What is Skincare in Makeup

Enhancing the appearance AND health of your skin

In the world of beauty, the struggle with makeup has been an age-old tale of clogged pores, breakouts, redness, and the incessant cycle of covering skin imperfections with layers of makeup. But amidst this turmoil, a revolution is underway, where skincare ingredients in makeup formulations are transforming the landscape of colour cosmetics. Enter the era of skincare-infused makeup, a game-changer in enhancing not only your appearance but also the health of your skin.

What is Skincare in Makeup?

Skincare in makeup is a fusion of ingredients designed to not only enhance but also improve skin health. These products offer a unique blend of makeup and skincare ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea and Vitamin E, that work to ensure your skin not only looks flawless but also benefits from active ingredients. The objectives of skincare cosmetics extend beyond mere coverage; they include cleansing the skin, maintaining its moisture balance, stimulating skin metabolism, and shielding it from harmful UV radiation, thus enabling the skin to function optimally.

The Benefits of Skincare in Makeup

  1. Improved skin texture and tone:

Infused with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and argan oil, products such as INIKA Organic Liquid Foundation work to hydrate the skin, leaving it smoother and more supple. By minimising the appearance of pores, this formula creates a flawless canvas for makeup application. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant that attracts moisture to the skin, helping to keep it hydrated throughout the day. When included in foundation, it provides an additional layer of hydration, preventing dryness and flakiness, it also works to plump the skin for a more youthful appearance.

Argan oil is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids, making it deeply nourishing for the skin. When included in foundation, it helps to soften and condition the skin, leaving it feeling supple and moisturised. Both hyaluronic acid and argan oil have antioxidant properties, which help to protect the skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals. By including these ingredients in foundation, it provides an added layer of defence against pollution and UV radiation.

2. Daily protection from pollution, UV rays, and blue light:

With the inclusion of ingredients like shea butter, iron oxides and green tea, skincare-infused makeup provides a shield against environmental stressors. A product like the Manasi 7 Skin Enhancer offers not only coverage but also defence against harmful pollutants and UV radiation. Shea butter is a highly moisturising ingredient rich in fatty acids and vitamins. When incorporated into the Skin Enhancer, it provides intense hydration, along with anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe irritation and redness, caused by environmental stress on the skin.

The addition of green tea works as a contains powerful antioxidants. Rich in catechins and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which help to neutralize free radicals, green tea helps protect the skin from oxidative stress and premature ageing. For adaptive colour, Iron oxides are natural pigments that provide colour in the Skin Enhancer. In addition to imparting a beautiful tint to the product, iron oxides also offer mild sun protection by scattering and absorbing harmful UV rays, not a solution to daily SPF, but a second line of defence layered over your daily SPF.

3. Less Breakouts and Acne:

By incorporating ingredients like shea butter and sweet almond oil, skincare-infused makeup helps nourish and soothe the skin, reducing the likelihood of breakouts and acne. The INIKA Organic Full Coverage Concealer not only conceals blemishes but also promotes skin health with its enriching formula. Raw unrefined shea butter is packed with antibacterial and anti-microbial properties, making it an excellent remedy for inflammatory acne.

Bacteria is one of the central culprits behind the beginning of a breakout, combining with dead skin cells and excess sebum to create a pocket of inflammation in the pore. Sweet almond oil contains linoleic acid, which effectively dissolves accumulated sebum that obstructs pores and triggers breakouts. Ideal for reactive skin, this ingredient is non-comedogenic, ensuring it does not contribute to pore blockage. It’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive or acne-prone skin.

4. Reduced inflammation and redness:

Formulations containing ingredients such as zinc stearate and vitamin E, like the Rageism Flawless Finish Setting Powder, help calm inflammation and minimise redness, ensuring a more even complexion. Zinc stearate known for its anti-inflammatory properties works by calming irritated skin and soothing redness, making it particularly effective for conditions such as acne, rosacea, or dermatitis. Zinc stearate helps regulate oil production, which further contributes to reducing inflammation and preventing breakouts. Its ability to form a protective barrier on the skin also aids in shielding it from environmental aggressors that exacerbates inflammation.

Vitamin E has been found to inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are molecules that promote inflammation in the body. By reducing the levels of these inflammatory molecules, vitamin E helps to dampen the inflammatory response in the skin reducing redness and inflammation in the skin. Making this the perfect finish for sensitive and redness prone skin.
