Healthy Makeup? Heck, Yea!

MAKEUP OVERLOAD CAN can clog pores and cause breakouts when you least need them, but is there such a thing as healthy makeup? A subtle combination of the right moisturizer, foundation, and protective lip color adds to the bright-eyed, bushy-tailed glow that other humans gravitate to, without killing your skin cells.

Healthy makeup-wise, I found blogger Julia’s daily makeup routine to be noteworthy. She incorporated an SPF lip product with a sulfate free foundation to minimize the free radicals that can attack skin cells.  Read about her daily makeup routine here.

Why do I love her choice of the  bareMinerals original foundation? Not only does it have SPF, which protects your face from harmful rays (reminder, this is just as important in the cool fall and winter months, as it is in the scorching summer sun), but it’s also sulfate, paraben, and phthalate free (as in free of chemicals that damage cells).

Even though chemicals found in makeup (like parabens) were deemed safe at low levels per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization, in the past there were concerns that these chemicals may mimic estrogen in the body and play a role in certain cancers. Like they were actually found to be present in breast tissue tumors.

Julia’s Fresh Lip Sugar Treatment also fights harmful UV rays. These lip colors keep that pucker shiny for up to 6 hours with natural ingredients, one of which is (surprise, surprise) sugar. The sugar incorporated into this healthy makeup product is a natural humectant (aka additive to prevent moisture loss). Meadowfoam and black currant seed oils are natural oils that help maintain hydration. Check this product out in Hamptons magazine.

    I use Fresh sugar lip treatment. It really works well on my lips. It’s a bit expensive though.

    A few years ago it was hard to purchase burt’s bees products in town but nowadays there are malls that have their shops so it was easier for me to get them. It was first introduced by my cousin who was highly allergic to most cosmetic products. Glad I read the labels of cosmetic products, parabens s a big no no for me.

    It is interesting to see many cosmetic products nowadays are beginning to be “healthy”, meaning discarding the ingredients that could be harmful to the body. As I work in a laboratory that tests prohibited chemicals in make ups, I am well aware which brands are good.

    I hate traditional cakey make-up. So any healthier alternative that will really let the skin breathe and feel and look more natural, then I’m all down for. Thank you for your tips, will share your blog in my Facebook beauty groups!
