The very first step to working with makeup for acne prone skin is to make sure your previous makeup application removal is thorough. While keeping up with a good cleanser and moisturizer that works well with your skin is necessary before any application of makeup, the makeup brushes you use and the care you take of your products may be equally important.
With naturally sensitive skin, finding the right mineral makeup can be extremely difficult. After disappointing test runs with many sensitive skin beauty products claiming “natural” or “herbal” properties to prevent reactions and keep you feeling fresh and healthy, we can understand the desire to give up the search. Here at Alima Pure, we deeply believe in the idea that less is more. Products should be simple, clean, pure and feel good, no matter how often you use them. This is why our mineral makeup works well with sensitive skin—the fewer ingredients put into the product, the less likely it is to irritate the skin.
A little while ago, we let you in on what cleansers were working well for the Alima Pure staff. Now we’re ready to share our favorite moisturizing products with you. Again, please keep in mind that what works for us may or may not work for you, and we haven’t tried everything on the market, by any means! We just have a few things we really like, and if your skin type is similar, you might like them as well.
We receive a lot of email asking us to recommend skin care that works well with Alima Pure mineral makeup. Usually, we aren't to specific with these because we haven’t made a point of trying lots of different things. Each of us tend to find something that works for our skin and to stick with it for a while. But we like to be as helpful as possible, so we recently asked around the office to see what everyone is currently liking. Keep in mind that your results may not be the same as someone else's, so these are just suggestions of things you might consider.
It's great to be #1 at something, even if that ranking comes with a price. Dailyglow.com recently published a ranking of 55 U.S. cities, analyzed for how good or bad they are for your skin. We're happy to report that Portland, Oregon came out on top!
