Posts Tagged ‘post procedure’
The use of makeup may be prohibited or restricted after a cosmetic procedure or skin treatment such as laser resurfacing, fractional laser or chemical peels. Pure mineral cosmetics are recommended after cosmetic procedures, it may be worn sooner than traditional makeup and in many cases may be worn immediately after your procedure.
Get Your Post Procedure Cosmetics Before Your Procedure
It is best to be color matched before your procedure, as you may be pink or red after your procedure and not get an accurate match. You may schedule consultation with an aesthetician prior to procedure to be color matched and help you prepare for your procedure. If you purchase a mineral powder outside of your providers clinic, bring it with you to your consultation to verify that is okay to use after your procedure.
Pure Mineral vs Mineral Based
Ensure your mineral makeup is pure mineral and not just a mineral based makeup, which may contain ingredients such as talc or preservatives, that are contraindicated after certain cosmetic procedures. After resurfacing treatments, it is not recommended to use products that contain certain oils, chemical, fillers, preservatives, FD&C dyes or talc. Most cosmetic powder contain about 50% – 80% talc, which will exaggerate peeling or further dry skin after cosmetic procedures. Many aesthetic practices, cary lines like Jane Iredale that are a pure mineral makeup. Jane Iredale products use the highest quality ingredients available, pharmaceutical grade and certified organic. Most products are vegan and gluten free and are all are certified cruelty-free. Other options include, bareMinerals and Young Blood cosmetics.
Always Buy From An Approved Provider!
I can not stress how important it is to purchase your products from an approved provider. It is tempting to purchase products online for the convenience and sometimes discounted price, but this comes at a risk. Manufacturing and selling counterfeit cosmetic and healthcare products is an industry in itself. Often counterfeit products contain ingredients that are harmful, or at best useless. There is also an industry for people who are “dumpster divers” that will pull products that have been discared by vendors and sell them on line. It is not worth compromising your results or risking your health. Counterfeit products are not just found online, they are also found in popular stores and in some cases even salons. The best way to be sure you are getting authentic product is to go to the products official website and use your zip code in the “find a store” or “find a provider” area provided.
I usually recommend a mineral powder rather than liquid minerals after resurfacing treatments, because it is the easiest to apply without much blending and doesn’t require any rubbing or tugging on the skin. Many liquid minerals cosmetics contain ingredients that are not recommended immediately post procedure, so be sure to check the ingrediants.
Hydration Spray: Look for a hydration spray that uses natural ingredients to calm, nourish and hydrate skin. Hydration spray is used to set minerals and help to conceal pores and fine lines . You may spritz your face with hydration spray as often as needed to hydrate skin feels tight or dry. *Hydration spray is strongly recommended for anyone undergoing laser resurfacing treatment.
Lips may become dry after treatment and should be protected from UV rays. Jane Iredale Lip Drink SPF 15 is a color less lip balm that moisturizes and protects lips. It does not contains petroleum-derived products that dry out the lips. Lip Drink offers broad band UVA/ UVB protection, made with an 8% edible zinc oxide and antioxidants green tea extract, Vitamin E and C to protect your lips. * Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Lipcolors and Lipsheres are hydrating, do not contain chemical dyes or preservatives and made with edible zinc oxide to protect your lips.
Eyes: Look for a mascara that is hypo-allergenic, mild and conditioning and does not contain lacquers,shellac or petroleum based products. If you have had the area around your eyes treated, look for pure mineral eye shadows that are highly pigmented and do not contain chemical dyes or preservative that may cause irretation.

Why Jane Iredale
Jane Iredale brand of minerals is highly pigmented and are micro-pulverized. Other mineral make-up brands are milled on average of 3x, compared to Jane Iredale minerals that are micro-pulverized 11x and then sifted thru a silk screen. This allows for more coverage while using less product, as well as eliminating the need to buff or “work in” minerals. Jane Iredale also has a huge selection of color choices, including global shades for ethnic skin.
Pure Mineral Makeup vs. Mineral Based
The growing popularity of mineral makeup, encouraged a second generation of mineral based cosmetics, however, drugstore and discount mineral makeup products usually aren’t “pure” minerals. Simply adding minerals to a cosmetic does not create the same benefit of a true mineral makeup. The top two ingredients should be Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, as they are the basis for a great mineral makeup. Mineral “based” cosmetics may also contain ingredients such as talc or preservatives, that are contraindicated to some cosmetic procedures.
