Healthy Makeup For Skin: What Are The Advantages Of Mineral Cosmetics?

Many now agree that mineral cosmetics are the healthy makeup for skin as they are better for your skin than the synthetic versions. But what are the real advantages? Is there any hype we should avoid?

Bijani Mizell has published a useful guide on the website.

One of the advantages of healthy makeup for skin is especially useful at this time of year. Mineral makeup is better during the summer months as it will not melt off your face as some traditional liquid cosmetics will.

Mineral makeup also contains elements that help the skin. These include zinc oxide, which acts both as a sunscreen and an anti-inflammatory, silica and iron oxide. The point is these ingredients make an all natural makeup with naturally occurring elements.

All Natural Makeup: The Trend Towards The Natural Look

A small but increasing number of celebrities are beginning to appear without any makeup on at all. A significant number of women in day-to-day life are also opting for the natural look.

For some the reason is their skin reacts to traditional makeup, for others they simply prefer it that way but a significant number are now becoming aware of what they put on their face. They are living the maxim ‘you are what you eat,’ by applying it to cosmetics: ‘You are what you put on your skin.’

The truth is we need to be as careful about nutrition for our skin as much as for the rest of our bodies. Traditional commercial makeup can contain chemicals, which actually damage the skin.

To be fair many woman do look beautiful with no makeup at all. However, all natural makeup is now available to help create a beautiful healthy skin. In this way, perfect skin can be achieved through a healthy diet (and nutritional health supplements) and by using cosmetics that benefit the skin.

Indeed the best makeup application is one that looks like no makeup has been applied at all – the natural look. Good cosmetics, with natural ingredients, will subtly enhance your look without appearing artificial.

Health And Beauty Tip Number 3: All Natural Makeup Mascara

Another gem of wisdom from makeup artist to the stars,Tally Bookbinder.

When applying mascara, always have an old but clean mascara brush to hand. When you have applied the mascara, run the old brush up the eyelashes to remove any excess and prevent clogging.

Oh, and remember to brush from the roots upwards for best effect and only dip the brush in the mascara bottle once; to pump it in and out will encourage unfriendly bacteria. Your eyes are pretty sensitive as well as pretty!

Homemade Exfoliator Recipes

Gorgeous Oriental Girl Looking Back

Apart from eating foods good for skin, an alternative to encourage healthy skin is to make use of homemade recipes for exfoliation. An exfoliant is something that brings down the amount of dead cell accumulation on the skin. Whatever may be your skin condition; regular exfoliation will brighten the complexion, soften and smooth the skin, thereby reducing breakout activity. Here are some useful homemade Exfoliator Recipes.

Oily Skin Homemade Exfoliator

Mix lime juice with two bengal gram flour tablespoons and two pinches of salt. Prepare a chunky paste for exfoliation.

Dry Skin Homemade Exfoliator

Mix full cream milk with two bengal gram flour tablespoons and one teaspoon of honey to form a paste.

Salt-based Homemade Exfoliator

While salt is not among the foods good for skin when taken internally, it can actually help in exfoliation. You can rub salt on your wet skin, while you are in the shower. Wait some time (few minutes), rub the skin and wash away the salt. But, you should use a moisturizer on the skin, as this exfoliator can have drying effects.

Baking-Soda Exfoliator

To do this, you need one tablespoon of baking soda and water. Take a basin and put the baking soda in. Add water and prepare a thin paste. Apply the paste on the face and softly rub to exfoliate the dead cells. Leave the mix there for ten minutes. Wash your face with warm water and use a good moisturizer.

Whitening Exfoliation

For natural skin care, you can use the whitening form of exfoliation. You will need three tablespoons granulated sugar, half of the white of an egg and three lemon drops. Mix up all the ingredients and softly massage the face and neck for around five minutes. Then clean nicely with water.

