The sun-kissed glow of a summer tan is attractive. I hate to lose it as we tiptoe into the colder months, where the sun hides its smile and our skin lightens a shade (or 3)! If you are like me, you do not like the heaviness of many foundations. So, I steer clear of that option for my skin. I like a natural, light, minimal make-up look. In the winter, I use mineral/antioxidant-infused tinted creams & powders on my face to hold onto that sunny glow! Here is a quick post on the ones I've had a pleasant experience with, using on my sensitive skin. * Note: My skin tans well, so the color tones I gravitate towards are the medium tints. You may be different, so be sure to color match your skin tone. Please read on for 3 suggested tinted facial moisturizers, their benefits, & cost:
1. Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue: This formula has been my running favorite for the past year. The reason being, it has a light, gel-like cream consistency, which I am a fan of. I appreciate any moisturizer that is light like air on my sensitive skin. It hydrates well and mixes effortlessly with my vitamin C serums. I use the ginger tint.
