7 Best Natural Foundations for Aging Skin


Have you ever taken a look at the ingredients on your makeup bottles and packages? Lots of words that you can’t pronounce let alone know the origins of.

I like to know what I’m putting on my skin and especially on my face. Makeup brands are turning the page on using harsh chemicals and leaning towards natural ingredients to create their makeup products.

Our skin loses elasticity as we age, yes this happens to all of us. Also, as we get older, our skin tends to react to certain ingredients it didn’t use to. Often, the makeup that we are applying is contributing to a buildup of toxins on our skin and over time this results in clogged pores and unsightly rashes. Time to change our makeup!

Today, we have more options than ever to choose our makeup wisely. Choosing a natural foundation designed for aging skin is a good idea for women over 50. A natural foundation means that it is free of harmful chemicals, dyes, synthetic fragrances, and preservatives. Oftentimes, makeup that is produced with natural ingredients tends to be cruelty-free, vegan, and packaged with the environment in mind.

These are some of the words to look for to know that your foundation is natural:

  • Natural
  • Organic
  • Vegan
  • No preservatives
