Will mineral foundation make my red marks heal slower?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm currently using some Everyday Minerals foundation, silk dust and some finishing powder. Just to cover my red marks.

I would just like to know if mineral foundation/powder will make my red marks heal at a slower rate?

I'm using ACV as toner, and emu oil together with my moist. So i'm doing what I can to make 'em heal.

Any help is appreciated. :)

EDIT:

Im usually wearing my foundation about 4-6 hours (is that too long?). Not any longer normally. 3 PM-4 PM to 9 PM where I cleanse.

I wear mine probably 8-10 hours a day..and I haven't noticed that my red marks heal any slower than before I used EM...I can't imagine why it would make them heal slower

Well, maybe it was just a stupid question :-)

I've been home for a week, and I didnt wear any foundation. So it just occured to me that wearing foundation might slow down your healing process. But I might be wrong. I will continue wearing EM then, cus' I love it man ;)

And then put more effort in my redmarks so I can get rid of them once and for all. :)

I think so.

Because mineral powder is too drying. Without enough hydratation, the skin heals slowly.

as long as you moisturize..it shouldn't be too drying. If it does dry you out, you just need to moisturize more before applying the MMU
