Mirvaso: Break Up with Your Makeup + Skincare Tips!

June 22, 2014



As a makeup enthusiast and product junkie I love to try different makeup products on the market, but my ultimate goal and priority is to have a healthy, radiant skin. In my everyday beauty routine I always try to focus on keeping up with a healthy, clean skin as a great base under my makeup and I really do pay attention to the skincare products I am using. We all love good concealer with great coverage, but the truth is, if our skin is missing something, we won't resolve anything by just covering it up with tons of product. I used to suffer from a really bad chin acne recently, and temporary I used a full coverage foundation and concealer to cover it up, but at the same time I wanted to paid closer attention to why suddenly I am having such issues.  I start eating healthier and change few of my skincare products including my face cleanser and after few weeks I can enjoy clean skin again. 

One of the most common skin condition a lot of people suffer is rosacea (facial redness), which is a skin inflammation caused by dilated facial blood vessels. I personally do not suffer from rosacea, but for those of you Ladies that do, there is a great news! You don't have to cover it up anymore, you can treat it with product called Mirvaso®.
