First of all, it might be smart to go over with a lighter liquid base. Then, cover up with your normal color powder. Sometimes, adding blush draws attention away from the uneven skin tones also. Hope I helped! One thing most women don't realize is they have a layer of dead cells on their face just like the rest of their body. They must get this layer of dead cells off or expensive to cheap creams will not do the job and just lay on the top surface of the skin. Glycolic acid in creams (Neo Strata) puts out a good one with 8% Glycolic acid .. (you don't need a higher percentage) and put that on either during the day or night. This takes off the dead skin cells and thus, you can buy a more inexpensive cream to keep moisture in your skin. I use Glycolic acid creams (Neo Strata) and my skin is flawless. I've done it for a long time and I'm 65 and have many compliments on my skin with few wrinkles. I use "Dove" skin creams for moisture and I have often just put on a bit of blush, lipstick, mascara and that's it. Of course eating well, exercising and drinking those 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water are good for your skin as well. The skin is the largest breathing organ on your body!
