Wow - Mineral Make-up

We wrote an article on mineral make-up several months ago and at the time I had not tried mineral make-up as I was a long user of liquid foundation.

Well I finally decided to give it a try and the verdict is in...I love it!!
I now use mineral foundation (powder) and apply it with a Kabuki brush (big fat brush). With a few strokes my skin is transformed. It becomes virtually flawless!

Take a look at Powder Your Nose.

In the news - Lotions, powders may pose risks to infants

The Globe and Mail reported on February 4 that new research funded in part by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, found phthalates, a hormone-disrupting chemical used in many plastics and personal care products, in every one of a group of 163 babies they tested.

This ingredient is used in fragrance compounds in everyday products like lotions, shampoos, powders. It is also a plastic softener and found in many toys.
One of the researchers who conducted the new study recommended that parents, as a precaution, try to reduce exposures by cutting down on the use of lotions and shampoos on babies.

Research results will be published today in the journal Pediatrics.
