Killing Bacteria In Mineral Make-Up

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys!! I had an idea yesterday -- I just bought a Sirius Aurora Light Therapy System with blue light (and green and red). It's been working realllllly well to kill bacteria on my skin and heal deep blemishes extremely fast... So I had a thought... I know that every time you do make-up you put p. acnes and staph and all sorts of organisms back into your powder make-up... It always bothered me that there was nothing I could really do about it.. But yesterday I decided to "treat" my open make-up pods with blue light :-D (my one concern was that it would change the pigments in some way, but that didn't happen, make up still looks and feels the same -- I use Korres Mineral Wild Rose Foundation and Bare Minerals Sunkissed(?) powder and in the summer I use Summer Bisque concealer).

I used a fair amount of make up yesterday and this morning woke up with NO new blemishes, fewer and completely healed ones, too! this might be solely because of the light therapy on my skin, but I just thought I'd share.

<3 Be well! Any questions, or feedback, I'm all ears.

you could also set it in the sun, if you don't have such a light. UVA kills. They use UVA cabinets for some tools and equipment in hospitals and labs.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
