Why has my foundation color turned orange?

Sometime ago, some readers left comments in one of my entries that the Everyday Mineral foundation they’ve used changed to a darker tone after a few hours.  One even commented that hers turned to an orange hue!  I didn’t think I had a problem with mine until recently.  I noticed on at least two occasions, the color turned somewhat darker by the end of the day.  I also checked and noticed that my face was particularly oily on those days.   Is this what is meant by oxidization of makeup?

Why sunscreen is not enough at midday?

From where I live, going out at noon is really a skin hazard.  Because according to World Health Organization, our UV Index is high all year round; 10 being the lowest in December and 13 the highest during the months of March and April.  On top of that, it is well known that the intensity of UV radiation is highest at noon, which means, I get the sun’s rays heating straight down on me with very few of the rays getting scattered.  So whenever I’ve to pick my son at that hour from school, I not only make sure I have slapped on enough sunscreen on my face and hands, you can be sure to find me in a pair of sunglasses and carrying an umbrella too.
