Often overlooked as a type of skincare, skin care cosmetics are big business and there's only a handful of women that do not use on a daily basis. The reason for this is relatively simple; cosmetics for the skin help women look and feel more beautiful. Women use skin care cosmetic products such as foundations, mascara, blush or rouge, as well as lipsticks and concealer simply to make their skin look youthful and glowing and to add a sparkle to their appearance.

Skin care cosmetics are increasingly more natural based as demand for organic and chemical-free rises. There are times when skin may not 'shine' or glow and this is when skin care cosmetics come into their own.

Cosmetics for the skin allow women to hide signs of aging as well. With certain cosmetics for the skin you can conceal wrinkles, fine lines, crows feet and more. If your skin is unhealthy to begin with then this process of hiding the imperfections is harder, which is why it is so important to start with healthy skin. This can be done by using moisturizing cosmetics on the skin as well as cosmetics that have SPF protection from the sun, as many of them do now.
