Totties Summer Skin Tips
Ok, for all you gals that are like me... who have skin that gets freckles and pigments at the thought of the sun... I have found a solution FINALLY!!!
For the last two months I have been using Simply Brilliant Brightening Serum by Cosmedix which minimises the apperance of pigmentation while preventing the production of new pigment. I mix this with my Cosmedix Vitamin C powder which dramtically brightens my skin while offering protection from harmful UV rays. I then use my Sun Block on top. I'm using Skin Medica Environmental Defence sunscreen as it is very light and is a great base for my make-up.
But the next part I found really interesting; with skin like mine I should wear foundation even if I'm using block. I thought block was enough on it's own but it ain't!
And just for the record, I use 100% mineral make-up.Why use Mineral Make-up? Pure mineral make-up binds to oils not water. This gives the makeup a natural water resistance and is much better for your skin than conventional cosmetics. Conventional makeup contains chemicals, oils and other additives that can either irritate sensitive skin or cause unnecessary breakouts.
Makeup is actually good for people to wear, as long as they are not wearing products harmful to their skin.
Go forth and have even looking skin :)
