I absolutely live for multitasking beauty products—they save time and cut down on the fuss factor. While foundation, concealer, and other complexion-enhancing face products tend to get a bad rap for being pore-clogging and breakout-inducing, there are surprisingly plenty of makeup-skincare hybrids infused with skin-loving active ingredients that not only help to conceal your imperfections, but that actually improve them over time. These multipurpose foundations not only help you fake perfect skin, but they can actually help blast away breakouts, soften the appearance of fine lines, erode uneven texture and brighten up a dull complexion with continuous use.
Now, we’re certainly not suggesting that you should completely swear off your normal skincare line-up in lieu of these skin-enhancing bases, but if you’re going to wear one anyway, why not opt for one that’s super-charged with built-in skincare benefits? Rather than relying on makeup to disguise our flaws, it seems logical to invest in a product that will actually reduce the need for foundation by tackling common skin woes. Check out some of our favorite bases that not only camouflage redness, acne, and fine lines, but also help to get rid of them while they’re at it.
