Gorgeous, Luminous Skin...Follow these six steps.

Cleanse gently, once a day.
Unless you have oily skin, you only need to wash your face in the evening, with a creamy cleanser and lukewarm water. Give the cleanser time to work. Instead of scrubbing your face, let the cleanser sit on your skin for several seconds and break down the makeup, dirt, and oil.  In the morning, simply splash your face with lukewarm water. (If you're oily, use a gentle foaming cleanser morning and evening.)

Why Mineral Make-up?

The History:
Mineral makeup got its commercial start in the 1970's but its history is as ancient as the human desire to enhance one's looks. Mineral makeup is a return to technologies that have been in use since ancient times. Many ancient cultures used ground-up natural minerals as a means of applying color to the skin for decoration, camouflage, war paints, etc. Cleopatra's kohl-rimmed eyes are an example. The history of mineral makeup goes back much farther, even to early cave-dwellers.
