Taking good care of your skin involves more than just your monthly in-spa treatments -it has a lot to do with the skincare and makeup products you invest in and use daily. You may be using the best skincare products, but are you using the best makeup products for your skin?
As makeup sits on your face all day and penetrates its surface, you aren’t helping your skin by using chemical filled makeup. That’s why dermatologists have always endorsed using mineral, pharmaceutical-grade makeup. Mineral makeup is made up of finely pulverised rock and sits on the skin but does not penetrate into your pores like regular makeup would.
As mineral makeup is more pure, it will not cause any skin irritation, sensitivity, or allergic reactions and is suitable for all skin types. Mineral makeup has the added benefits of protecting skin with issues such as acne, rosacea, melasma, etc. and is recommended for those with any sensitive skin concerns.
As acne-prone skin tends to produce more oil and therefore clogs your pores, it is important to use mineral makeup products that will not further penetrate into the pores. Mineral makeup products are great for those with rosacea as they will do the job of covering your redness without irritating the skin, as these products are chemical free. Furthermore, for those with a condition such as melasma, mineral makeup with SPF protection are staple products.
Ensuring your mineral makeup products have sun protection is an important factor in your skin care. Sun protection is essential to prevent ageing skin, as sun damage is a significant cause of wrinkles due to the loss of collagen from the sun.
A brand like Colorescience specializes in creating mineral makeup that is chemical-free, but also adds in the extra benefit of sun protection through micronized zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Colorescience creates a variety of makeup and skincare products, such as mineral powders, skin correctors, primers, and serums, all with SPF protection.
Some of the most popular Colorescience products GLOW Beauty Bar carries are the Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen, All Calm Redness Corrector, and the Even Up 3 in 1 Skin Protector, all perfect for those struggling with acne, rosacea, melasma, or any other similar skin condition. If you’re curious about the Colorescience line, we would be happy to answer any questions and make the best product recommendations for your skin type or skin concerns!
Glo Skin Beauty is another great makeup line, with award-winning mineral makeup -available for purchase at GLOW Beauty Bar. Every product in the mineral makeup line is talc-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free. Glo makeup is manufactured with ultra-fine minerals in a triple-milled process to create formulations that enhance and protect even the most sensitive skin.
