Mineral make up has many benefits, they are kinder for the skin and the ingredients are mostly organic, perfect for all skin types, they can be applied directly after skin treatments such as facials and waxing. The minerals allow the skin to breathe and are non -comedogenic which means they will not block the pores.
Skin needs to look and feel its best before applying any form of make-up. It is essential to moisturise every morning before your makeup application, so your minerals have a hydrated surface to lie on.We recommend double cleansing your face, the first cleanse will remove make up and a second cleanse will clean the skin, followed by a serum and moisturiser . As we are coming out of winter and the sun is about to shine brighter and burst into spring it is highly advisable to put a SPF on your skin, especially the face as this is constantly exposed to the elements. We do suggest using a sunscreen all year round. Environ have the RAD antioxidant sunscreen SPF15 which I use over my moisturiser and gives a silky feel to the skin unlike previous standalone sunscreens I have used in the past.
Before applying make-up it is good to use a primer, this does two things, it minimises pores and gives your makeup a longer lasting finish. Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer is anti-ageing and has a slight tint to it which works well as a concealer with the added bonus of a SPF30. Also in the Dermalogica range is the Hydrablur – does exactly what it says on the tin. This primer will blur out fine lines and pores, hydrating and brightening the skin to give a natural flawless finish.
The two minerals commonly found in mineral make-up are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which can protect against the suns damaging UVA and UVB rays.
