We know that a proper skincare routine plays a central role in maintaining a healthy complexion, but taking care of your skin doesn’t end with the last step of your daily cleansing routine.

The makeup you layer on top of your sunscreens and moisturizers can hurt or help your skin, making it an important yet often overlooked element of proper skincare.

Many makeup products clog your pores — leading to acne, blackheads, and enlarged pores. In other words: you get more of the very same issues that you’re using makeup to disguise!

In the interest of creating a makeup line that is clinically proven to make your skin healthier, Glo Minerals was developed with dermatologists and our patients in mind.

Below are six reasons why dermatologists and our patients love this award-winning, skin-enhancing makeup brand!

1. Glo Minerals Offers Buildable Makeup Coverage

Before we talk about the health benefits of Glo Minerals, we’ll start by recognizing the fact that this is first and foremost really good makeup.

To quote one of many patients who have tried and fallen in love with this brand:

“I love Glo Minerals. I’ve tried cheaper and more expensive products and Glo’s pressed base provides amazing coverage with no breakouts. I can’t say the same for any other brand I’ve tried.”

These mineral-based products provide buildable coverage — meaning the same product has your back whether you’re aiming for sheer or full coverage, or anywhere in between.

Glo Minerals products are triple-milled, so the concentrated pigments lay down smoother on your skin — giving you more effective, even, and long-lasting coverage.

2. Glo Minerals Protects Your Skin

Glo Minerals help your skin look better in the short and the long run.

The brand’s foundations offer mineral sun protection which contain the equivalent of SPF 15, making them great for layering on top of your SPF 30+ sunscreen for extra protection.

Glo Minerals foundations are also broad spectrum, meaning they protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. This means they help you avoid both the health risks (skin cancer) and the cosmetic concerns associated with sun exposure, such as wrinkles and dark spots.

Glo Minerals products also protect your skin from environmental damage; another stressor that can wreak havoc on your complexion.

These products are formulated with an antioxidant blend containing vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea — ingredients that have been proven to deliver highly effective protection against the free radicals that assault our skin.

3. Glo Minerals Improves Your Skin’s Health

Besides protecting your skin from future environmental and sun damage, Glo Minerals makeup can help you turn back the clock on past damage and actually improve the condition of your skin.

Glo Minerals products are formulated with pharmaceutical grade ingredients that deliver anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial benefits.

They are also non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog your pores and cause breakouts.

4. Glo Minerals is Right for All Skin Types

The fact that Glo Minerals makeup is non-comedogenic makes it an ideal choice for even the most sensitive skin types.

This includes those with conditions such as acne and rosacea, who can have an especially hard time finding the right makeup products.

Everyone loves the results they get in terms of both makeup coverage and skin health!

Glo Minerals formulas are free of common irritants that aggravate skin conditions — such as perfumes, dyes, parabens, and talc.

5. Glo Minerals is Suitable for Post-Treatment Use

Many skin treatments require patients to avoid makeup for a certain amount of time following a medical procedure. Our patients love Glo Minerals because it lets them break this “no-makeup” rule!

Unlike traditional makeup products, Glo Minerals is non-occlusive; it lets your skin breathe.

This makes it ideal for use after a chemical peel, laser procedure, or any other skin treatment we offer at our Alabaster and Birmingham offices.

6. Glo Minerals Was Formulated for Skin Health
