Many cosmetic companies have come out with new mineral makeup products and mineral makeup lines in recent years. And though most women know that mineral cosmetics are all-natural and good for their skin, some women are still hesitant to make the switch from traditional cosmetics. However, for those seeking to leave synthetic and chemically laden makeup behind in pursuit of a cleaner and more natural alternative, mineral makeup is a natural choice.
True mineral makeup does not contain any synthetic ingredients. It is made only of natural, crushed minerals from 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.
Mineral makeup is approved for use after chemical and laser peels and those with sensitive skin and 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. Intense cosmetic procedures can leave the face a bit raw and irritated, and applying traditional cosmetics over red, irritated skin can cause burning and itching from the chemicals it contains. Mineral makeup, however, is gentle enough to blend into the skin and help to conceal the less attractive side effects of these treatments.
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 products made from these ingredients, which include mineral makeup have the same sun fighting properties.
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. Unlike traditional makeup, mineral makeup is free from fragrance, alcohol, chemical dyes, talc, or other fillers. Most 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 in an opposite manner; and is light enough to dust the face rather than settling in. This helps faces of any age to appear more youthful and refined.
Mineral makeup delivers silky, buildable coverage that feels light, looks fresh all day, and leaves skin with a soft, luminous finish. It looks like a powder, feels like a cream, and buffs on like silk, giving skin a natural luminosity while feeling as if you are not wearing any makeup at all. Naturally water-resistant, even after a long day, mineral makeup stays fresh and gently absorbs excess oil, while minimizing the appearance of lines and pores without the buildup and weight of traditional makeup. Mineral makeup delivers the perfect amount of coverage that feels like air, looks fresh all day, and leaves skin with a naturally beautiful finish that lasts all day.
