Professional quality mineral makeup is a wonderful way to help clients look years younger.
Mineral makeup is the preferred cosmetic recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and skin care professionals. Doctors even use these minerals to camouflage surgical procedures.
As an Esthetician I like to offer my clients, cosmetics after performing procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials. There are virtually no contraindications for wearing this type of makeup.
Minerals are well suited for aging clients. The minerals give a healthy glow and cover fine lines and wrinkles as they refract light away from the skin. Using makeup with daily sun protection prevents photo aging and keeps the skin looking its best, as mineral makeup naturally refracts the sun. The powders are not drying because they do not contain talc.
Products containing talc are not beneficial for aging skin as talc gets into lines and accentuates wrinkles because of the matte finish. Mineral makeup actually helps to keep moisture trapped under the breathable layer of the skin. It is important to properly moisturize aging skin and to “let the moisturizer set so that the skin is smooth and prepared for the makeup”.
Mineral makeup is light, airy and an ideal way to look rejuvenated and fresh throughout the day without worrying about re-touching.
Who needs a time machine when we as Estheticians have the anti-aging skin care services to offer as well as “common sense” skin care basics combined with state-of-the-art technologies?
