Best Tinted Moisturisers And How To Use It
If you struggle to find the right foundation to suit your skin, then consider a tinted moisturiser instead. They can give you a fresh, even complexion and keep your skin hydrated, so try swapping out your usual foundation for a lighter option that will still give you coverage as well as hydration.
Is tinted moisturiser bad for your skin? A good one will look after your skin; tinted moisturisers hydrate your skin while adding a hint of colour. You can choose a tinted moisturiser with added SPF, anti-ageing properties, or extra hydration for dry skin. Take care not to apply it too thickly, in order to prevent blocking your pores, and always cleanse your face thoroughly at night.
Simply apply tinted moisturiser with your fingers just as you would a normal moisturiser; alternatively, use a makeup brush for an extra smooth finish. You can use a tinted moisturiser instead of both day cream and foundation; alternatively, you can double-up and use it on top of your normal moisturiser for added hydration.
