Here's How to Go Foundation-Free

Updated: Jul 11


It’s possible to get radiant skin to flaunt forever


When it comes to makeup, nothing’s more important than a good base. And by that, we mean clear, glowing skin free from blemishes, large pores, and breakouts—something made possible only with high-coverage foundation.

But piling on a ton of BB cream or other liquid foundations isn’t going to help conceal your skin’s true flaws. It’s best to let your skin breathe occasionally, especially if it’s already irritated or clogged from daily makeup use. Yes, we mean to go completely foundation-free!

It may sound daunting, especially when airbrushed skin is the name of the game, but trust us when we say these 3 quick tips are worth a shot.


1. Exfoliate for glowing skin


Do you find yourself suffering from congested pores and pimples often, despite using only organic or “natural” makeup? The truth is, makeup is not something that should sit on your face all the time. Plus, pore-clogging concealers or chemical-laden makeup lead to dead skin cells building up on your face – causing you to look tired with dull skin all the time.

How to deal: Start gentle exfoliating on a regular basis. You don’t have to reach out for a rough face loofah if that’s not your thing. The Moisturizers Co. Ultra Pore Refiner Anti-Blemish Night Cream with Niacinamide contains a mild concentration of AHA (0.5% of Lactic and Glycolic Acids) to moisturise while reducing the build-up of oils and dead skin cells on your skin for clear, supple and beautiful skin.


2. Load up on vitamins – inside and out


When you lack vitamins, you quickly realize the impact it has: shallow, dull skin. What happens next? You frantically try to cover these imperfections up with foundation and concealer, only to face the same problem again the next day. It’s an endless cycle.

How to deal: Get your vitamins in you, and on you! Besides indulging in yummy, vitamin-enriched food like salmon, tuna, or nuts like sunflower seeds, using Vitamin C on your face helps to fade discoloration or sunspots. Try the Brightening Moisturizing Cream with Arbutin and Vitamins from The Moisturizers Co. formulated with potent concentrations of Vitamin A, C, and E derivatives, which gently removes pigmentation and purifies skin to give you effortlessly clear, glowing skin.


3. Target specific problem spots


Do you have certain parts of your face with perpetual blotchiness or post-blemish dark spots that are taking too long to heal or redness due to acne? Instead of caking foundation over your entire face to hide the flaws, take control once and for all!

How to deal: Moisturisers like The Moisturizers Co. Cell Regenerate Gel Cream with black mulberries, or the Ultra Pore Refiner Anti-Blemish Night Cream, which contains niacinamide, are effective day and night creams in encouraging cells turnover, calming inflammation and soothing irritated skin thanks to their antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Foundation is aptly named because it’s meant to work as the first layer of your makeup. But with radiant skin that emits its own beautiful glow, you can do away with foundation on days where you don’t need such heavy makeup. This does wonders for your skin in the long run! Also, we bet you’re surprised that moisturisers play such a huge role in yielding better skin! Be sure to pick up one of the carefully curated formulas from The Moisturizers Co. and reap the benefits today.
