Using a tinted moisturizer with a good sunscreen can be really helpful for those of us living with a chronic illness. Medication can dehydrate our skin and make us more sensitive to the sun's rays. Sogood moisturizer with a broad spectrum SPF. And if you are committed to that step, you might as well give your face a bit of sheer color while you are at it.
As I've said before, I often feel worse when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror on days when I am having a flare. Sometimes, I am feeling too crappy to do much of anything in the way of makeup. But even when I am at my worst, I can almost always smooth a little tinted moisturizer on my skin. Because it has light coverage, I don't have to worry too much about blending and lines of demarcation. I can easily take it all the way down my neck to extend the benefits of the product to that area. We need moisture and sunscreen on both our face and neck.
I have tried a lot of tinted moisturizers and have found it difficult to settle on one that I really like. This week, I received an order from Haute Look and it contained various "TheBalm" products. One of these was their tinted moisturizer called "Balm Shelter." I ordered the 'light' color and it was perfect for my skin.
I'd love to know what you use as a tinted moisturizer. Leave me a comment and let me know!
