Dr. Baroody wants your experience with injections and surgeries to be a positive one. We are excited to announce that in 2018 we will be carrying jane iredale mineral cosmetics to help address any unsightly bruising after your procedure. This group of foundations, concealers (and more!) are made of the highest quality of ingredients to ensure satisfaction with coverage, application and texture. They are allergy tested to ensure avoidance of any ingredients that might be skin sensistizers. The foundations form a protective barrier on the skin that allows it to function and breathe normally. Laboratory tests confirm that all the products are non-comedogenic and do not block pores! We do not carry the entire jane iredale line, however, if you are concerned with bruising after surgery or an injection, we have products available in our office!
See Jane’s Story Below!
“I’m a Londoner who came to New York looking for adventure and found it! It began with a career in the entertainment industry working with actresses and models in television and film. As a casting director and producer, I got to know all aspects of an industry obsessed with appearances. A large part of the appearance tool kit, was, of course, makeup. However, it didn’t take me long to realize that makeup was still a second-class citizen. It didn’t matter what was in it, as long as it covered and stayed on long enough to get the shot. Worse was that makeup was contributing to problem skin and problem skin threatened careers and undermined self-confidence. 24 years ago, at three o’clock in the morning I had an idea: “How about a makeup that’s good for the skin?”
So in 1994, the jane iredale brand began with one product, Amazing Base (still a star in the line). It was immediately embraced by dermatologists and plastic surgeons because of its ability to cover, soothe and protect. Patients loved it because it didn’t feel like makeup; it just resulted in beautiful, flawless skin. As an added bonus, the quality of their complexions got better and better.
Meanwhile, I moved from the house where it all began to set up offices and distribution in rural Massachusetts. I really am a country girl at heart, so being surrounded by organic farms and gardens fed my spirit and inspired my work. (My dog liked it, too.) Bliss for me is walking in my garden and picking and eating a raspberry warm from the sun, then trying to figure out how to get that fresh, healthy experience into a product. I’m always guided by wanting the product to look good, feel good and be good for the skin. Being a no-fuss kind of person, I also want it to be easy to apply and multi-functional, so a woman can feel her best in the shortest amount of time.
The brand now reaches women of all ages and nationalities. Embedded in the DNA is the belief that makeup is at its best when it doesn’t try to make a woman conform to the latest fashion trends, but embraces her natural beauty and allows her personality to shine.
It seems to me that the possibilities are endless.”
1. Is the makeup safe for all skin types?
It’s important to know that anyone can be allergic or sensitive to anything. However, we have eliminated the top three sensitizers from our makeup, synthetic fragrance, most synthetic colorants and synthetic preservatives. We’ve also tested every product for sensitivity on a 50-person test panel in a laboratory. Individuals with extreme chemical sensitivities wear our makeup successfully. If in any doubt, patch-test the product on the inner-arm.
2. May I use jane iredale with Retin-A?
Yes. Our makeup can be used with any skin care regimen. The sunscreen protection our minerals provide is especially important while using Retin-A or AHAs.
3. Will the minerals cover bruising or birthmarks?
Yes. However, the shadow of some dark bruising may show through. Try Disappear, the peach Circle\Delete or Enlighten to camouflage anything that the powders won’t. Please refer to the individual products to learn how to use them.
4. Does jane iredale work on older or aging skin?
Yes. Because this is a light-reflective cosmetic, it obscures the look of fine lines and wrinkles and gives a healthy glow to the skin, making it look younger. Matte makeup absorbs light and allows the eye to see “into” the skin. On a very lined skin, after applying the minerals, it is helpful to spritz with one of our hydration sprays. This sets the makeup, softens lines and gives a dewy look. The technique of spritzing the sponge first and applying the minerals as a wash also helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and large pores.
