Radiant, well-hydrated skin are two common traits in youthful skin. But as we age, the bright complexions of our youth can change, leaving us with fine lines, wrinkles, and skin that’s dehydrated. Luckily, aside from making sure our skincare regimen is up to par, there are a few incredible foundation formulas on the market made specifically for mature skin. What’s even more exciting is the fact that there’s an option for every budget. Whether you’re at the drugstore or looking for something more high-end, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from!

Note that even as we age, our skin won’t magically fall into one category in terms of what we’ll need to care for it and have it looking its best always. For example, while dryness is certainly a concern, perhaps your skin will simply be more sensitive rather than dry altogether. The key point to remember in all of this is to do your research and test as many formulas as you can until you find one that you absolutely love. Do this, and you’ll be on your way to beautiful looking skin in no time.
