How to Use Bare Minerals Blemish Treatment

By Contributing Writer

  • Overview

    Bare Minerals is one of the leading mineral makeup brands. Last year, Bare Minerals introduced its Rare Minerals line. This product line focuses on specific skin care concerns, such as aging skin and acne. Rare Minerals Blemish Therapy is designed specifically to treat, prevent and reduce the redness of post acne marks and present breakouts. While Rare Minerals Blemish Therapy has similarities to the mineral foundations, the application is slightly different. With the proper tools and knowledge, you can learn how to successfully use Rare Minerals Blemish Therapy to treat your acne.
    • Step 1

      Prep your skin. Before you apply the Rare Minerals Blemish Therapy, it is important to prepare your skin. Use a cleanser to wash your face and remove any dirt and makeup. Towel-dry it gently. Dampen a cotton ball with toner. Apply the toner to your face. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer. Allow the moisturizer approximately 10 minutes to absorb into your skin before proceeding to the next step.
    • Step 2

      Locate problem areas. Once your face has been thoroughly cleansed, it's time to make an evaluation. Look for areas that have active acne or post acne marks. These areas are typically characterized by redness, indentations or visible bumps. This step is important because it helps you decide how much of the product you want to place in the lid. Knowing how much you need allows you to get the most out of the product by not wasting any of it.

    • Step 3

      Prep the brush. It is important to know that Rare Minerals Blemish Therapy should only be applied with a makeup brush. Using your fingers or a cotton swab will waste the product and potentially contaminate it. Tap a little bit of the Rare Minerals into the lid that comes with the product. Swirl the makeup brush in the lid to gather the product on the bristles. Tap the brush on the jar to remove any excess product.
    • Step 4

      Apply the Rare Minerals Blemish Therapy. Once your brush has been prepped, it's time to apply the product to your blemishes. Look into a mirror and locate the blemish. Gently tap the loaded makeup brush onto the blemish. Reload the makeup brush with the product and proceed to the next blemish. Continue this process until all the blemishes have been treated.
    • Step 5

      Finish up your routine. The final steps will differ depending on whether it's daytime or nighttime. If it is daytime, you will need to follow up with foundation, concealer and the rest of your makeup. If you are applying the product at night, there isn't anything left to do to finish your routine. Once the Rare Minerals Blemish Treatment has been applied, you can continue on with the rest of your evening and let the rest of your skin breathe. Stick with this process and your blemishes will clear up in no time.
