No makeup look is complete without foundation. It is the foundation of your glam after all. Unfortunately, popular foundation formulas are lurking with harmful ingredients that can hinder your skin’s health and cause concerns like irritation, inflammation, clogged pores, and premature aging, which is why dermatologists urge makeup wearers to be careful with the products they keep in their makeup bags. In fact, most say that’s best to avoid foundations with parabens because of their negative effect on the skin.
“I read a journal article about some bench research that was done in the past few years, and it showed there to be potential acceleration of skin aging,” Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York, tells Huffington Post. “I just know that, in terms of how much I’m putting on, and it’s in so many different products, that I wouldn’t even risk it for the slightest amount. I won’t do parabens.”
