Choosing liquid or cream foundations with key ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin will help keep skin moisturized, Dr. Wu says, and prevent the foundation from settling into fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, products with sunscreen, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients like retinol and peptides can actually protect and improve your skin.
