Skin care has always been a very large part of my practice. I believe in a whole body approach to beauty, and having healthy and clear skin is important for feeling good about yourself and your face. I see so many women today layering on make-up to cover up acne and uneven skin tone without addressing the real issue of their skin. The skin is a very interesting organ and a reflection of your general health. Although some people are genetically predisposed to skin problems and irritations, the majority of us create problems by not caring for our skin properly. Exercise, diet, and sun protection are extremely important for healthy skin, as is not smoking. But what about the products you use daily on your skin? What exactly is in the make-up you apply every morning?
The skin is an organ and it likes to breathe. By layering synthetic make-up directly onto the skin, we are preventing it from breathing. In turn, it clogs your pores and causes break-outs.
Over the years I have tested a number of different make-up brands and I have never been completely satisfied until I came across Jane Iredale. This company sought out to create a make-up line that would actually be beneficial to the skin. All of the cosmetics are made out of natural minerals that do not clog pores or aggravate the skin and are virtually allergy free. The make-up is made out of minerals and pigments that are micro-pulverized to form microscopic flat particles. When you apply to the skin, these particles overlap each other and create a filter, enabling the skin to breathe naturally. The products also offer up to SPF 30 sun protection and also protect from air-borne pollutants. I have been very satisfied with the quality and performance of the Jane Iredale line and highly recommend it for anyone.
We are currently offering 20% off the entire Jane Iredale Make-Up Line during the month of May. Be sure to try the new Jane Iredale Sunless Tanner – a great way to get some color without sacrificing the health of your skin!
