Why Cream Makeup is Better for Mature Skin

Why Cream Makeup is Better for Mature Skin

As we age, the products we know and love begin to interact differently with our skin. Maybe the powder makeup products you stood by for years just aren’t cutting it anymore. Here’s why.

Cream makeup tends to work better with mature skin for a number of reasons. The texture and moisture level of more mature skin is much more different than that of younger skin and therefore requires specialized products that take these factors into account.

There’s no shame in transitioning to a different product as your skin changes. Let’s take a closer look into cream makeup and what you should look out for in a product that is formulated for your skin.

Cream Makeup Stands Above the Rest

We know that cream makeup is better for mature skin, but what is it about this formula that interacts best with your skin type?

Cream makeup reintroduces moisture

As we age, our skin loses the ability to produce as much natural moisture as it once did. This can contribute to more balanced, less acne prone skin, but it can also lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and saggier areas. Cream makeup is just as it says on the label: a creamy, hydrating formula.

Applying a cream product over a powder helps to add that moisture back into skin that may be lacking it. This can lead to plumper, more youthful looking skin even beneath the makeup product.

Cream makeup is more pigmented than powder 

Because the main goal of a powder is to absorb oil or set makeup, it doesn’t deliver as much tint to your skin. Many powders even tout themselves as being translucent entirely.

Cream makeup is the perfect medium to deliver more pigment to your skin, while still allowing for your skin’s natural radiance to glow through. This is essential for women with mature skin who may deal with redness or age spots that a powder alone could not cover.

Powder alone can settle into fine lines

Rather than sinking into and blending with skin like a cream product, powder products sit on top of skin to absorb oils. This can be a great way to “set” a cream makeup look, or absorb natural moisture on oilier skin types, but it is not the best outcome for those of us with mature skin.

When powder sits on top of skin with no cream below to anchor it, it eventually migrates into fine lines and wrinkles, emphasizing that texture rather than blurring it. With a great powder formulated for mature skin, such as the Fièra HD Matte Finishing Powder, this won’t happen, but most powders are not formulated with fine lines in mind.

Not All Cream Makeups are Created Equally

While cream makeups are overall a better choice for mature skin, not all cream makeups are formulated with mature skin in mind. It’s best to find a product specifically created for you, such as the Fièra Luxury Concealer.

The Fièra Luxury Concealer is the only product of its kind, specifically created to address the issues we face as women with mature skin. Not only is it perfectly pigmented to provide all day coverage without ever settling into fine lines, it also contains premium skincare ingredients to leave you with firmer, plumper, more hydrated skin.