Soft Scrub

For this one you will require three tablespoons honey and three tablespoons cornmeal. Blend the ingredients; rub in for five minutes and wash it off with cool water.

Sugar and Baby Oil Exfoliator

Combining sugar along with baby oil also makes a wonderful homemade exfoliator for skin care. The baby oil goes deep into the skin and moisturizers it, whereas the sugar helps in removing dead skin cells.

After you exfoliate

After finishing the exfoliation, it is important to use a toner that will take away any residues and help seal the skin, so as to make it tougher. Enjoy your exfoliation.

The February 2011 Proto-col National Conference

Product Display At Protocol Business Conference

On Sunday 6 February 2011, the Proto-col health and beauty company held it’s twice a year national conference and everyone from the company and a good representation of the consultants attended. Also there were some fascinating guest speakers.

The even was held at the Stareton Hall on the Royal Showground near Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, in the UK.

Snacks and beverages were available as were a range of product displays, staffed by knowledgeable staff and distributors ready to answer any questions asked. Proto-col staff ran an efficient product purchase system with a discount available for items bought at the event.

The introduction to the day was by National Trainer Dave Butler, followed by a quick welcome from Managing Director James Greenwell.

The first speaker was celebrity makeup expert Tally Bookbinder who did a demonstration of the Proto-col all natural makeup using as a model Louise Helyer. Apart from helping at the event and being a very professional model, Louise is also representing Great Britain in the Modern Pentathlon: just one of the athletes supporting the conference.

Tally shared her opinions of the all natural makeup produced by Proto-col as well as hints and tips on application and the features of the products. Having recently worked on the television show ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid,’ Tally was particularly interesting on the abuse teenagers and young women generally give their skin and how the all natural makeup from Proto-col is a better choice.

James Greenwell Talking At Protocol Business Conference

Next James Greenwell introduced nutrition expert Professor Greg Whyte who produced his usual blend of entertainment and fascinating insights into the world of sports nutrition. Of course Professor Whyte’s information was related to the nutritional health supplements supplied by Proto-col and this and other knowledge from the day will appear in future posts on

Particularly of interest was Professor Whyte’s explanation of the problems experienced by athletes: this was particularly well illustrated by a video of triathletes losing the use of their limbs as a result of poor nutritional preparation. Equally interesting was the understanding that sports nutrition can be relevant in everyday situations, including the struggle some people have simply to get up stairs.

James Greenwell returned to introduce three new products, Skin Plus, Calcium Complex and L-Carnitine, which will also appear on the pages of this website shortly. During his launch of these nutritional health supplements, James provided the audience with further fascinating insights into the working of the human body.

Following a short break, James returned to explain some administrative changes, including improvements to the sales websites (such as and monthly meetings. He also announced Proto-col nutritional health supplements are now available in a Harley Street health centre.

At the event those attending had brought along children’s books in response to an appeal from James to provide them for the children of St Lucia following damage to the island’s schools in a recent hurricane. James explained how the idea had come about and the success of the programme so far (if you would like to find out more about the Proto-col St Lucia appeal, you can visit the company’s Facebook page).

James then introduced motivational speaker Andy T. Hansen. Andy gave an entertaining but hard-hitting talk explaining how the present financial problems within the economy represented a great opportunity for the company and how we could set goals to achieve what we want.

Dave Butler returned to the stage to introduce a group of exciting incentives for consultants during 2011: these range from vouchers to a theatre break and a holiday to Barcelona. Dave then went on to give tips to the audience as the best ways to expand their individual businesses.

Everyone left the event better informed as to the immediate future of the company and a useful goody-bag laden with CDs, DVDs, new product information, details of the new incentives and other useful items. Many of us also left with a bag of products purchased at the event and a new confidence in both the products and the Proto-col company.

The next such conference is on Sunday 25 September, although there are also monthly meetings held around the country. If you would like to attend any of these events, please use the contact form on this page. Further details can be found on the ‘Events’ tab on .
