Rodan + Fields Talk Tinted Moisturizer and Foundation, Lip Wrinkles & More
In “Lip Wrinkles: Causes and Treatment” and “How to Choose Between Tinted Moisturizer and Foundation” this week, Rodan + Fields feature Dr. Green.
Lip Wrinkles are a common question in the summer months due to sun exposure, but one of the other main causes of lip wrinkles is Aging skin. “As we age, we gradually produce less and less collagen,” explains cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Michele Green in this article. “This means our skin is less able to repair itself and retain moisture, resulting in drier, thinner, and less elastic skin. This also makes our lips and other areas of our face more prone to fine lines and wrinkles”.
After that she talks about the benefits of a tinted moisturizer such as how it can moisturize your skin. “Most formulas are packed with humectant moisturizing ingredients,” explains Dr. Green. “Humectants draw moisture from the atmosphere and encourage moisture retention within the skin, providing a hydrating effect and a radiant, healthy glow.” Dr. Green also notes that tinted moisturizers are suitable for all skin types. “Tinted moisturizers are available in varying finishes and formulas, meaning that no matter what skin type you have, there is a tinted moisturizer that will suit your skin,” she explains. “Individuals who have oily skin and are prone to acne breakouts should select a tinted moisturizer that is non-comedogenic. If a skincare product is labeled as non-comedogenic, it indicates that it won’t clog the pores, helping to prevent acne breakouts from occurring. Those who have dry skin should instead opt for a tinted moisturizer that contains hydrating skincare ingredients.”
