OXIDISING FOUN­DA­TION

Herworld (Malaysia) - - HER LOOK -

When you re­alise that your foun­da­tion looks darker af­ter you’ve ap­plied it onto your skin, that’s how you know it has ox­i­dised. This is mainly due to your nat­u­ral oils mix­ing and re­act­ing to the min­er­als in the foun­da­tion. And some­times, a very high pH value can also cause it to darken. When this hap­pens, just blot the ex­cess oil off with a fa­cial tis­sue – this also helps to pick up some of the un­wanted or­ange hue. Then ap­ply some pow­der that’s a shade lighter and it should do the trick for the rest of the day! To prevent this from hap­pen­ing in the fu­ture, al­ways use a toner to bal­ance out your pH level or ap­ply a primer to cre­ate a bar­rier be­tween your skin and foun­da­tion.
