    Best non-comedogenic skincare products for acne-prone skin

    Did you ever feel grateful that you manage to get through the teenage years without dealing with acne? I know I did! However, what was until not long ago a skin issue associated mostly with the hormonal imbalance during the teenage years, is now a problem for many adults. This means that even if you are after 40 years old, you might still get acne. 

    An improper diet (too much fat and sugar), pollution, excessive stress, not enough sleep - they can all contribute to the overproduction of the sebaceous glands. And this is how we get from a normal or combination skin to a real battlefield.

    How to find THE perfect foundation

    The struggle is real when it comes to foundation. There are so many things that could go wrong with it – it could rub on our clothes, be too dark or too light for our skin tone, it can even make our pores look larger.

    The role of foundation is to even the skin, hide certain imperfections, and get us compliments such as “your skin looks amazing” not “your foundation is great.” Ideally, the perfect foundation should look like we’re not wearing any. Talking about a quest for the Holy Grail! So, how to find THE perfect foundation?

    1. Consider your skin type
