QUESTION: I have pale skin with freckles, (really pale), most foundations and concealer are too orange and I’ve tried everything! Any suggestions on what makeup I should wear?

Nothing worse than that orange look from the wrong shade make up! So I do have some advice. I have been a make-up artist and skin specialist for a while now and matching skin tone is one of the hardest skills you have to acquire. So when I say I know what I’m talking about I say it confidently. Mineral Secrets carries a Mineral Base line of cosmetics. They have the traditional Loose & Pressed Base Minerals, but they carry a Liquid Based Mineral Foundation as well. And that is what you should be using. Advanced technology delivers all the benefits of mineral makeup powders in an easy-to-use hypoallergenic liquid powder. It has a velvety smooth texture and provides medium coverage. It is a breathable make up and will blend right into the skin without looking like you are trying to cover up your freckles. Mineral Secrets Liquid Mineral Foundation is also a natural sun screen (approximately 15 protection) with its Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide ingredients. As far as your skin tone the Liquid Base come in two colors that I am sure will match…Porcelain & Linen. I would suggest getting both colors to custom blend a color that’s perfect for you, but if you have to chose only one Porcelain has a pink undertone and Linen has a yellow undertone and is the lightest shade. I also suggest using Mineral Secrets Loose Porcelain Finishing Powder over the Liquid to provide a matte finish, oil absorption and ability to diminishes pores. If you would like to give your skin that sun-kissed glow without looking orange Mineral Secrets carries a Kenya Safari Bronzer that is perfect for the skin tone you have described. Using the bronzer will also help tone down the look of your freckles if you choose. This combination will be your savior…

QUESTION: What make-up should I be using and what steps should I take to get clear up my skin? I have acne prone skin so using things like liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer only makes my breakouts much worse. I need a skin clearing mineral foundation that could also be used as a concealer. Also How can I get clear healthy skin? I don’t want to wear a lot of make up when I go but I have a few scars too. What is your advice to get clear healthy skin?

My recommendation to you is Mineral Secrets Liquid Mineral Foundation Base. You get the same coverage as a full coverage foundation except it is a Liquid to Powder so you don’t feel like you have on heavy thick caked on makeup! Mineral Secrets Liquid Mineral Foundation is still mineral based so it will allow your skin to breath prevent pore clogging bacteria to build up and make your skin worse. If you still want a little more coverage you can get a Mineral Finishing Powder to put over the liquid foundation. As far as clearing up your skin you have a couple options…a good cleanser is a must (and it has to say it removes makeup or it doesn’t) plain and simple and if your face wash isn’t going to take your makeup off its also not going to clean your face! So SkinRxClinic carries a cleanser call Jojoba Exfoliating Cleanser. It is specifically formulated with Jojoba Beads, AHA’s, Salicylic Acid & Grapefruit Oil to remove make up, dirt & debris and impurities on the skin. Jojoba Beads are natural exfoliants that help buff away the dead cells that are preventing your anti-acne products from penetrating deep enough to clear up your skin. I also recommend trying a toner…SkinRxClinic also carries a Glyco-Lactic Toner that has worked wonders for my clients in the past! Its a mild, non-alcoholic toner. It contains natural, active plant extracts and AHA’s to gently exfoliate, soothe, clarify, and resurface the skin.

QUESTION: How can you get your pores unclogged and fast at home for very little money? I am 36 years old and have quite severe acne scarring on my face, very oily skin with enlarged pores & blackheads on both my middle face & my nose, I have tried several times to remove these in different ways, but it seems that due to my enlarged pores, they just keep coming back. Is there a way that I can permanently rid myself of these black heads & minimize my pores?

I have two solutions for you:  Skin Rx Clinics 15% Glycolic Smoothing Gel & Skin Rx Clinic’s Microdermabrasion Peel. These two products will rid your skin of both the existing acne and the post acne scarring! The 15% Smoothing Gel is an oil free lightweight gel containing 15% Glycolic Acid. It is formulated to improve the texture and condition of skin with large pores, acne and blackheads, fine lines or sun damage. The Glycolic Acid has the ability to penetrate deep into pores killing and dissolving the pore causing bacteria from the inside instead of traditional topical products that are designed to work from the outside. The Microdermabrasion Peel is a formulation of both Glycolic Acid and Corundum Crystals. Together these two ingredients will peel away the dead, dull cells and revel renewed refined & retexturized skin. The Microdermabrasion Peel will better assist with the scarring and large pores. The 15% Smoothing Gel will better assist in minimizing your pores and keeping them from reclogging. It will also help control sebum/oil production. carries Professional Strength products at affordable prices that really provide results…even in those hard to get rid of areas around the nose and cheeks!

QUESTION: What is the best cleanser for normal to oily skin with occasional breakouts. I want something that is awesome and price does not matter as much as quality.

I highly recommend trying Skin Rx Clinic’s Jojoba Exfoliating Cleanser. It is specifically formulated with AHA, Salicylic Acid & Grapefruit Oil. AHA/Glycolic Acid helps reduce dead skin buildup, this will allow for the Salicylic Acid to penetrate deeper and kill the active bacteria that’s under the surface instead of just trying to dry out the blemish from the outside. Jojoba Beads are natural scrub agents that are gentle but effective at keeping pores from getting clogged. Grapefruit Oil balances the drying effects of the AHA’s with its anti-irritant properties. If you are serious about clearing up your skin and quality is what you are looking for…this is defiantly the product for you!

QUESTION: Hi I’m a 45 year old male. For the most part I have good skin, slight wrinkles around the eye area. I do however have bags under my eyes I think it is a hereditary trait. What can I use to keep looking young and to reduce the bags under my eyes?

Puffiness under the eyes is usually caused from fluid retention but can be caused by many things. Lack of sleep, hereditary, sun damage, stress, allergies and even food can cause puffiness…foods high in salt for example. The best way to address under eye bags is with an eye cream specifically designed for under eye puffiness. Eye creams are a good way to get rid of the dark circles, wrinkles, and under eye bags and generally hydrate and moisturize the skin around your eyes. Skin Rx Clinic Eye Bright Anti-Puffiness Gelee improves skins elasticity, firmness and blood circulation and repairs and restores skin that has already been damage.

QUESTION: I have very dry and flaky skin. And since I was a child I have had problems with black heads not on my face but all over my legs. No matter what body scrub or soap I use combined with scrubbing they will not go away. Along with having blackheads I also have red bumps. I have picked them and now I have a few scars. I don’t know what to use or how to get rid of them. Can you please give me some advice on what to do?

To answer your question yes I have advice and yes there is a product that will help. Skin Rx Clinic makes a Microdermabrasion Peel. It is a formulation of Glycolic Acid and Corundum Crystals. The glycolic Acid loosens the dead skin and the Corundum Crystals buff it away. Once the dead skin is gone the Glycolic Acid can penetrate the skin deep down and dissolve the blackheads you have been fighting so hard to get rid of. It will also help to remove the dead flaky skin and those annoying bumps that seem impossible to remove. The Microdermabrasion Peel will also help minimize the appearance of the scars. I don’t want to give you false information and say the scars will completely go away but you can certainly diminish the look so they are not as noticeable. Skin Rx Clinic makes a Skin Lightener that has proven to be effective in lightening hyperpigmention or discolorations on the skin. Together the Skin Lightener and the Microdermabrasion Peel will be your best chance at both removing the dead, flaky skin as well as the blackheads, and lighten the discolorations from the scars. If you are more concerned with the blackheads and flaky skin you will benefit more from the Microdermabrasion Peel. Everything can be found at
