Many women don’t know if they have sensitive skin, majority who do, don’t know how to improve or prevent their skin condition. Sensitive skin is a skin that easily breaks out, stings, redness, irritation, flushing and many other skin problems. This can be because of skin care product, make-up product or even weather.
For people who have sensitive skin, finding suitable make-up product is not easy. A few months ago I had about blusher from a well-known brand. I don’t usually put trial item on my face, due to all the bacteria that can be found on trial make-up items. But as it was a very famous and trusted by many brand, I decided to give it a try. After wearing it for a couple of hours, my cheeks started burning and I had terrible break-outs for weeks, after weeks of using calamine lotion the redness reduced. For people similar with me, it’s hard to find skin products that improve more than damage, make-up is even more tricky to find, especially foundation. But I’ve discovered that mineral based make-up items really improves skin but also is not harmful for most people with sensitive skin.

Cons of Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Powder Foundation
Kabuki brush that comes with the powder is hard and harsh on skin. I suggest getting another softer brush. Also, you will need a make-up remover to remove foundation completely. After removing the foundation completely, notice your skin looking fresh with a healthy glow.
Also if you have sensitive skin, other than using mineral based make-up product, another good way to reduce skin problems is to clean brushes. I usually pump or soap up my palm with hand wash or skin cleaner and wet the brush and brush my palm that contains soap softly. You can see the excess make-up color the soap, rinse with water running on your palm and brushing, that way not too much water goes inside the brush. After squeezing excess water out, I put my brushes in a glass near a window with sunshine. Downwards! If you put your brush heads up with the hair going upwards, the water will get into the brush and wet the glue and give your brush hair loss problems. 😛
These products and methods does not only improve sensitive skin but it also works nicely for others.
