We all dream of waking up with skin that is even-toned, supple and glowing. But between environmental factors, hormones and a little thing called life, waking up like this is easier said than done, and frequently comes with a side of toxic ingredients and pore-clogging fillers. Thanks to W3LL PEOPLE‘s collection of powerful, plant-based foundation products you can say hello to the glow you deserve, with the added benefit of knowing you are also treating your skin with a dose of powerful botanical ingredients such as aloe, pomegranate, green tea, algae, caffeine and broccoli seed oil.
The key to looking Instagram-star-flawless with minimal effort is using a product that is designed for your skin type. Skin type is determined largely by genetics, but can also be connected the climate where we live. People in cold, dry climates tend to see that reflected in their skin, while people in hot, humid climates tend to have skin that is oily.
Need help determining your skin type? The quickest and simplest way is to take a sheet of blotting paper and press into skin in various places on your face. Hold it up to light so that you can see how much oil was absorbed. If the sheet:
Has little to no oil: your skin is likely on the dry side.
Has some/a moderate amount of oil: you likely have normal/combination skin.
Is saturated with oil: you have oily skin.
Armed with that knowledge you are now ready to learn more about our products to determine which one will be the best fit for your skin type. Ready? Let’s go.
