How Tinted Moisturizers Can Benefit Your Skin Type


Unlike traditional colored cosmetics with no skincare benefits, choosing tinted moisturizers that suit your skin type makes sense as they deliver more than just skin tone correcting results. Therefore, it is recommended that you examine the ingredient list carefully to spot ingredients that may help to address your unique skin concerns.

Pro Tip: Match tinted moisturizers to your skin type.

Normal Skin

This well-balanced skin type has neither an overproduction of sebum nor an underproduction. It typically does not have any persistent skin issues such as acne or elevated sensitivity. Hydration will be the key to maintaining a normal skin type’s natural elasticity and overall health. When choosing a tinted moisturizer, look out for moisturizing ingredients and humectants that will give your skin a supple look. Glycerin is our ingredient of choice as a 2016 study has shown that it is the most effective humectant compared to others such as Hyaluronic Acid, Lactic Acid and Glycolic Acid.

Dry Skin

The dry skin type is defined as one that does not produce enough natural oils and as a result appears dry and flaky. 

Face makeup that tends to be drying, such as a mattifying full coverage foundation, can adhere to dry patches on the skin causing an uneven finish. 

tinted moisturizer is a skin-friendly substitute. Our Organic Tinted Moisturizer contains Sunflower Seed Oil that boosts your skin’s natural barrier thereby helping it retain moisture. 

This vegan makeup is also developed with Shea Butter and Avocado Oil which hydrates and brightens up dull dry skin.

Oily Skin

Characterized by the overproduction of sebum due to hyperactive oil glands, people with oily skin have greasy and shiny skin during mid-day. 

Tinted moisturizers formulated with oil-control ingredients such as Jojoba Seed Oil help to curb excess sebum. 

A side effect of having an oily skin type is the increased risk of acne breakouts. 

Tinted moisturizers that are non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic will not trigger recurrences.

Combination Skin

Displaying the traits of more than one skin type, people with combination skin generally have an oily t-zone but dry cheeks. 

Tinted moisturizers that deliver intense hydration coupled with oil-control properties will be the best to combat this skin type’s unique skin woes. 

There will be no need to apply a different skincare product on the dry and oily parts of your face as such a moisturizer delivers a broad spectrum of efficacies.

Mature Skin

People with a mature skin type exhibit at least one sign of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles or dark spots. 

Tinted moisturizers formulated with age defying Vitamin E help to tackle free radicals and prevent early signs of aging. 

Additionally, Vitamin E promotes blood circulation and improves skin firmness.

Hydrating ingredients help to plump up fine lines and prevent powder products, such as eyeshadow, from settling into fine lines.

Sensitive Skin

The sensitive skin type reacts more readily to allergens and irritating chemicals. 

Tinted moisturizers developed with calming ingredients, such as Chamomile Hydrosol, soothes unexpected flare-ups and brings inflamed complexion back to its balanced state. 

Organic natural plant extracts, like Avocado Oil, calms itchy skin and shields easily irritated complexion from damaging UV rays.

When it comes to skincare-infused makeup, it makes perfect sense to take your skin type into consideration as well when finding the right fit. Luxury by Sofia’s Organic Tinted Moisturizer contains all the skin-loving ingredients mentioned in this article and will work wonders on all skin types.
