the elements like the sun and pollution, but it's also a reflection of how you express your best self. Keeping it healthy with nutrients like collagen, prebiotics, and blue spirulina can help maintain its youthful glow while keeping it smooth and ready for showcasing your style with the best lines of makeup.

Your skin is truly your canvas for self-expression, so help yourself get more comfortable and confident in your own skin by imbuing it with essential nutrients. After all, no one likes to skimp on makeup, why should your true foundation be any different?

How to build on great skin: Which foundation should you use?

Because each foundation has different ingredients that are also made differently, they produce different results. For instance, did you know that as you age and develop fine lines and wrinkles, it’s best to stay away from powder foundations because the powder settles into these little imperfections?

Here are some other tips you can use to make your foundation decisions.

Foundation Beauty Elixir

Hair La Vie's Foundation Beauty Elixir is an all-natural beauty elixir to cultivate beauty from within, but the bonus is glowing skin on the outside. This is a perfect start to any foundation.  

This delicious, nutrient-rich, and easy to mix drink contains rejuvenating collagen, skin-smoothing prebiotics, keratin, and plant-based superfoods like blue spirulina. This not only helps to promote skin health, but it can also boost your overall health. 

Powder Foundation

This foundation is lightweight and creates a more natural look. It’s best for young people who have few or faint blemishes. It also works well on oily skin, as it absorbs the offending oils. Powder foundation is often the best option if you’re prone to sweating.

One drawback of powder foundation, as mentioned, is that it settles in wrinkles and emphasizes them.

Water-based foundation

Designed to be gentle and forgiving, a water-based foundation is ideal for someone with sensitive skin or wrinkles. Some of them also contain nourishing agents to help boost the health of your skin.

Water-based foundations are lightweight and provide more coverage than a powder foundation, but they might not be enough for someone with dark blemishes.

Oil-based foundation

This type of foundation used to be more popular than it is today because people tend to shy away from the thickness. They’re not for everyone and should be avoided if you have oily or combination skin.

People with extremely dry skin are the best demographic for this type of foundation. The extra moisture and nutrients give your skin a youthful and dewy finish.

Silicone-based foundation

Silicone foundations provide a smooth and heavy finish, which covers more blemishes. It allows for sweating without reapplication because of its “sticky” nature. Silicone can be good for dry skin and works well on combination skin, too.

There are some people with sensitivities and allergies to silicones, and they should avoid silicone products.

The most important foundation of all

If you really want to look your best, you need to pay more attention to the original foundation–your skin. Improving the condition and health of your skin will give you a better canvas to start with, and then you won’t have to rely on as much foundation or maybe not at all.

Your skin looks better when it’s healthier. The healthiest skin comes from a combination of avoiding things that are bad for you and focusing on making good skin choices.

♦ Your diet plays a significant role in your skin health, but just eating right might not be enough. Focus on foods filled with antioxidants, collagen, olive oil, omega-3, and foods rich in vitamins and minerals.

♦ Supplement your diet with Foundation Beauty Elixir Drink Mix. A proprietary mix of collagen, keratin, blue spirulina, and probiotic superfoods is designed specifically to improve your skin appearance and health.

♦ Cutting back on alcohol can help your skin. Alcohol has been connected to a higher rate of skin cancer

♦ Make stress less impactful by exercising regularly and practicing mindful meditation.

♦ Prioritize restful sleep with a target of at least eight hours each night.

♦ Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

Final thoughts

Your skin truly is the foundation for your makeup, and improving its condition will give your appearance a finished glow. This holistic approach to greater beauty comes from within, which involves taking care of your skin. 

Foundation Beauty Elixir’s unique mix of beauty-boosting nutrients works naturally to provide you with the complete foundation of beauty and wellness from the inside out. This creates the perfect canvas for the confident expression of your true self, with or without makeup.
