Why I switched my makeup

Posted on August 31, 2018 by Dr. Blume in Blog

I’ve been getting facials, botox, photofacials and injections at Blume Skin & Body for many years. I also use many of the amazing skin care products they sell – NeoCutis, EltaMD and Epionce. Basically, I spend a lot of time and money to make sure my skin looks good. If you’re reading this blog, I’m sure healthy skin is important to you too!

I used to get frustrated because after treatments I would start wearing my super heavy makeup – foundation, concealer, powder, bronzer, and blush. My face was always photo/instagram ready, but at the end of the day my skin  looked icky! My pores looked bigger, my skin was dull and dehydrated and I could feel the makeup seeping into my pores and clogging them. Why was I spending so much money and time on procedures and healthy skin care products, but not on “healthy” makeup?

I discovered two amazing brands at Blume Skin & Body that have changed my life – Oxygenetix foundation and Colorescience under eye cream and SPF brush!

Oxygenetix is lightweight and controls my acne! It heals my skin and most importantly it’s breathable. It covers and treats a wide variety of skin problems: skin injuries, wounds, rashes, cracked, dry skin, acne scars, rosacea and other skin conditions. My skin feels glowing when I use this foundation. Plus, it’s buildable to hide dark spots and scars.

For my eyes I use Colorescience Total Eye 3-in-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35.  It  improve the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles while protecting the eye area against photoaging. It also has 100% SPF 35 mineral sunscreen.

Also, from Colorescience, I use the Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-on Shield SPF. I brush it on in the morning and throughout the day to give my skin sun protection. This is a great product because it won’t mess up your makeup like traditional sunscreen. You can just pop the brush in your purse and use it anytime during the day. Super easy and simple!

After using these products I noticed a complete change in my skin. It makes sense – I’m using healthy dermatologist approved makeup to benefit my skin not just to cover.
