How to prevent powder from settling into lines?

So, how do you keep mineral foundations or other powders from settling into any lines you may have on your face?
you can't.

moisturize well to start and use super-refined powders to minimize the look of them settling into lines.

I only really see the lines when I wear mineral makeup/powder.
getting wrinkles is a fact of life.

don't squint, use sunscreen and moisturizers with AHAs.

microdermabrasion certainly helps, but it's an expensive option.

What product are you using that settles into your fine lines?

If you use a powder foundation, there's not much you can do. That's why they're marketed and sold to young people who don't have wrinkles yet.

If you use a mineral foundation, buffing longer should help. I use bare minerals and I never have a problem with it settling into fine lines as long as I moisturize and buff. That said, I use regular cream concealer around my eyes because BM didn't look right. I buff a little BM over top.
When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

I think the issue is that I recently stopped using moisturizer. I decided I was through with Oil of Olay, and I still haven't replaced it. I'll try to pick something up tomorrow.

Now, if only I could find a cheap moisturizer that felt as nice as whatever they put on me at the Origins counter yesterday. . . .
Anicetta, I like the Dove moisturizing lotion with SPF 15. It isn't heavy like Nivea, but seems to do the job. Also, I noticed that when I use a loose powder it seems to settle in my lines and pores. So I only use a pressed powder now.

i have major cracks across my forehead that are making me consider Botox!

I want to slow its progression as well as the emergence of new lines as much as possible.


I'm on the hunt for a new moisturizer now. Do you have any recs?


Maudie, I'll look into that Dove. Thanks for the suggestion.
I use mineral makeup as well, and cannot use the pressed powder because my skin is oily and it needs very matte makeup. I also have rosacea and this makes my skin sensitive, and cannot tolerate anything besides mineral makeup (barely tolerates that).

That being said, how long do you wait after moisturizing before using a powder/mineral makeup? I would be using a drop of Jojoba oil mixed with water, and I know I can't put the powder on my face if it is damp. Any tips? Thanks in advance!

I'm in love with neotrogena's healthy skin enhancer. I used to use an oil free foundation and mineral makeup loose powder but it never looked quite right adn didn't seem to benefit my skin. I had heard some really good things about this product and I've been using it for 3 months now. I don't need to use powder. It is oil free but it also has a retinol agent in it that seems to keep my skin looking great adn not overly oily. It also has SPF 20 in it and so you're really getting a lot of bang for your bucks. It costs about 10 bucks a bottle.
