Healthy Makeup For A Healthy Complexion

Healthy Makeup For A Healthy Complexion

When you’re doing a bit of a “skintox”, it’s best not to wear makeup and let your skin breathe naturally without wearing layers of cosmetics. However, we know this isn’t always possible, especially if you have an important event coming up. In this case, opt for healthy makeup that will nourish your complexion, not block your pores and leave your skin looking flawless.

Healthy Makeup Tips To Look Out For

When shopping for healthy makeup, there are a few things you can look out for that will help you find the product for you.

  • Non-Comedogenic: This means that the product won’t block your pores and cause breakouts. Instead, it will let your skin breathe so it feels comfortable all day.
  • Stay Away From Parabens: Parabens can disrupt your natural hormonal balance, meaning if you suffer from the occasional hormonal breakout, you won’t want to add in an extra chemical that could further disrupt your complexion.
  • Fragrance-Free: When a product contains natural fragrance from essential oils, it can help to nourish your skin (always do a spot test before), but synthetic fragrance can leave your skin irritated and sore. Just think, you wouldn’t put perfume on your face, so why choose products that contain the same ingredients?

A Full Face Of Healthy Makeup

We have put together an easy guide so you can do a full face of makeup without compromising on the health of your skin. Make sure you always remove it before you go to bed however to make sure your skin stays as gorgeous as it can be!

    If you are looking for a little more coverage, then the newest addition to the bareMinerals makeup line, the BAREPRO Foundation will become your new beauty best friend. It is formulated with a base of 90% vitamins and minerals, is hypoallergenic, non comedogenic, and won’t cause breakouts or irritate acne. As the finish is a little more on the matte side, it’s also great for oily skin types.

    It works well with most of the bareMinerals brushes, but we love its new BAREPRO matching Brush, which buffs the product into the skin beautifully.
