Usually as we get older, our skin gets drier and looses it`s glow, that`s when fine lines and wrinkles make an appearance. Big pores also seem to pose a big problem. Mature skin comes with a whole new set of problems, so finding the best face products for mature skin can be quite the task.
It`s common sense to want to look as best as you can and makeup is a modest resolution to help you do that. I can`t stress enough about how much skincare matters, and if done properly and constantly, will help you age beautifully. Traces of time on your face should not be a scarlet letter.

Selecting the best foundation for mature skin:
You should choose the foundation that will be perfect for you skin type. So here is what you should be looking for according to your skin type.
For Dry Skin: You should go for a liquid formula. Other types of foundations will dry out your already dry skin. You need a foundation that will keep the moisture in your skin not dry it out. So go with liquid foundations.
For Normal Skin: Try tinted moisturizers which are basic tinted lotions and the best choise for those who don`t need special attention for their skin. Nowdays you can find tinted moisturizers with pretty decent coverage.
For Oily Skin: Go with mineral and powder foundations. These types of foundation mainly help with oil control. The powders soak up the oils that seap through your skin. It a good idea to always have a compact powder with you to touch up during the day.
