What are sun foundations and why we could no longer do without them? MESAUDA

Make-up should enhance our beauty, but also protect it! That's why sun foundations are the ideal products for a perfect make-up routine.

Make-up shows off our natural beauty, enhances it and underlines its special features. But what many people forget is that make-up also serves to protect our skin and prevent external agents from attacking it. This is why sun foundations are gaining in popularity, becoming the favourite products of many beauty addicts.

Moisturising, covering and protective, foundations with sun protection perform the double task of evening out the complexion and protecting our skin from the sun's rays. 

We sometimes forget that our skin (especially facial skin) should always be protected, not just in summer and not just when we go to the beach. The presence of sun filters, in fact, helps to combat skin ageing and the formation of sun spots. And it doesn't matter what age you are or what type of skin you have, because the sun's rays can be aggressive for anyone at any time. So when it comes to sun foundations, the earlier you start, the better!

Why use sun creams and foundations?

From this introduction it seems that sun foundations are the solution to all our problems. Well, that's not exactly the case! Yes, they do provide a valuable aid for the care of our skin and, with their different formulations, they can be adapted to any need. But they are not enough on their own and should always be accompanied by a proper protective routine.

The advice is to prepare the skin on your face using a cream that also contains sun protection factor, to keep it healthy, beautiful and supple. You can choose classic sunscreen creams, which will create a kind of protective film on the face.

However, it is important to remember that no sunscreen, not even what used to be called 'total shield' sunscreens, can protect us 100% from the sun's rays, but UV filters are still the most effective shield for limiting damage and keeping the skin moisturised and supple.

So, should we be using sunscreen every day? According to a study by the University of Manchester and the Queensland University and Institute for Medical Research published in 2013 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, using sunscreen products regularly and correctly will delay ageing and fight the appearance of spots.

Protective and performing, always!

It seems clear, then, that sun foundations are to become our new beauty allies. And if you have never tried them, now is the right time to start!

As with any type of product, of course, check the formulation and choose the product that best suits your needs. But above all, always remember that the presence of a sun protection factor should not affect the performance of foundation, but rather enhance it!

Opt for products that are opaque but not heavy, that do not create a "masking" effect and that are comfortable.

The Skin by Mesauda

Mesauda has decided to expand its range of foundations with a new product that is perfect for the summer, but can be used at any time of the year. The new The Skin is the moisturising fluid foundationwitha luminous finish with sun protection factor 15.

Its formulation makes it perfect for different skin types: thanks to the high concentration of water it is light and non-occlusive, and creates a natural and radiant second-skin effect. Fluid and velvety, it gives a pleasant feeling of freshness on contact with the skin. It also has a medium coverage and anadjustable texture for a naturally perfect complexion.

But the most innovative feature of The Skin is its sun protection factor - SPF 15 - which makes it one of the most comprehensive foundations ever created by the company. It protects the dermis from UV rays, combating premature skin ageing and the formation of sun spots. It also creates a protective shield against the harmful effects of blue light emitted by computer and smartphone screens.

Simply apply a few drops of the product to the back of your hand and spread a small amount over the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin with the help of the brushes from the centre towards the contours of the face and neck until the desired coverage is achieved.

A unique and innovative product designed to enhance beauty and protect it at the same time. An essential part of our beauty routine which, we are certain, will improve the quality of our skin.

The second-skin effect enclosed in a latest-generation foundation, the lightness of a veil and freshness at your fingertips: because La Pelle loves skin.
