    Gabby Ruiz of Dusty Girls Makeup says the average woman uses 12 personal care products, containing 168 unique ingredients, every day, and that can make a big impact if you have sensitive skin.

    The main ingredients to look out for in makeup include:

    Talc

    Used in personal care products like eye shadows to absorb moisture and prevent caking, some talc is also known to contain carcinogen asbestos.

    Bismuth

    This is a very heavy element found in nickel, tin and silver, and commonly found in particular foundations to give a “glowy” finish.

    Parabens

    These are a class of chemicals used to preserve makeup and curb bacterial growth, but a side-affect can be the disruption of hormonal functions.

    UV filters

    Studies have shown that several sunscreen chemicals indicate they mimic hormones and disrupt the hormone system.

    Silicones

    Silicones ensure makeup spreads better, but it can accumulate on the skin and clog the pores.
