7 of the Best Foundations for Mature Skin

Updated 09/21/17

It's a known fact that as we age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness. Fine lines and dark spots start to appear, and sometimes no matter how hard we try, concealer just doesn't cut it.

We are in no way trying to give older women foundations that will make them look like they're in their 20s or trying to promote the idea that there's something wrong with getting older. Instead, we want to ID the best foundations for mature skin that can double as skincare.

In other words, we've roundup up foundations that not only provide natural-looking coverage but also contain skincare ingredients to help firm up the skin, hide any discoloration, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. After all, who doesn't love a good two-in-one product?
