Mineral makeup has been around for decades quietly gaining
recognition for its healing and beautifying properties, but only in the
last few years has mineral makeup become a mainstream cosmetic solution
for those seeking to leave synthetic and chemically laden make up items
behind in pursuit of a cleaner and more natural alternative.
Mineral Makeup is Pure
Mineral makeup does not contain
any synthetic ingredients. It is made only of minerals found naturally
occurring on the earth. Many consider mineral makeup to be pure enough
to sleep in at night as there is nothing irritating in the makeup to
cause skin problems such as redness or breakouts after a good night’s
Mineral Makeup is Soothing
Mineral makeup is approved for
use after chemical and laser peels. The intense cosmetic procedures
leave the face a bit raw and irritated, and applying even concealer over
the red skin will cause burning and itching from the chemicals it
contains interacting with the exposed skin. Mineral makeup, however, is
gentle enough to blend into the skin and help to conceal the less
attractive side effects of the beautification process.
Mineral Makeup Doesn’t Age Skin
Many cosmetics seem to
age skin more – if not literally though toxins and chemicals, than
through appearances when power and foundation products pull down the
winkles of the face and settle into the small lines making them appear
much larger. Mineral makeup is light enough to dust the face rather than
settling in. This helps faces of any age to appear more youthful and
Mineral Makeup is a Natural Sunscreen
The two most
prominent ingredients in mineral makeup, zinc oxide and titanium
dioxide, have natural UVA and UVB blocking properties. Therefore
materials made from these products, which included mineral makeup have
the same sun fighting properties. There is no longer any need to wear a
greasy sunscreen product under your makeup. You can simply dust on your
sunscreen at the same time you’re starting your morning makeup routine.
Mineral Makeup is Ideal for Sensitive Skin
ongoing skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema all rely on
mineral makeup products to help soothe flare-ups while looking fabulous
at the same time. Not only does the mineral makeup block the damaging
sun which can be hard on problematic skin, it also works to actually
soothe and possibly heal the problem areas through a natural combination
of the Earth’s minerals.
Mineral Makeup Has a Lightweight, Gorgeous Coverage
applied, mineral makeup is known for its extremely lightweight yet very
generous coverage. Dust powder on and you can’t feel it on your face.
Even after a long day, mineral makeup stays put to continue providing
you a refreshed, glowing look without the weight of a “full face of
makeup” wearing you down.
Mineral Makeup Nourishes Skin
In addition to soothing and
protecting your skin, mineral makeup often contains ingredients that
can help to give you a full spa experience while nourishing your skin
with many natural compounds and its pure composition. In fact, mineral
makeup has been compared to a spa experience with many of the same
ingredients used in both.
