Every once in a while, my skin has a temper tantrum to the tune of spots all over my chin, which I then pick at. Then, I have to deal with red marks that last way longer than the blemishes. It's a problem. Yeah, I should probably have more self-control, but nobody's perfect, ya know?
Anyway, on those days, I find myself reaching for the Lorac POREfection Foundation SPF 20. It's medium to full coverage, but the thing is, it really doesn't look or feel like I am wearing a mask, which for me is key. It's not fun to feel like your skin doesn't look its best. It's even more annoying to feel like you've caked makeup on top of it and still don't look your best. Needless to say, this foundation is my bad skin day superhero. For more on why it's amazing, I turned to Dean Fournier, Lead LORAC Pro Artist.
