Increasingly, savvy women are seeing cosmetics as complementary to skincare, and expecting benefits beyond just coverage. It’s a central belief at La Roche-Posay, where we demand as much from our makeup ranges as we do our skincare. Not sure where to start on your quest for complexion perfection? This go-to guide will help you find your ideal foundation match, and enhance the natural beauty of your skin.
Start With Skincare
The popular ‘no make-up’ make-up look puts the focus firmly on skin. Meaning a tailored skincare regime and daily sun protection with La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios range are essential for a flawless make-up application, and glowing results.
Seek Out Smart Formulas
Smart make-up formulas enhance, rather than mask, the skin. For the best results for your skin type, consider formulas that boast active ingredients borrowed from skincare. For instance, Toleriane Teint Fluid Foundation SPF25 helps soothes irritation with Neurosensine, while the Hyaluronic Acid in Toleriane Teint Hydrating Water-Cream Foundation improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture. And across both cosmetics and skincare, natural antioxidant La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water helps soothe and protect sensitive skin.
Respect Sensitive & Allergy-Prone Skin
La Roche-Posay believes the 265 million women worldwide1 with sensitive skin should expect more from their make-up, as well as their skin care. The Toleriane range of skincare and cosmetics has therefore been formulated to support all types of sensitive and reactive skin. All Toleriane Teint foundations are 100% allergy tested, and free from fragrance and alcohol.
For Sensitive, Dry Skin…
Sensitive, dry skin requires hydrating skincare products and cosmetics that won’t irritate an already impaired barrier. A good regime begins with Toleriane Dermo Cleanser – a gentle fluid milk formula enriched with moisturising glycerin. Ideal for ultra-sensitive and allergic dry skin, Toleriane Ultra is a true minimalist moisturiser, with zero fragrance, alcohol, colourants and lanolin, and Neurosensine and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water for immediate and soothing relief.
Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Toleriane Teint Hydrating Water-Cream Foundation delivers medium level coverage, a radiant satin finish, and 12 hours of hydration for normal to dry sensitive skin. For a lighter coverage, Uvidea XL SPF 50+ BB Cream contains light-reflecting pigments to complement your natural skin tone. Enriched with shea butter, it moisturises and protects against damaging UVA and UVB rays, while helping to prevent sun-induced pigmentation. The non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free formula ensures maximum tolerance. And if dark circles are a concern, they are easily disguised with Toleriane Teint Yellow Corrector Pen.
For Sensitive, Oily to Acne-Prone Skin…
Oily and acne-prone sensitive skin needs skincare that helps balance sebum production, and non-comedogenic make-up that won’t clog the pores. Free from soap, alcohol and colourants, Effaclar Foaming Gel thoroughly removes impurities and excess sebum, without aggravating already inflamed skin. Used after cleansing, Serozinc is a purifying mist that soothes blemishes and mattifies the skin, with zinc sulphate, natural salts and purified water. The third step in an acne regime is Effaclar Duo Plus – a light gel-cream that unclogs pores with salicylic and linoleic acids, while fighting bacteria, and reducing the appearance of pigmentation with ceramide, Procerad™.
For oily skins, Toleriane Teint Mineral Compact Foundation with SPF25 is a hypoallergenic powder foundation that delivers high level, buildable coverage while controlling shine. Perlite absorbs sweat and sebum to ensure your foundation stays put, while 100% mineral pigments correct imperfections without blocking pores.
Or for lighter daily coverage, Effaclar Duo Plus Unifiant combines the acne-fighting efficacy of Effaclar Duo Plus with sheer coverage for a unified complexion. Toleriane Teint Green Corrector Pen will quickly neutralise any remaining redness from pimples or acne scarring.
For Sensitive, Reactive Skin…
If you have sensitised, fragile skin with colour imperfections, such as acne, eczema, rosacea or vitiligo, you may require high-level coverage, but the skin should still be able to breathe. Toleriane Teint Fluid Foundation SPF25 combines ultra-high coverage and sun protection, in a non-comedogenic formula that contains soothing, redness-reducing Neurosensine. By using a hypoallergenic, high tolerance formula, you’ll avoid irritating your already compromised complexion.
Toleriane Teint Green Corrector Pen can also be used to combat redness, while persistent redness and reactivity can be soothed with Rosaliac.
Pairing targeted skincare with the right makeup for you will ensure maximum comfort, while enhancing the beauty of your skin.
