What does your foundation cake look like? If so, the dermatologist said. Azadeh Shirazi — aka @ skinbydrazi’s TikTok has a solution. And, it has nothing to do with your makeup.
This doctor knows his thing
Shirazi is a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon who practices at La Jolla Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center in Southern California. He has been called “the most skilled dermatologist” in La Jolla, and he certainly knows his stuff.
With 114K followers on Instagram, a YouTube channel with nearly 50K subscriptions, and 1.7 million followers on TikTok, Shirazi is quite influential in skin care and aesthetics. And when he posted his latest video, he really spoke to his fans.
How to avoid Cakey Foundation
Shirazi recently asked his TikTok followers if their base is showing Keki. Then, the dermatologist gave a quick step-by-step tutorial that showed how to avoid it.
- Mist the skin with thermal spring water.
- Apply hyaluronic acid to damp skin.
- Apply foundation.
- Remove excess foundation with a tissue-covered beauty blender.
Let’s break it down
To get “no makeup look, makeup look” Shirazi says to start misting your skin with thermal spring water like Avéne Eau Thermale. This cool facial fog spray soothes your skin and helps reduce sensitivity. As an added bonus, it provides antioxidant protection.
The next step in the process is to apply hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin, which Shirazi says is the key to the whole process.
He recommends L’Oreal Paris due to the composition of hyaluronic acid serum. Doc praised this particular product for its features:
- Multi-molecular weight.
- Oil- and fragrance-free.
- Fast absorber.
He explained that if your hyaluronic acid formulation is not correct, it will dry out your skin. Shirazi also mentioned that L’Oreal has the added bonus of combining its hyaluronic acid with panthenol, which supports skin barrier and provides long-lasting hydration.
It’s just that easy
Applying Thermal Spring Water Mist and proper hyaluronic acid before applying your foundation will help you avoid the horrible cake look. These simple steps will make a huge difference and these products will not hurt your budget.
If you are worried about using this method due to skin conditions like rosacea or eczema, then Shirazi should not worry. L’Oreal Paris Hyaluronic Acid Serum is fragrance free and mild, so it will not irritate your skin.
If your skin is very dry, he suggests sealing it with a moisturizer. Amazon’s # 1 seller is Neutrogena Hydro Boost.
