2. Read the label.
Beware of falling into the trap of thinking terms such as oil free, non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging) and dermatologist tested means a product is right for you. Maximizing the benefits of using makeup is all about reading labels. However, there are certain minerals that are good for your skin. For example, titanium and zinc both have natural anti-irritant properties, which combat inflammation, and a natural SPF 15. Some ingredients you might want to avoid are sodium chloride (salt), soybean oil, and methanol. But, knowing what you should avoid really depends on your skin type, so (once again) it’s important that you consult a dermatologist.
