In Topic: Makeup suggestions for over 40, not mineral

30 March 2011 - 09:35 AM

I'm nearing 40 and still use mineral make-up. To avoid make-up sliding and settling in fine lines & wrinkles, be sure to use one with little to no mica. I also avoid applying make-up to fine lines & wrinkles and apply it just outside those areas. If they need to be touched up due to a blemish or redness I spot apply with the tip of a fine concealer brush.
You can also take your favorite mineral powder and mix it with your favorite moisturizer, jojoba oil, or aloe vera gel if you want to avoid chemicals, preservatives, mica, etc normally found in liquid make-up.

Especially with mineral make-up, make sure you exfoliate your skin, then moisturize before applying make-up.
I use jojoba oil. I put a drop on my finger tips then gently pat round my face. I let it sit for a minute, then apply my minerals.

SLS is a very harsh detergent that can dry out or irritate your skin.
I have used Dr B's soap (although I prefer to cleanse my face with Kiss My Face Olive Oil bar soap) and the organic oils gently remove impurities without stripping your skin of necesary oils. It has never made me break out.
FYI...you must dilute Dr. B's liquid soap-make sure to read the instructions, or get his bar soap.
