They "do not flow" does not melt, does not clog pores, but on the contrary perform many protective functions - cherish our skin from the sun, dust, dry air, etc. And of course an excellent job with its intended purpose - to improve the appearance, emphasize the beauty and conceal flaws ...
Foundations of our days have gone very far ahead of the first-born of the family, cream Pan-Cake, created by Max Factor in 1936, and was originally intended for makeup actors. And if the first tone means really is not very suited for use in sultry summer, that is to say about modern high-quality waterproof light creams, BB creams, SS-cream, well, not.

Choose a few, but it is important that this tool was an easy texture, UV-filters and a sufficient degree of sun protection (SPF), free of oil (
) Was resistant.
Well proven creams based on silicone: Silicone is well smooths the surface of the skin, making it supple and tender at the same time silicones are environmentally friendly and fairly harmless substances.
