3 Best Picks For Non Toxic Foundation

One of the best things you can do for your skin AND your hormones is make sure you are using a quality non toxic foundation. Why? Because we absorb 60-80% of what we put on our skin in less than a minute. This means it’s important to be aware of what is in the products you are using. Not only to help avoid toxins but also for your hormones.

Conventional foundation and other beauty/skincare products often contain a specific type of toxin called xenoestrogens. These mimic estrogen in the body and can actually alter how our hormones function and create imbalances in the body. 

If you’re dealing with PMS symptoms, heavy periods, bloating, weight gain (especially around hips and thighs), difficulty losing weight, mood swings, headaches/migraines around your period, all of that fun stuff, then you want to consider looking at what is in your personal care products. 

 

Safer Beauty Products

Luckily, the world is slowly starting to learn more about how what we eat and put on our skin impacts our health and hormones. This has led to some amazing companies being built with the mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. I am sharing 3 of my favorite foundations (well one is a tinted moisturizer) in this post.

I personally have acne prone skin and have had a hard time finding a foundation (conventional or non toxic) that doesn’t cause break outs or irritate my skin, but I did it! I found 3 that I love and use on a regular basis and I’m so excited to share. 

 

Top 3 Non Toxic Foundations

Tint Skin Foundation 

This is my go-to foundation and was one of the products that showed me you can find safer products that still work. For someone with acne prone skin that is used to getting irritated by most foundations I have been so pleased with this one. This is full coverage but it still feels light on your skin. I use this flat complexion brush to put it on so the coverage stays strong and you use less. I also use this brush to put on my face masks. 

Highlight: contains sodium hyaluronate, which helps to keep just the right amount of moisture in your skin. This particular foundation is helpful for reducing acne (dry skin makes you much more susceptible to bacteria) and signs of aging.

Foundation Twist Brush

This is a powder foundation that I am obsessed with! I actually use this on top of the tint skin and/or the dew skin below. You can get it without the twist brush, but that’s my favorite part. You can see how the brush works in the video below, but just to give you an idea–it has the foundation that twists in at the bottom and then you shake it and it comes out through the brush. So cool! 

Highlight: Not only does this foundation have great ingredients, but it also has SPF 30 AND beneficial ingredients for your skin like milk thistle, vitamin E, and rhodiola. 

CON: The only thing I don’t love is one ingredient (phenoxyethanol) scores a 4 on EWG.org relating to skin irritation and toxicity. I try to keep all of the ingredients and products 3 or less. 

For the color, I use 200. 

 

Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage

So this isn’t technically a foundation–it’s more of a tinted moisturizer, but I wanted to include it because everyone is so different. This is very light coverage but if you prefer that then this is for you. I wear this the most in the summer. 

Highlight: Contains SPF 20 and is really moisturizing for the skin. I also love the container it’s in. Super easy to travel with! 

I use No. 3 for color. 

 

How I Use Them

Something To Consider

When purchasing non toxic and/or safer skincare and beauty products you want to make sure that the companies you are buying from test their products. This is a huge reason I prioritize companies like Beautycounter. They don’t just batch test either–they test every single batch of every single products for harmful chemicals, toxins, bacteria, and heavy metals.
