Ready for fresh autumn skin? A tinted moisturiser could be the answer.

There’s often a debate over whether you should be wearing foundation or tinted moisturiser, or both. The ultimate answer is that it’s entirely up to you and depends completely on what coverage you’re looking for. The main difference between the two is the amount of coverage offered. Tinted moisturiser offers colour but not coverage and foundation provides a more pigmented colour, as well as the ability to cover blemishes and fine lines. So, as we said, what you wear is totally up to you and what you’re looking for. However, here’s why we think a tinted moisturiser could save your skin this September.

The maskne issue

By now, you might well have fallen victim to the new skin issue, ‘maskne’. If you’re suffering, here’s how to deal with it. Maskne is one of the reasons we think a tinted moisturiser could be the best option for your skin this September. We know that face masks and coverings are going to be here to stay for a while now, and one of the things that can cause breakouts from wearing them is makeup. However, we don’t expect anyone to not wear makeup until masks are no longer necessary (it could be a while!), so wearing something lighter on your skin could help. Here’s where the tinted moisturiser comes in. While it still offers some colour, it isn’t as heavy on the skin as foundation and therefore will help to not clog your pores under your mask.

A subtle glow

Some of you (if you’re lucky) might have a sun-kissed glow from you summer vacay or staycay. This doesn’t mean that you need to go out and buy a brand new foundation colour until your tan fades, the chances are that you’ll be left with half a bottle left until next summer and then there’s a whole other issue of expiry dates. Using a tinted moisturiser all year round makes it easy to blend to your tanned skin colour and means you’ll be left with a really natural, subtle glow. People will be asking for your skincare tips in no time!

Seasonal rosy cheeks

Similarly to the previous reason, tinted moisturiser is great for letting your natural pigment show through. This means that when you’re out in the cold and your cheeks go a little rosy, they’ll come through and look completely natural (who even needs blusher?).
