Stop Seeing Red

Thursday, January 29, 2009 | Tips & How-Tos, customer Q&A

Are you plagued by inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and hypersensitivity? Check out our Pür Minerals expert beauty advice to this Pür fan to help get the red out!

Q: I am wondering what products you suggest for Rosacea skin. I currently use your 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup and I love it. Are there any other products that would be as gentle? I am also sensitive to scents.

We are thrilled you love our 4-in-1 foundation! All of our makeup is great for those with rosacea. We do not add fragrance to our powders. However, the Universal Marble Powders may not work for you as initially they have an earthy scent. The scent dissipates with use.

As for skin care, our products have mild natural fragrances. With rosacea, it’s important to keep the skin hydrated and protected from the sun. Harsh chemicals will exacerbate the problem as will harsh exfoliating products. A good basic skin care regimen is Revitalizing Facial Wash, Skin Perfecting Serum and Mineral Moisture Complex.

Revitalizing Facial Wash completely removes makeup without stripping skin of its natural oils. It does have a very light citrus scent. Skin Perfecting Serum also has a slight citrus scent, but both products are free of chemical dyes and safe for all skin types. Skin Perfecting Serum has anti-aging benefits, increases hydration and provides gentle natural exfoliation with glucosamine, which is one of the most gentle skin exfoliating ingredients available. Mineral Moisture Complex not only moisturizes but has wonderful anti-aging benefits as well.

These three products are all available in travel sizes in our Let’s Get Started skin care kit. You also may want to consider Day Renewal Complex SPF 20 as a daytime moisturizer to protect your sensitive skin. Like all products at Pür Minerals, all of these products contain high-quality natural ingredients, making them safe for even the most sensitive skin.
