Perfect Your Skin-Care Routine for a No-Foundation Day

Yes, you can go without full-coverage foundation—just make sure you follow a few simple skin-care steps so your skin still looks great.

Your makeup routine probably starts with foundation. It is, as the name suggests, an integral building block to any makeup routine. But not every day needs to be a full-coverage affair. In fact, opting to forgo foundation is a great low-maintenance way to embrace a more easy and natural look—not to mention it will save you some time in the morning. Plus, getting into a great skin-care routine to improve your complexion sans makeup will only benefit your skin—and any future makeup application—in the long run. But, to start, let’s talk about helping your skin with some essential items like L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Kiwi Scrub for Oily Skin to get it looking its best so you can rock your no-foundation visage.

A few reasons why you might ditch foundation

  • You’re low on time in the morning
  • You won’t have an opportunity to touch up your skin during the day
  • You want to embrace a more natural look
  • You are going to be doing activities that might ruin your coverage

Prep the right way with these steps and skin-care products to really make sure you’re feeling great about your no-foundation day. Even though going makeup-free can be liberating, it’s still important to keep your skin looking and feeling happy and healthy—which often takes more than just soap and water.

Skin-care scrub:  get smooth

Cleansing is a must, but to make sure your skin is silky smooth, the best skin care includes a scrub in your morning routine as well. L’Oréal Paris’s Pure-Sugar Scrubs include natural sugars and cocoa butter to slough off dead skin cells while you’re adding an extra dose of hydration. They are one of those skin products that you shouldn’t leave out of your skin-care regimen. Plus, with three options, you can pick one that perfectly pairs with your skin type.

  • If your rough skin desperately needs a makeover, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Coffee Scrub for Rough Skin with finely ground Kona coffee, sweet almond oil and coconut oil will visibly improve your face’s texture and reveal skin that feels re-energized, glowy and baby-soft to the touch.

Skin product must: cleansing milk

This product is perfect for prepping the skin or to use as a second cleanse—just to make sure that your skin is really free of lingering dirt, makeup or grime. L’Oréal Paris Micellar Water Complete Cleanser will gently remove dirt, grime and makeup, prepping it for the next step of your skin-care routine. This cleansing milk contains rose and jasmine extracts to soothe skin while gently removing any build-up on your skin without drying out your complexion. It’s gentle and effective—the perfect prep for your no-foundation day.

Skin treatments: SPF always

Your morning skin-care routine should always include SPF, which is why the best face cream includes sun protection—especially if you tend to forget to apply sunscreen. While L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming SPF 25 Day Lotion keeps you protected from the sun, it also treats signs of aging and adds an extra dose of hydration—basically, it works almost as hard as you do. The best skin-care products are multi-purpose.

Skin glow: grab a highlighting lotion

While opting out of foundation can be liberating, grabbing a highlighter can make a world of difference. The best skin-care regimen includes a moisturizing illuminator like L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion, which will give you a touch of tint to enhance your natural complexion. Think a healthy and bright face without any heavy makeup—it’s so much more than just a face cream.
