I recommend that my patients wait until there is no "raw" skin or weepiness before they wear mineral make-up.  The skin can still be peeling but there shouldn't be "wet" areas.

I have my patients begin mineral makeup once the skin has reepithelialized or the flakiness of the peel has worn off. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
