Highlighters come in a variety of forms. Powder form is the easiest to use and tends to give the most natural look. Highlighters let you reflect light, and if applied correctly can highlight and contour your natural facial features. The key to highlighter is applying with a light hand. You want to avoid harsh or obvious lines. With a chiseled blush brush lightly apply highlighter to the area just above your cheekbones. This will make them appear more prominent and enhance them.

The Skin Recovery Creme is a very lightweight crème designed to be used after your chemical peel treatments and only for about 3 days after! It doesn’t have any anti-aging properties; it is more of a post peel “healing” crème so this will take the place of your moisturizer AM & PM for the 3 days following a peel treatment. You will use it over your Willowherb Soothing Serum, you are correct---the Willowherb Soothing Serum on its own will not provide enough hydration.
Mineral Make up is essentially pure crushed minerals. Two of the minerals are natural sunscreens so the makeup has a built in sun protection. Unlike traditional powders you “buff” the minerals on. The warmth of your skin causes the minerals to slightly liquefy and form a natural finish on your face. When the minerals are applied properly (which can take some practice) your skin has a glowing, natural look. Mineral Makeup generally refers to the Loose Mineral foundation, but there are many other mineral makeup products - finishing powder, face color, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, etc. The minerals generally come in a loose powered form but it also comes in pressed or liquid.
There are several factors to address when dealing with acne and blackheads. First you want to make sure you are using the proper cleanser. This makes all the difference. By keeping the skin exfoliated and killing pore clogging bacteria you can prevent the breakouts from occurring in the first place. Skin Rx Clinic carries a Jojoba Exfoliating Cleanser. It is give a deep down clean feeling and contains Jojoba beads to naturally buff away dead skin cell build up. That in combination with Salicylic Acid allows the skin to breath even under makeup. You should also use a good moisturizer. This will assure your skin stays properly hydrated throughout the day and as a result will not over produce oil and clog the pores leaving room for bacteria to grow. Skin Rx Clinic also carries a Glycolic Face Lotion that is lightweight and beneficial in helping prevent and clear up acne prone skin. Now that we have touch base on what to do before you apply your make up to keep your skin clear, let’s talk about the right kind of makeup. I am sure you have noticed the Mineral Makeup crazy, and rightly so…it is fantastic! You also have options; Mineral Secrets carries a fantastic line of mineral makeup products, Pressed Mineral Base, Loose Mineral Base and Liquid Mineral base. These are all oil free products made of mineral pigments and will not clog your pores or cause acne causing bacteria to grow. My personal preference is the Liquid Mineral Base. I love its texture and it provides medium coverage without feeling heavy and wearing off mid day! But if you prefer a powder base the Loose Mineral Base is light weight and provides minimal coverage, the pressed is also lightweight as it is still a powder but it provide better coverage. One you decide on what type of Mineral Makeup you prefer the rest is easy…just apply and feel how natural your skin feels and looks!
