4in1_JHancock2_Print-_email Applying mineral foundation in the morning should be more than just a routine; it should be a ritual—a quiet, special time to pamper your skin and indulge in daily beautification.

First, begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin, removing any dead cells that may have accumulated while sleeping. After gently towel drying, apply a moisturizing agent, like Pür Minerals Day Complex SPF 20, to keep your skin looking supple and healthy.

Once you’ve properly prepped your face, it’s time to apply your mineral foundation. We recommend Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation with SPF 15. Free of irritating chemical dyes, alcohol, fragrance, talc and preservatives, this good-for-your-skin formula is your mineral foundation, concealer, finishing powder and sun protector all in one.

As you apply the mineral foundation to your face, sweep the brush in downward strokes over your skin to achieve a smooth even blend. You can also use the Utility Makeup Brush to apply foundation to small and hard-to-reach areas.

Don’t forget to lightly dust your neck and décolleté to give your skin a smooth and even tone.
