4 Foundations That Seniors Are Currently Loving

Regardless of age, all women want their skin to look good and feel soft to the touch. However, mature skin requires a different foundation than younger skin because of the changes in elasticity, dryness, and degree of brightness. Mature skin also tends to develop more wrinkles and spots.
