9 Clean Foundations That Will Save Your Skin
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been slathering foundation onto your skin for almost as long as you can remember. It’d be great to rid our beauty routines of this step altogether, but until we feel comfortable in doing so, we’d like to replace the not-so-clean foundations we’ve been using with products we can feel good about exposing ourselves to on a daily basis. To that end, we’ve made a list of 9 foundations that take a holistic approach to beautifying, using as many natural ingredients as possible to create a glow that’s actually as healthy as it looks.
