    I was wondering if there were ingredients in makeup or lotions to stay away from? Ingredients that are harsh, drying, and generally not healthy or could compromise the health of the skin?

    Also, is mineral makeup healthier for the skin? I switched to using this type b/c I thought it would be healthier for my skin.

    I dont know what ingrediants are bad, but I dont know that mineral makeup is the healthiest kind of makeup. My mom worked at bare escuentals for 2 years, and all of there makeup is pure natural minerals. This is better than say, a liquid foundation, because it blends in with your skin and doesnt lay on top of it.

    http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htmThis site has a list of ingrdients that cause acne and ingredients that irritate the face (I think this is more what you are looking for). As far as mineral makeup being better for the skin, I think it depends on the person. Like some peoples faces are sensitive to talc which is in many mineral makeups.[/url]

    I know that you should avoid lip balms that have camphor in it UNLESS you are treating chapped lips.
